How to make a wild garlic and nettle flan
This is the final video I made recently about cooking with wild garlic and nettles. This is a very basic recipe.
Make shortcrust pastry (plain or self-raising flour, half the weight of flour as fat and a bit of water to bind it). Roll out and put into a flan dish. Chop some wild garlic leaves and add to the flan dish along with some small, young nettle leaves. Pour over some beaten egg, covering all the leaves. Then bake in an oven for about 15-20 min until the egg is golden brown.
