  • 100 ml vegetable stock
  • 3 large eggs separate
  • ½ cup grated gruyere or cheddar cheese


  • Begin by buttering and flouring 4 round cup moulds, large teacups that can go in the oven work well.

  • Add the flour to the onions and cook out heat the milk and stock and gradually add to the onions, stirring through. Return the mix to a simmer and cook for about 2-3 minutes to thicken.

  • Preheat oven to 170C, in a mixer with a whisk, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until firm peaks.
  • Fold the whites through the onion mix and then spoon into the moulds ¾ full then bake them in a baking tray filled with boiling water.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes then remove from the oven and carefully turn them out onto a plate to store or into a gratin dish.
  • To serve, preheat oven to 200C. pour the cream over the souffles, sprinkle the cheese around the souffles and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending if the souffles are at room temp or from the fridge cold
