 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       tb           Parmesan cheese -- grated
    2       md           Beets -- cooked and peeled
    2       tb           Butter
    2       tb           Flour
      3/4   c            Chicken broth -- hot
    1       c            Beet greens -- sauteed
      1/2   c            Cheddar cheese -- grated
    3                    Egg yolks
    4                    Egg whites
   Butter a 1 qt. souffle dish; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Slice the
   cooked beets and line the bottom of the souffle dish with them.
   In a small saucepan, melt the butter, stir in the flour, add the hot
   broth and continue to cook until slightly thickened, then transfer to
   a larger bowl.  Coarsely chop beet greens and add to the sauce along
   with Cheddar cheese.
   In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks; blend them with beet green
   mixture. Beat egg whites until they form peaks.  Fold into bowl with
   other ingredients; blend well.  Transfer all to buttered souffle
   dish.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
   Bake at 350 F. for 30 minutes, or until souffle is puffed and golden.
   Ogden writes: “This may be one of the most exceptional souffles you'll
   ever serve.  The beet color spreads upward from the bottom layer,
   creating a rosy hue throughout.”
