Sformato di Porri Leek Flan Ingredients (serves 4) • 75 g of flour • ¾ L of milk • 75 g butter • 3-4 leeks • 4 eggs • salt and pepper • extra virgin olive oil

Cut the ends of the leeks, discarding the green ends. Slice the leeks into thin rings. Heat oil in a skillet and saute the leeks until cooked but not brown. Now make a bechamel sauce. Over a low heat melt the butter, add the flour and mix with a whisk, keep stirring in the same direction, add the milk slowly and keep stirring. The mixture will become thick and smooth. In a food mixer, mix the leeks then stir them into the bechiamel sauce with 4 eggs until you obtain a smooth mixture. Place the mixture into moulds and then prepare a bain-marie. In a preheated moderate oven (150°C), cook for 20-30 minutes. ** You can replace the leeks with zucchini, parmesan, carrots, pumpkin, or other vegetables **
