3 salty soufflé recipes

The soufflé is a light dish with a smooth texture that comes from France. It is a truly wonderful dish that is made with egg whites with a touch of snow and béchamel sauce and cooked in the oven.

For this it is necessary to use the Bechamel sauce, which tends to enrich the soufflé, and which precisely helps to increase the flavor of other ingredients such as vegetables, nuts, vegetables, cheese, seafood, and can be prepared in both salty and sweet recipes.

If you love soufflés, or you dare to make them at home, then we will show you how to make 3 recipes with soufflé. Of course, as all souffle recipes are made with bechamel we facilitate the steps to prepare a bechamel.
