  • 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
  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.
