  • Summary

    Sformati, a molded Italian egg dish, are something like a soufflé: light and soft, but not as airy, and can be sweet or savory. They often have a bechamel sauce as a base, but here is an example using creamy-soft cauliflower and ricotta and fontina cheeses. Served with lemony arugula or watercress, it makes a light, lively starter for a dark winter’s evening.

    Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 cup minced onion
    • 2 cups (1/2-inch) cauliflower florets
    • 1 cup chicken stock
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 cup ricotta cheese
    • 1 cup grated fontina
    • 4 eggs, beaten
    • 4 cups arugula or watercress
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons Lemon–Olive Oil Dressing
