INGREDIENTS

  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 ml milk

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Rinse the peppers under running water. Cut them in half lengthwise and remove seeds and stems, then cut them into strips. Chop each strip in small pieces. Add them to a bowl with 2 tablespoons of water, cover with plastic wrap and cook in the microwave oven until tender (about 6-8 minutes).
  • Drain the water from the peppers. Then blend the peppers with the eggs and the milk, until creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Drain the water from the zucchini and blend until obtaining a smooth cream. You can add a little of milk. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the zucchini cream on a plate, turn the ramekin upside down and carefully lay the flan on the cream. Finish with a drizzle of EVO oil and fresh ground peppers. Serve cool or warm.
