After Day Three's Kromeskies adventure, it was time for something a bit less greasy. Something with vegetables for the penultimate meal.
That being said, this was a disaster.
In the UK, a flan either a sponge or pastry base filled with either something sweet or savoury. This is not a flan. It's mashed potato (with egg yolks...) piped around the edge of a plate and then filled with vegetables that have had Jesus boiled out of them in stock with curry powder.
Jim has a nasty cold at this point of the week (Kromesky induced sickness?). He ate a plate of it and said it was ok. Suppose, I'd only advise this one if you also don't have a sense of taste. A 50s attempt at vegetarianism.
Bland. So bland. Pretty much just potatoes and boiled vegetables.
Pretty easy, you do need to pipe potato though.
No. It was not a flan. It was lie.

How not to make a flan.
I didn't make any alterations apart from not having a heatproof plate large enough to make it on. Went for a baking sheet and some greaseproof. Even stuck to the true quantities of prepping 2.5lb of vegetables for the filling.
Score (out of 10)?
Low. Can I give a zero? 1. Never again.
