Nigel Slater’s fuss-free soufflés are perfect for using up any leftover cheese and herbs and are ready in 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
Lightly butter three shallow ovenproof bowls or ramekins and dust them with a little of the grated parmesan.
Separate the eggs, putting the whites into a bowl big enough to whisk them in.
Mash the leftover cheese into the egg yolks, then stir in the cream, chopped herbs and a seasoning of black pepper and a very little salt.
Whisk the egg whites until they are almost stiff, then fold them firmly but gently into the cheese mixture, using a large metal spoon. Lastly, fold in all but a couple of spoonfuls of the remaining grated parmesan.
Divide the mixture among the three buttered bowls. Scatter over the remaining parmesan, put the dishes onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, until lightly risen and creamy inside.
Serve immediately whilst the puddings are still puffed and golden.
