So today I will explain a cheap and super easy everyday’s meal recipe!
Please applause my brocoli flans!
So this happens quite often I must say when I go grocery shopping … I see vegetables that I rarely cook (or shall I say almost never…) and I tell to myself “aww! that’s a great idea! It has been a while”. Well… After it may not always go as planned…
It’s the story of a brocoli bought a while ago, that spent a lot of time (too much maybe) in the fridge and that has a really crappy look now!!
You get it, I couldn’t cook my brocoli the way I usually do since it didn’t look super fresh! but I hate to throw out food! And bam! I had the idea of brocoli flans with what I could keep from my piece of brocoli. Nobody will see a thing, since it will be mixed! (you can keep a few small pieces if you like your flans that way).
What a wonderful idea… My kids like it better this way (I won’t lie!) and it can be a lovely presentation in your plate (I like to serve lovely plates even for our daily meals…).
Talking about presentation, I like to cook my brocoli flans in individual portions. To do so, I use my muffin molds. Of course, you can cook as a whole flan, in such case add 5 minutes of cooking in your oven.
Here, I served my brocoli flan with my delicious salmon teriyaki and white rice, so good!!
A sauce pan to cook the brocoli,
A hand mixer,
A bowl to mix all the ingredients,
And my muffin molds.
Shall we do this?
The recipe, Chef!
- 300 g brocoli
- 2 eggs
- 50 g cream
- 8-10 leaves fresh coriander (optional)
- Nutmeg powder
Wash your brocoli and cut it in pieces.
Cook it in a large volume of salted water for 10-11 minutes (you should be able to insert a knife easily).
Preheat your oven at 180 degrees.
Drain your brocoli pieces, put them in a bowl, add the coriander leaves and mix with your hand mixer.
Add the eggs and cream. Mix.
Add salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Pour in your muffin molds and cook 25 minutes.
