Herbed Goat Cheese Flan

_MG_5216

Ok, so I didn’t get a picture right when these little babies came out of the oven and were nice and puffed up, but oh my goodness they were so pretty!

I literally shrieked with excitement once they came out because I’ve never done anything like this before!

Oh, and they taste divine as well.

You will need:

  • 1 1/2 c almond milk
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 1 T thyme
  • 1 2-inch spring fresh rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • grapeseed oil spray

Bring milk, garlic, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaf to a simmer in a medium saucepan.

Remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 15 minutes.

Strain into a blender, and discard the solids.

Add goat cheese, eggs, egg yolks, and salt, and blend on low until creamy…NOT FROTHY.

Preheat oven to 350.

Spray the grapeseed oil in 6 4-oz. ramekins and place in a shallow baking dish.

Pour goat cheese mixture into each ramekin.

Place baking dish in the oven and fill it halfway with hot water.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until flans are set (mine were a nice golden brown).

Honestly, I this is even the “messed up” version according to the original recipe, but it worked for me, so hopefully yours will turn out lovely as well!
