Broccoli Cheese Souffle (KBB #12)

taste-o-meter: 7/10
makes: 6 souffles (if using ramekins)

This was a dish that I have never eaten nor I know how to pronounce :) . I really wanted to say something about this challenge and make a good story out of it. But, I really cant. All I can think of ,right now, is my thesis. How I have been working hard on it; how the deadline is dangerously approaching; or how the professors gonna interpret my results. On top of that, I also need to think about sending my things back home, return the apartment, face the possibility of being homeless in October.

Ok, Let’s just stop the rambling. I am still in good spirit. I just need to keep trucking and keep spending those long hours in the lab.

Onto the challenge, It was not that hard to make these souffles. As the name points out, they tasted very cheesy. I added a couple of finely-chopped broccoli florets, which gave a nice break from the whole cheesy theme. Here’s the recipe for these souffles.

I just realized I forgot to make the step-by-step pictures. I’m sorry KBB admin.

(Broccoli) Cheese Souffles

Sumber:
The Perfect Cookbook by David Herbert. Penguin Books Australia Ltd 2003.

Ingredients/Bahan-bahan:

* 100g unsalted butter / mentega tawar
* ½ cup plain (all-purpose) flour / tepung terigu
* 300ml milk / susu
* 1 cup grated cheddar / cheddar parut
* 2 Tbs / sdM freshly grated parmesan / parmesan parut
* ½ tsp Dijon mustard / mustard Dijon
* pinch / sejumput cayenne pepper
* 4 eggs / telur, separated / pisahkan
* I added a couple of finely chopped broccoli florets

Directions/Cara Pembuatan:

Preheat the
oven to 190C (375F, Gas Mark 5). Grease and lightly flour six ½-cup-capacity souffle dishes.
Panaskan oven suhu 190C (375F, Gas Mark 5). Minyaki/olesi mentega dan taburkan tepung loyang souffle dengan kapasitas ½ cup sebanyak 6 buah.

Melt butter
in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Gradually add the milk and whisk continuously over medium heat until the mixture is smooth, thickens and comes to the boil. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Lelehkan mentega di panci kecil dengan api kecil. Tambahkan tepung lalu masak sambil diaduk-aduk selama 1 menit. Tambahkan susu sedikit demi sedikit dan whisk terus menerus dengan api sedang hingga adonan lembut, mengental dan mendidih. Biarkan dingin sejenak selama 5 menit.

Transfer the
mixture to a bowl and stir in the cheddar, parmesan, mustard and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
Pindahkan adonan ke dalam mangkuk dan masukkan keju cheddar, parmesan, mustard dan cayenne pepper. Aduk rata.

Lightly beat the egg yolks and add these to the cheese mixture. Mix well.
Kocok ringan kuning telur dan masukkan ke dalam adonan keju. Aduk rata.

With an electric mixer, whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl until firm peaks form. Fold a quarter of the whites through the cheese mixture to slacken it slightly, then gently fold through the remaining whites.
Kocok putih telur menggunakan electric mixer hingga mencapai firm peak. Masukkan seperempat adonan putih telur ke dalam adonan keju untuk sedikit ‘melemaskan’ adonan, lalu masukkan sisanya perlahan.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared dishes and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until risen and golden. Don’t be tempted to open the oven until the souffles have risen. Serve immediately.
Sendokkan adonan ke dalam loyang yang sudah disiapkan lalu panggang selama 20-25 menit, atau hingga mengembang naik dan kecoklatan. Jangan tergoda untuk membuka oven sebelum souffles betul-betul sudah mengembang/naik. Hidangkan segera.
