Savory Pumpkin Souffle Recipe

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup enriched cornmeal
One 16 oz. can organic pumpkin
1 1/2 cup milk
1 t. salt
1 t. curry powder
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. pepper
6 egg yolks, beaten
6 egg whites

Heat oven 350. In heavy 2 qt. saucepan, sauté onions in butter over medium heat until tender. Combine chicken broth & cornmeal; add to onions along with pumpkin, milk, salt & spices. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat. Cook over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat; pour into large bowl.
Add small amount of pumpkin mixture to egg yolks; return to corn meal mixture, stirring vigorously. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Stir small amount of beaten egg whites into corn meal mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg whites. Spoon into 2 at. soufflé dish. Bake for 55 - 60 min. Serve immediately. 6-8 servings. ( This is a very elegant side dish. For the "high hat" effect, run a rubber spatula around the dish ( about 1 inch from the edge and about 1 1/2 inches deep) before baking.)
