Roasted Garlic Soufflé

In playing with the Epicurious app on my iPhone, I stumbled upon a recipe for Roasted Garlic Soufflé. It had me at “3 large heads garlic, left whole, plus 3 garlic cloves, smashed.”

Cari and I have trouble resisting anything with lots of garlic, as was evidenced at an early dinner party where we served a garlic soup that had about a head of garlic in each bowl. And so, as has happened so many times before at 71, an indulgent-sounding side dish served as the inspiration for a full meal. We ended up eating this with an oven-broiled butterflied leg of lamb. More on that later.

Since the Epicurious recipe serves eight, we cut it in half.  It wasn’t a perfect soufflé, with part of it collapsing in the toaster oven (our regular oven was busy cooking our lamb and probably would’ve done a better job.  It was still delicious, and we practically scraped the dish empty of its contents (did I say it served four?  And that it was just Cari and I eating it?  Yeah.).   So very tasty; definitely something we will prepare for guests at a future dinner party.
