Page 1

Flan di Verdure Ingredients (serves 6) • 800 g mixed vegetables (such as leek, carrot, zucchini, broccoli or cauliflower) • ½ L liquid cream • 4 whole eggs • 4 egg whites • grated parmesan • salt and pepper • 4 T olive oil

Cut the vegetable/s of choice into small pieces, wash and then add to a saucepan with the olive oil and let cook on a medium flame for about 25 minutes. Let cool, then place in a bowl, adding all of the remaining ingredients. With a hand mixer (not beaters) blend all ingredients together. Take small moulds, similar to those you would use for creme caramel, then cover all of the inside with a light coating of melted butter. Fill the moulds to about ¾ with the mixture. Place the moulds in a baking dish filled to about ¾ with water. This creates a bainmarie. Place carefully in the oven to cook at 160°C for 40 minutes. ** A mix of any available vegetables can be used for this recipe. ** ** To make a flan of multicoloured layers, cook and mix the different types of vegetables separately, as above. When filling the moulds, just alternate the different coloured vegetables.**
