Ideal as a main dish with green salad, as starter or side, very flavorful and healthy. Same as a quiche with no crust, flan is a classic of French cuisine.
A flan in French cooking is kind of a crustless quiche. No pastry, just an egg, and milk (or cream or vegetal milk) custard and the filling of your choice. You can imagine many flavors with the same base, as you would for a savory tart, except it’s served in the baking dish.
Today is a vegetarian flan with previously pan-fried broccoli and onion and turmeric in the batter. Quick and easy.
This flan can be served as a starter or as a side but I like to eat it for simple lunches with a green salad. Feel free to add other spices. The recipe is with oat milk but a flan batter is usually prepared with milk or cream.
