My Easy Carrot Soufflé is dense, creamy, slightly sweet, and has a little more texture than your average soufflé; just how I like it. And you’ll like it too. This side dish is perfect for the holidays, great for any family gatherings, and the ideal complement to any main entree.

I laugh (in my mind) as I think of my first encounters with carrots. I grew up watching Bugs Bunny always eating and chasing down carrots so I knew it just had to be something good about them. 🙂

Originating in the 18th century in the France region, soufflé is simply a baked dish that combines eggs with various ingredients — and for this recipe, I went with carrots. Unlike the traditional soufflé, although it does rise a bit, it will fall as it cools.

Plus, as I mentioned earlier, I like a little texture in this recipe, so while it’s creamy, it’s not overly “smooth.” This is a pretty simple recipe to pull together and the combination of carrots and those holiday spices will have everyone eating a bowl full.

How to Make Carrot Souffle:

Begin by boiling your carrots for 10 to 15 minutes to make sure they’re soft enough to mush together. I don’t blend my carrots, but you can choose to use a blender if you are wanting a more smooth texture and consistency. I use a typical potato smasher for the job.

After the carrots have the consistency you are looking for, add the remaining ingredients and egg (one at a time) while whisking.

Bake this delicious dish for 45 to 50 minutes and it will be ready to enjoy.

Note: Because this soufflé is dense, you don’t have to worry about the soufflé falling much. It does rise some, but don’t expect the typical scaffold that would normally keep it from collapsing.

There is just something about butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg, that gets me thinking about the holidays! And since they are around the corner, this will be a great recipe to bring to the table to make a great impression on everyone.

  1. Delicious. I made 1/2 the recipe as the full recipe was too much for a single person, and it taste so delicious. Will definitely make again. Thank you.

  2. Could you put mini marshmallows on top or would it make it too sweet?

    • Eric Jones

      Of course! But it will make it even sweeter and it is already sweet. It really depends on your preference.

  3. Bruh… this was SO good! And just cause I’m a spice fiend, I also added mace, allspice, cloves, cardamom
