We offer you a classic spinach flan to make now that it is their season, and they are fresh and at a reasonable price, in fact spinach is one of the vegetables of the Winter. You can serve this spinach flan as a refined side dish for roast meats, or as a first course pairing it with tomato sauce or meat sauce, or as a main dish by serving it with a veal stew perhaps enriched with mushrooms. This flan should be cooked in a bain-marie in the oven, but we also experimented with the microwave, with a good result.
