While this soufflé isn’t the traditional rush it to the table before it falls type of French soufflé, it’s still light and fluffy, and full of sweet carrot flavor that just about everybody will love.

How is this carrot soufflé different from a traditional French soufflé?

  • A classic French soufflé is made with egg whites that are beaten until stiff, and then folded into the base of the recipe. When it bakes the egg whites help it to rise nice and tall. A soufflé made this way will sometimes fall after it comes out of the oven as it starts to cool, so cooks will rush it to the table while it’s still impressively high.
  • This ‘soufflé’ is so named because it has a similar fluffy texture, and is made with lots of eggs. But in this case they are beaten into the dish whole. It does puff up a bit as it bakes, and also sinks down a bit as it cools, but not nearly as dramatically as its namesake. The texture is denser, but smooth and creamy, which I love.

This creamy soufflé is a savory recipe, and I love it with a shower of snipped chives, but there’s no reason you couldn’t sweeten it up like I do with my fall Butter Pecan Pumpkin Soufflé or my Butter Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole. Those two side dishes include the tantalizing addition of a sweet streusel topping. You could substitute carrots for the pumpkin or sweet potato in either recipe for a springtime version if that tempts you.

I love this dish because it’s unexpected, but not crazy in any way, everybody at the table, even the little ones, will love the fluffy texture and the sweet flavor of the carrots. It complements ham perfectly, but will fit right in with so many everyday meals.

Carrots are one of the first things I reach for when I first feel that hint of spring in the air. Sure, they’re always there in the produce aisle, but somehow they take on a new significance as the season shifts from winter to spring…

  • Rainbow Carrots with Browned Butter and Sage ~ another carrot side dish that works for any spring meal.
  • Rye and Carrot Salad ~ this is one of my favorite salads on the blog, it’s unique and really delicious.
  • Carrot Soup with Ginger and Lime ~ a classic with a twist.
  • Quick Pickled Rainbow Carrots ~ rainbow carrots are so pretty, and this is a great way to show them off. Use these pickled carrots for quick healthy snacking.

This oven and broiler safe baking dish isn’t only for soufflés, it can be used to bake hot dips and mac and cheese, even chili. If you love glass, Pyrex makes a basic soufflé dish, too.

I recommend the 2 quart size, it’s the sweet spot, not too big or too small.

  • Preheat oven to 350F and lightly butter your baking dish. I used a round 2 quart dish but you can also use an 8x8 square baker.

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil with a teaspoon of salt and add the carrots. Gently boil the carrots until they are tender. (Check with the point of a sharp knife.) Drain.

  • Meanwhile, I blend the buttermilk, eggs, and salt in my Vitamix (you can also use your food processor.)

  • I'll add the drained cooked carrots, butter, and sugar, and blend until the mixture is completely smooth.

  • Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the cheese, flour, and baking powder. Pour into your prepared dish, spreading out evenly.

  • Bake for about an hour, or a little longer, until puffed up and just beginning to brown (cover loosely with foil if it seems to be browning too soon.) It shouldn't jiggle in the center, or look wet inside the cracks.

  • Serve while hot, with a shower of snipped chives


To make this ahead, you can keep the unbaked soufflé in the refrigerator up to a day before. Then bring to room temperature before baking.
