This was just okay. The flavor was really mild and the texture definitely didn't measure up to a real souffle. Unlike so many great Cooking Light recipes, this tasted and felt like a light recipe. Not worth the effort.

Although chervil is a traditional component of fines herbes, oregano is more readily available and makes a tasty substitute. Serve as a side dish or a light dinner with a green salad.
