Weiss Wednesday: Rosh Hashanah Is Upon Us! Lightened Up Carrot Soufflé Recipe

This recipe was featured in an email from the website. The original version of this delicious Rosh Hashanah favorite was weighted down by a stick of butter and a cup of sugar. This lightened version eliminates 8.5 g of fat and 102 calories by accenting the natural sweetness of carrots, and adding a punch with the addition of sour cream. Because this dish contains no beaten egg whites, it is not a true soufflé, (the name is derived from its light, airy texture, and this is more dense). Similar in color and flavor to sweet potato casserole, it pairs well with brisket or chicken.



PS- To make this recipe easier, use an emulsion blender. This is mine from Target! ($29.99)


PSS- This recipe is also good to add to your Thanksgiving menu in November.
