Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 8 min.
Broccoli savoury custard
Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Prepare 400 g broccoli, including the stalk (cut into pieces) as it will be blended.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
Broccoli savoury custard
Boil the broccoli in salted water until just tender.

Drain when cooked.

Stage 3 - 3 min.

Stage 4

...until the mixture is smooth.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Broccoli savoury custard
Pour the mixture into ramekins and stand these in a baking tray or dish, then fill this with boiling water to halfway up the ramekins.

Stage 6 - 20 min.
Broccoli savoury custard
Put this bain-marie in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Stage 7

Check if cooked the same as for a cake.

Stage 8 - 5 min.
Broccoli savoury custard
Turn the custard out onto the serving plate.
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.
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
Home made.
