I like the concept of this and the flavor is pretty good. They are fun to make. I used chicken broth instead of veggie stock. I peeled my turnips because the skin is bitter ( I learned that with other turnip recipes that I have made) I used 3 eggs instead of egg substitute. I had to bake mine for 40 minutes probably because of my change in the eggs. I will definitely try these again with the egg substitute and maybe some of the oranges actually blended in with the custard to give it more orange flavor. Thanks for posting!!
