Recipe:

Preheat oven to 425 F

Here’s what you need:

Puff pastry (you can use store bought), roll out into a rectangle and place on parchment lined sheet.

1 bunch of asparagus, rinsed and bottoms trimmed, (then cut into half). 
*Cutting the asparagus stalks in half makes it easier to cut the tart once it is baked, as they can be quite fibrous. 

2 garlic cloves, crushed

300g goats cheese (Chèvre)

Olive oil, fresh pepper and maldon salt or fleur de sel

Sprigs of fresh thyme

In a small bowl combine the goats cheese and the garlic and then spread a thin layer on top of the puff pastry.

Arrange the asparagus side by side,  lengthwise (as in the picture) on top of the goat cheese and
sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme. Add the rest of the goats cheese on top (in small dallops) and drizzle with olive oil.

Bake approx 30 min until puff pastry has risen and golden brown. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Stephanie, no, I haven’t. But I’d be curious to see how it comes out. The puff pastry should be golden and puffed as you can see in the photo. Maybe 20 min? 2 Let me know if you try it! 🙂
