Awesome, looks impressive and is actually very easy to make. Here’s how (serves 4)
- 3 eggs beaten
- Pack of puff pastry sheet
Heat the oven to 180C. Unroll the pastry sheet, leaving it on its parchment. Put it on a baking tray. With a sharp knife score around the pastry sheet about 2cm the edge so it looks like a picture frame. Stab the inside if the frame with a fork or knife. Brush with beaten egg all over, but keep the rest of the egg, you will need it later. Bake 15 minutes. Remove and cool. Actually you don’t really have to let it cool, I didn’t. You may need to squash down the middle a bit if the whole thing has turned into a pillow.
- A bunch of asparagus
Boil for 2 minutes, then plunge into cold water to blanch then set aside
- 50ml creme fraiche
- 50g grated cheese
Mix these with your remaining egg
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 lemon zested
Mix with your asparagus
- 50g goats cheese or similar, cubed
Pour the egg and cheese mixture onto the centre of your pastry frame and spread out. Lay out the asparagus artistically, then dot with the goats cheese. Cook at 180C for another 15-20 minutes until set and golden.
Great with a salad for lunch!
