asparagus tart

Combining delicate ribbons of fresh asparagus with a delicious cheesy tart filling, this puff pastry delight will win your heart as well as your tastebuds.
  • 3 eggs
  • 105ml milk
  • 75g grated cheese (cheddar or similar)
  • 200g asparagus, trimmed and sliced into ribbons
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C and grease a loose-bottomed tart tin (shape doesn’t really matter, just ensure it’s about four to six-cm deep).
  2. In a bowl or jug, whisk the eggs together. Add the milk and whisk again.
  3. Line the tin with your puff pastry and sprinkle a little grated cheese over the base.
  4. Lay the asparagus into the tin and pour the egg mixture over the top along with the remaining cheese (do this slowly – depending on the size of your tin, you may not need all of the mixture).
  5. Bake the tart for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and golden, and the egg mixture is set.
