Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Cream Flan for Shavuot

Roasted Red Pepper & Basic Cream Flan for Shavuot

What a treat I have for you today! If you’re wondering what to make for Shavuot — and want something visually and culinarily impressive, then you must try this Roasted Red Pepper Flan from May I Have That Recipe.

A huge thank you to you, Mara for inviting us to be a guest on your blog. It is truly an honor!

Anyone who knows us, knows that we absolutely love cheese.  There is something very comforting about it. As far as we’re concerned, there’s nothing better than a plain piece of crunchy bread with a good piece of sharp cheese, some fresh tomato slices and a drizzle of good extra virgin olive oil.

And with Shavuot right around the corner, we have already been thinking about all the great cheese creations that we will be serving for dinner!

Every year, our kids request Safta’s (our grandmother) cheese borekas, home made, buttery dough filled with cheese and egg. They are so amazingly delicious, we can never make enough of them!

Since they probably won’t make it the dinner table, we decided to come up with another appetizer. Something light and creamy, that would pair well with a fresh salad…. Like this roasted pepper and basil cream flan.

It’s light, it’s airy, it’s creamy and looks decadent and elegant, almost as if it was created at a fancy restaurant…

And the best part is, it can be made 1 -2 days ahead of time and served cold or warm. If you’ve never had a savory flan, go ahead, give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.

We are two Sephardic sisters, Vicky and Ruth, raised in Barcelona, Spain with Middle Eastern roots. We grew up eating the best, most flavorful, comforting home-cooked meals prepared by our mom, who taught us everything we know about cooking. When we moved here to the U.S. we felt it was really important to keep our traditions and background alive, and we’ve done so by sharing it with everyone we’ve met throughout the years. After all, what better way to make new friends and share our love and culture than through food, right? Our friends have come to enjoy our food and gatherings so much that are always asking us for our recipes. That inspired us to start our cooking blog May I Have That Recipe, where we share recipes we’ve created through the inspiration of our multicultural background. Our cooking is seasonal, bold, full of flavor and mouth-watering.  We feature classic Middle Eastern recipes with a twist, seasonal Mediterranean recipes and much more.
