Spinach Flans

Time: 45 mins
Effort: Medium

1 lb fresh leaf spinach, coarsely chopped
2 cups water for boiling
2 egg yolks beaten
salt & pepper to taste
pinch of garlic powder 
1 tsp olive oil

Heat oven to 395o. In a medium saucepan bring water to boil and add spinach. Boil for no more than 3-5 minutes then strain. With your hands squeeze out as much of the water in the boiled spinach as you can. Return the spinach to the saucepan you used and add seasoning and egg mixture. Blend well and simmer on low for approx. 5 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lightly brush the insides of two small ring molds with olive oil. Place the molds on the baking sheet and fill them generously with spinach mixture. Bake for approx. 25 minutes until they are firm to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Gently remove ring mold by pulling upwards. These can be served hot or cold.
