A Delicious 5 star plus recipe. I made this for lunch today. Easy to make. Next time I am going to save some of the Asparagus (Cooked & chopped)to add to the mixture to give a different texture.I added dried tarragon to the egg mixture. I also sauted the asparagus tips in a little olive & garlic before adding to top of flan. I baked the flan in a pie plate instead of the ramkins. baked 30 minutes. Thank you Chia for another yummy recipe.
