If you are looking for a new way to spice up your traditional flan recipe, just keep reading. In my opinion, there’s no tastier or easier dessert to make than flan. And what I love about it so much is that it’s very versatile. A few days ago I decided to try it with quinoa and the result was great. Most of the quinoa stayed at the top of the flan adding an irresistible texture. Try it! MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • 2
    Melt sugar in a medium-sized pot on medium heat. Stir continuously until the sugar melts and turns a golden color. Transfer this caramel to your flan mold and gently move the mold so the caramel covers the bottom and sides. Let it cool completely.
  • 3
    Add the rest of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour this mixture into the prepared flan mold and cover.
  • 4
    Bake in a water bath for 50-60 minutes or until the flan looks like it has set. Let cool completely.
  • 5
    To remove from mold, run a knife along the sides of the mold and turn it upside down over a plate.

    Serve and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • To make it easier to remove from mold, refrigerate flan for 1 hour so it can be firmer.
