Tip the spinach into a food processor and add the egg yolks, 1 tbsp fromage frais, plenty of seasoning and the flour. Blend until really finely chopped and well mixed.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold into the spinach mixture. Spread in the tin and bake for 12-15 mins until firm to the touch. 3 Meanwhile, beat the rest of the fromage frais into the Boursin until creamy. Put a sheet of baking paper on the work surface and dust with a little of the vegetarian parmesan.
