20g pack fresh dill, chopped

Sit the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, then remove the beans and parchment and return to the oven. Lower the heat to 180ºC, gas mark 4, and cook for a further 10 minutes until pale golden.

2.Beat together the milk, cream and eggs until well blended. Stir in the dill.

4.Leave to sit in the tin for 10 minutes then carefully lift out, cut into slices and serve with watercress, butterbean and sweet onion salad (below).
