Pumpkin Flan with Thermomix

Pumpkin Flan with Thermomix

Are you looking for a pumpkin recipe that is nutritious and light? This Thermomix pumpkin flan is for you! Inside, in addition to the pumpkin, there are also egg, parmesan, milk and flour.

I tasted it for the first time several years ago from my mother-in-law. Until then, never having tasted pumpkin. What have I been missing all these years ...

Obviously, I immediately cooked this flan with the Thermomix. I must admit that it took some time to get to the exact flavor and texture of my mother-in-law, who does everything by hand. But, in the end, I did it and I'm very proud of it!

Also because to make this flan I take half the time compared to my mother-in-law who, for example, has to turn the béchamel by hand and has to check that the density is right.;-)

With this Thermomix pumpkin flan I fell in love with pumpkin!

The love continues, so much so that in autumn period I experiment with many recipes with pumpkin. Of these, you may have already read the Pumpkin Pancake, Pumpkin Croquette and the Pumpkin and Pumpkin and Carrot Soup.
