OK so this isn’t technically a souffle. Definition of a soufflé: “A light, fluffy baked dish made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites combined with various other ingredients and served as a main dish or sweetened as a dessert.” But all of this is true other than the eggs are all in together, and I’m presenting this as a side dish instead of an entrée. But as for light, fluffy, and baked – this recipe is definitely all three! It’s also tasty and low in carbs. 🙂

The first task is to cook the cauliflower until super tender. Steam it , boil it, microwave it, whatever you like.Easy Low Carb Cauliflower Souffle

When the cauliflower is soft, mash it until smooth (you can prepare this in advance if you like).Easy Low Carb Cauliflower Souffle

Let the cauliflower cool, then add eggs, heavy cream, finely shredded mozzarella cheese, chopped fresh parsley, salt and plenty of black pepper.Easy Low Carb Cauliflower Souffle

  1. Is a soufflé pan necessary for this recipe? I don’t have one, and am wondering what I could use instead. Thanks!

  2. Really nice recipe thank you, it’s like a cross between cauliflower cheese and a Cheese souffle. I like the fact it’s so easy to make ☺
