For this recipe, you can use either fresh or frozen peas. After all the Christmas expenses, cheap recipes are always welcome.
INGREDIENTS - SERVES 6
100g whole cream
6 eggs, separated yolks and egg whites
50grs grated cheese
Salt and pepper
Boil the peas, drain them and process them to obtain a puré.
Preheat the oven to 190º
Combine the flour and the milk in a saucepan and cook the mixture for 10 minutes. Add the peas´puré, the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper.
Add the egg yolks and whisk the egg whites, they should form a stiff peak.
Gently fold them into the mixture with a metal spoon, a few tablespoons at a time, cutting through the mixture with a high movement to incorporate plenty of air.
Butter the cake tin and pour the mixture. Bake it in a Bain-Marie for 45 minutes. I decorated it with some hard-boiled egg.
