A reader recommended carrot flan after another large CSA carrot pickup. This past week was by far the largest, 10 pounds of mixed carrots! In an attempt to build meals around carrots I decided to give this recipe a shot.
Overall, it was good but I have a few comments. First, my ramekins are 10 oz so I only made 2 large servings. This led to my second comment, it was a little eggy for my taste. I like eggs but there is a limit to the amount I can eat in one sitting. If the serving was smaller I wouldn’t have had an issue, but that’s my personal preference. Also, the reader, Rachel, said she had some issues with the texture. I too had them too. It was a little mealy and I think it’s just the nature of the carrot and the only way to fix that would be to put it through a sieve. Oh and I forgot to butter the dishes so mine didn’t really come out of the dish nicely which is why half of it is covered with salad.
