Asparagus Tart Ingredients
- Sheet store-bought Puff Pastry
- Shredded Mozarella (or your favorite cheese) and Parmesan
- Thin asparagus
- Olive oil
How to Make an Asparagus Tart
Thaw one sheet of puff pastry either overnight in the refrigerator, or on the counter for about an hour.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. While the oven is heating, trim the tough, woody ends from the asparagus and set aside.
Once the pastry is thawed, unfold and roll out the dough lightly until the folding lines disappear.
Transfer the puff pastry and the parchment paper directly to the baking sheet.
Brush the pastry with olive oil, sprinkle half of the Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over the pastry. Then, line up the asparagus over the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and drizzle olive oil over the tart and asparagus.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and the asparagus has cooked.
Garnishing the Asparagus Tart
The garnish takes the tart from delicious to pretty and even more delicious!
Once the tart is baked, season with salt (I prefer sea salt) and freshly ground black pepper. I also like to add a pinch of red pepper flakes, but that if purely optional.
Scatter fresh pea shoots or microgreens over the tart for a flourish of flavor and texture.
