Cauliflower and Broccoli Flan Recipes

Ingredients :


pinch of salt

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp dried thyme

75g margarine

3 tbsp water


100g cauliflower florets

100g broccoli florets

1 onion, cut into eight

25g butter or margarine

1 tbsp plain flour

6 tbsp vegetable stock

125ml milk

75g grated Cheddar cheese

salt and pepper

paprika, to garnish

Method :

To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Add the paprika and thyme and rub in the margarine. Stir in the water and bind to form a dough. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface and use to line an 18cm loose based flan tin. Prick the base with a fork and line with baking parchment. Fill with baking beans and bake in a preheated oven, 375F/Gas 5 for 15 minutes. Remove the parchment and beans and return the pastry cake to the oven for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the filling. Cook the cauliflower, broccoli and onion in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 10-12 minutes, until tender. Drain and reserve. Melt the butter in a pan. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the stock and milk and return to the heat. Bring to the boil, stirring and add 50g of the cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spoon the cauliflower, broccoli and onion into the pastry case. Pour over the sauce and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling. Dust with paprika and serve. This tasty flan takes a short time to cook if you make pastry cases in advance and keep them frozen until required.
