  1. Sautée the Tenderstem® in a frying pan with the butter.
  2. Line the bottom of a large oven-proof dish (about 30cm round/square) with the Tenderstem®.
  3. Blend all other ingredients except the cheese with a hand blender.
  4. Sprinkle the cheese over the Tenderstem® and pour over the custard. Carefully transfer to the oven and bake, turning regularly so it bakes evenly, until the centre is just set - it should still have plenty of jiggle when you shake it gently - as it will firm up further as it cools.
