Remarks:

This custard is delicious on its own but with meat in a sauce, such as two-stage beef chuck, it is a mouth-watering alternative to potatoes.

Do take care not to overcook the broccoli. To ensure that it stays beautifully green, stop the cooking as soon as it is just tender. The same goes for the custard, which will dry out if cooked too long.
