Tzimmes Souffle (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Kosher by Design
Serves: 10 to 12

5 large eggs, separated
2 cups carrots, finely grated
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup matzo meal
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. orange juice
1 can crushed pineapple with heavy syrup

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9"x9" square pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until they are stiff.

Using a spatula, fold in the carrots, sugar, and matzo meal.

Fold in the egg yolks, oil, lemon juice, orange juice, and pineapple with the syrup. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until top is golden. Scoop or spoon out.

Poster's Notes:
It takes about 5 to 6 carrots, to get 2 cups of grated carrots.

The recipe doesn't specify the size of the can of pineapple; I use the 20-ounce size. Also, I use pineapple in its own juice.
