I’m a really big fan of souffles. I love them ever since I can remember but the problem with souffles is that most of them are not that great for someone who tries to lose weight. They have a lot of cheese on top, the sauce contains flour, most of them are oily.
Well, I ran out of ideas of what to cook one day and came up with a not so traditional vegetable souffle. It’s very easy to make and, despite that I’, not the brightest cook, my significant other asked for seconds (and he doesn’t even like veggies that much).
This souffle is so low in calories and so healthy, you’re gonna want seconds too 🙂
Here’s what you need:
- 2-3 tomatoes
- 1 zucchini
- some cheese
- 1 spoon of olive oil
Here’s how you prepare it:
- Steam the broccoli and cauliflower (I prefer them steamed, but you can also boil them in water and a pinch of salt)
- Slice up the tomatoes and the zucchini.
- In your casserole, add 1 spoon of olive oil and spread it all around. Add one layer of tomatoes, then add one layer of broccoli and cauliflower on top, then add one layer of zucchini.
- Grate cheese on top.
- Stick it in the oven for about 20 minutes (until the cheese on top starts to form a crust)
- Ta-daa! Now you can eat.
Now, my casserole is perfect for the ingredients above, but if yours is bigger, use a larger quantity of each ingredient. The important thing is that one serving has about 60-70 calories (it depends on how much cheese you add on top). Anyway, it’s less than 100 calories for sure.
- you don’t have to use the exact same veggies I used. Try different combinations, add mushrooms, beans, asparagus… add whatever you like or find in your fridge.
- this dish goes great with some grilled chicken or something similar.
