I grew up eating this soufflé, but my mom used to make it in Brazil, with potatoes as the base to it! Well, my Keto Cheese Soufflé is lighter, low carb and easy to make.
Keto Cheese Soufflé

Before You Start
You can choose other types of cheese, but make sure the cheese is a good brand, meaning, it is real cheese, so it easily melts and compliments the other ingredients.
I personally like Kraft and Sargento. They are my favorites!
Sometimes I add Pepper Jack to Mozzarella for an extra kick!
Herbs are up to you, you can also add chopped parsley or chives instead of the Italian herbs.
This time I tried it with herbs and chives
Keep in mind egg whites will take a while to reach the “fluffy” consistency, called “clara em neve” in Brazil, because it looks like snow. So I personally start that process early on.
Make sure you Almond Flour is finely sifted and blends well. If you have nut allergies, you can try using King Arthur Keto Wheat Flour, but I prefer Almond Flour for this recipe.
Coconut flour will NOT work, trust me, I’ve tried.
Fold the Egg Whites softly, not letting it lose that fluffiness, because that is what is going to make the soufflé rise!
Keep in mind it’s just 2.3 net carbs per serving and 394 calories, so you can plan your day!
This easy low carb Keto meal will become your favorite comfort food.
