Goat cheese soufflés with fresh thyme and lemon

Whether you’re making a sweet soufflé or a savory one, the occasion is always memorable. For some reason, these light-as-air treats lift your mood as soon as they pop out of the oven… especially if you’ve been worried sick about them rising at all!

I’ll confess that I’ve never had a failed soufflé. I remember making them as a child (with my grandmother’s loving guidance), and perhaps I had a few mishaps then. But if there were any problems, I don’t have the faintest recollection – a great blessing indeed, since it has freed me from the fear of tackling the iconic dish.

Here the tangy fresh goat cheese (don’t forget to try your hand at making your own!), the aromatic thyme and the vibrant lemon zest make for a most delectable soufflé.

So if you’ve never made a soufflé, I hope this recipe (and my vote of confidence) entices you to dive right in. (The step-by-step videos are here to hold your hand!). And if you’re an old hat at making the puffed-up treats, then I hope this recipe will lure you into your kitchen once again.

May your soufflés rise to the high heavens!
