Notes:

  1. Brown sugar will create a darker orange-hued carrot souffle. If you’d like your souffle to be a brighter orange, white sugar can be substituted. The resulting souffle will be brighter in color but less complex in flavor.
  2. Be sure to use Diamond Crystal kosher salt. Different kosher salt brands have varied crystal sizes and may affect the salinity of the recipe.
