Ingredients (serves 8 people)

1. 200g baby spinach

2. 125g (135ml) butter

3. 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

4. 125g (220ml) cake flour

  2. Melt butter over moderate heat in a large pot. Add garlic and fry for 1 minute. Stir flour in. Add milk all at once and whisk well until everything is mixed and the lumps have dissolved.
  3.  Leave to simmer over low heat and whisk slowly while the sauce thickens, about 3-5 minutes.
  4.  Remove from the heat and stir cheese in until melted. Add spinach and mix well. Season well with salt and black pepper. Leave to cool to room temperature.
  5. Heat oven to 180°C. Fold egg yolks into mixture. Whisk egg whites into soft points and fold carefully into the cheese mixture.
Pour entire mixture into an oven proof dish with a volume of 1 litre. Bake for about 70 minutes or until golden brown and congealed. Serve warm with a salad of your choice.
