Tender, pillowy, rising souffles that are spiced to perfection.
Prepare ahead: Bake two average-sized sweet potatoes at 400 F for 45 minutes or until soft. Cool completely. (I usually do this earlier in the week so I can make the souffles quickly when I’m ready.)
Preheat the oven to 400 F and move the top rack down to the center. Butter and sprinkle with sugar six 8-ounce ramekins and set them on a cookie sheet.
Peel the potatoes. Place the milk, pumpkin pie spice, egg yolks, flour, salt and sweet potato flesh in the blender. Blend on high until completely smooth. Then pour the mixture into a bowl.
Rinse the blender jar with hot soapy water and dry thoroughly. Then place the egg whites, sugar and cornstarch in the blender. Blend on a low setting until very frothy. The egg white will not whip into a meringue because they will not get enough air in the blender, but “very frothy” will do the trick!
Pour the frothy egg whites over the sweet potato mixture and fold it in.
Pour the mixture evenly into the prepared ramekins and put the cookie sheet with the ramekins on it into the preheated oven. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until they rise high above the ramekins.
Remove from the oven, dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
The best stuffed portabellos ever, and they are gluten-free and high in protein using almond meal instead of bread crumbs!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
