Asparagus Blue Cheese Tart

Ingredients

Servings

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 140g (5oz) goat cheese, softened
  • 125g (4.5oz) blue cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tbsp 2% milk
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 bunch Ontario-grown asparagus, ends removed
  • Additional blue cheese, for sprinkling
  • 2 tbsp honey, for drizzling
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup microgreens, for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. Step 2

    In a bowl whisk to combine the garlic, goat cheese, blue cheese, milk, and egg yolks. Chill the mixture until ready to use.
  3. Step 3

    On a floured surface roll the puff pastry out to a rectangle measuring 12×16”. Transfer the pastry to the baking sheet and trim the edges. Chill for 20 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    When the pastry is done chilling, crack the egg into a bowl and beat it with a fork. Brush the pastry all over with the egg wash avoiding the edges.
  5. Step 5

    Spread the blue cheese mixture in the center of the pastry, leaving a 1-inch boarder on all sides. Arrange the asparagus on top and transfer to the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes, rotating the pan once halfway through.
  6. Step 6

    Take the tart out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Garnish with crumbled blue cheese, a drizzle of honey, crushed red pepper flakes, and microgreens. Slice and serve immediately.
