Tomato Flan with Avocado

Total time: 35 minutes
    These simple flans have the look and consistency of a soufflé without the work.  Combine them with a sliced avocado and a bit of creamy dressing for a colorful first course.

Broccoli with Garlic Chips  

Total time: 25 minutes  
    Fry the garlic until it is a lovely golden brown.  The little chips are very tasty; not at all sharp like raw garlic, but not creamy like roasted.  If you prefer less garlic, just use the flavored oil - and let someone else munch on the chips.
