Asparagus flan

Serves 6
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes

"A wonderful light and moreish flan that is a winner! Especially great to serve for lunch! Delightful, easy to make with pastry you press in a dish rather than roll out. It reflects New Zealand ingenuity in producing great food with minimal effort."
