Ingredients
  

  • - 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • - 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • - 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • - 1 cup milk
  • - 10 oz frozen chopped kale, thawed, squeezed dry (I used bagged fresh kale and chopped it myself)
  • - 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • - 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • - 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • - 5 large eggs, separated, plus 1 large egg white
  • - 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon butter on bottom and sides of a 6-cup souffle dish (I used a rubber spatula).
  • Sprinkle in 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, turning to coat completely.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a small pot over medium heat.
  • Stir in flour. Cook 1 minute.
  • Whisk in milk and bring to a simmer. Cook 1 minute, until thickened.
  • Stir in kale, 1/2 teaspoon salt, nutmeg and pepper.
  • Whisk egg yolks in a large bowl.
  • Slowly stir a third of warm kale mixture into yolks (Mixing too quickly could cause eggs to scramble).
  • Stir in remaining mixture and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and 1/8 teaspoon salt on low speed for 1 minute.
  • Increase speed to high and beat 1 to 2 minutes, until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold egg whites into yolk mixture. Don't overmix or the souffle won't rise properly.
  • Transfer to prepared dish. Place in oven and reduce heat to 375 degrees.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until souffle has risen and is browned.
  • Quickly insert an instant-read thermometer into center of souffle; temperature should register at least 140 degrees.
  • Serve immediately.
