Summer Veg Flan

Hello Families

For those who don’t know me my name is Mrs Heald

I have worked at BV with children and families for many years

One of my big passions is cooking vegetarian and vegan food from all around the world.

I love making and baking cakes, sweet, treats and goodies. I love a good foodie challenge too.

I enjoy using herbs and spices and I like to make elaborate food but I also love the challenge of making a ‘rustle up meal’ using what ingredients you have left in your fridge at the end of the week. I don’t believe in food waste so I try to be creative and use up whatever I have in my store cupboard and fridge.

 I am going to share a recipe with you that I hope you will enjoy cooking with your children. I thought that this summer recipe is easy to make, inexpensive and fun.
