Savoury Tenderstem® custards with cheese & basil
Tenderstem® has teamed up with food blog “Delicious From Scratch” to create this irresistible recipe - the perfect dish to impress on a date night.
10 minutes preparation
15 minutes cooking
- 220g Tenderstem®
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 Eggs
- 3 Egg yolks
- 250g Double cream
- 250g Milk
- Large handful of fresh basil leaves
- ½ Teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 80g Cheese of your choice, grated
Sautée the Tenderstem® in a frying pan with the butter.
Line the bottom of a large oven-proof dish (about 30cm round/square) with the Tenderstem®.
Blend all other ingredients except the cheese with a hand blender.
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.
