The first time I ever tried carrot soufflé was over a decade ago. It was love at first bite!

This simple side dish is rich, creamy, and loaded with carrots. You can decide whether to make it sweet or savory.

For our recipe, we chose a sweet version. However, I left instructions for a savory soufflé in the tips section.

How to make carrot soufflé?

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. and grease a 2.5 quart baking (or casserole) dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Afterward, peel and roughly chop your carrots. Place them in a stock pot with salted water over high heat.

Next, let the carrots boil for about 15-minutes to soften them. I recommend placing them in an ice bath.

That way, it will cool them off and stop the cooking process.

Once that’s done, drain the carrots and put them into the food processor.

Place the dish into the oven to bake for 65-minutes. The top should be golden brown and the center should be firm.

Recipe Tips and FAQ’s:

  • If you don’t have a food processor, you should be able to blend the ingredients using a counter-top blender.
  • For a savory carrot soufflé, omit (leave out) the sugar and add 1 teaspoon of salt and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper.
  • Any leftovers can be stored in a sealed container, in your fridge, for up to 3 days.

Can you freeze carrot soufflé?

Yes, after it has been cooked. When properly stored in your freezer, it should hold for up to 2 months. Just be sure to thaw it in your fridge before reheating the dish.


Does carrot soufflé need to be refrigerated?

Because this dish is made with eggs, butter, and other perishable ingredients, it has to be stored in your fridge.
