One of my favorite fall recipes (besides pumpkin pie) is pumpkin soufflé. And with pumpkin season just around the corner, I figured I had better remind myself how good these little desserts are! Pumpkin soufflé makes for the best snack food or breakfast!
I love the light and fluffy texture of this soufflé! This pumpkin soufflé is so much fun to make and tastes great! I especially like to eat it when it is fresh out of the oven. The best part is, this soufflé is grain-free, gluten-free, nut free, corn free, and dairy free! It also contains pumpkin which has some great nutritional benefits.
Pumpkin contains many good vitamins and minerals. It is a good source of fiber and antioxidants. Pumpkin is a great source of vitamin A, a 100 gram serving gives you more than your daily vitamin A requirement! Vitamin A helps with good vision, prevents heart disease, and prevents cancer. Pumpkin also contains vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, copper, and manganese in substantial amounts.
The seeds of a pumpkin also contain the amino acid called tryptophan, which gets converted into GABA once in the brain. GABA is a nutrient that relaxes the body and calms the nerves.
Know that you are not only consuming something delicious, but also something nutritious when you eat these delectable pumpkin soufflés.
Hope you enjoy this delicious, light pumpkin soufflé as much as I do! They really are an easy recipe to whip up, whether you are making them for snack (which i do frequently), breakfast, or dessert! I think they taste the best when they are eaten shortly after they come out of the oven!
