easy Carrot Souffle

This easy carrot souffle recipe is a great side dish for fall. This easy carrot souffle is also a fantastic side dish for Thanksgiving dinner and it will definitely impress your guests. As much as I love this for Thanksgiving or other holiday meals, it’s also an awesome way to use up any extra carrots I have or to make an every day meal a bit more gourmet.

Are souffles hard to make?

Never made a souffle before? Don’t worry! I know the word souffle can sound kind of well, intimidating but souffles are actually pretty easy to make. There is a little bit of prep but I don’t think the recipe is difficult at all.

This easy carrot souffle also pairs nicely with a chicken dinner such as lemon rosemary chicken. I promise this is not a super complicated dish to prepare and that anyone can make a souffle.

Do I need a souffle dish to make a souffle?

A question I have seen from people who have never made a souffle or haven’t made one in a long time is if they need a souffle dish to make a souffle. The answer is no. You can use any oven safe casserole dish. I have used a 1.5 quart casserole dish before although a souffle dish does make it special, it is not absolutely necessary.

Do I have to use baby carrots for a carrot souffle or can I also used canned carrots?

I usually use baby carrots when making carrot souffle but you can also use canned carrots or you can also use two whole carrots. If using whole carrots, wash them well and then peel some of the skin from it then slice and bake using the directions for baby carrots below. If you are using canned carrots, drain the can and heat them on a stovetop with the brown sugar and butter as mentioned below. Let them cook on a low for a few minutes and then cool and continue with step four below.

    1. You could use an 8 x 8 dish but something a little smaller might work better as it’ll come out a little thin. Or you could also double the recipe and an 8 x 8 would be fine!
