Simple Garlic Flan Cooking Recipes

Garlic Flan

The secret to this delicious flan which cooking with garlic is to season it very well with salt and pepper. Serve the hot custard, cut into wedges with roast beef, lamb or pork loin, or with grilled pork tenderloin.

Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • 1 large head garlic, separated into cloves, boiled in water to cover for 5 minutes, drained and peeled.

  • 1.5 cups well flavored chicken stock

  • Butter

  • 2 cups milk or half and half, heated just until bubbles appear around the edges of the pan, cooled slightly

  • 2 whole large eggs

  • 4 large egg yolks

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • Fresh parsley sprigs

  1. In a medium size saucepan, combine the garlic with the stock. Cooking the garlic and stock over low heat, until very soft, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the stock for making garlic flavored sauces. Puree the garlic in a small food processor or herb grinder or in a mortar with a pestle.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Generously butter a 1 quart flan mold or an 8 inch cake tin.

  3. In a medium size bowl, beat together the eggs and the egg yolks until they are very light in color. Beat in about 1/2 cup of the hot milk, and then beat this egg mixture into the remaining milk. Simmer over very low heat, stirring, until the mixture just coasts the back of a spoon, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and strain the mixture through a sieve into the same bowl that held the eggs. Beat in the garlic puree and season well with salt and pepper. Stir in the chopped parsley.

  4. Pour the flan mixture into the prepared mold. Set the mold into a larger shallow baking pan. Pour enough boiling water into the baking pan to reach halfway up the outside of the mold. Bake until the flan is set in the middle and a sharp knife inserted in the custard comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven.

  5. Take the mold out of the water bath and let it stand for 5 minutes. Run a knife carefully around the inside edge of the mold and invert the flan onto a heated serving plate. Server this simple cooking with garlic recipes very hot, garnished with the parsley sprigs.

Tips: Moisten the serving late very slightly before unfolding the flan. This will allow you to shift the flan if it isn't well centered.
