Home / Recipes / Asparagus Tart

I love asparagus and I love pie, so why not put those two together? This delicious tart will come together in a flash. You’ll be glad you tried it.

Ingredients:

  • Pastry for one pie shell
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 1/3 c. crumbled feta
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. half & half
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme
  • salt & pepper to taste

Method:

  • Prepare your pastry. You can use store bought if that’s what works for you. Place pastry in a tart pan (any shape will do) and blind bake to a golden brown.
  • Let cool.
  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Toss the asparagus in the olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  • Roast the asparagus for about 10 minutes, until done.
  • Turn the oven down to 375F.
  • While the asparagus is cooling, prepare your filling.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the half & half, eggs, thyme, salt, and pepper
  • Arrange the aspargus spears on your pastry shell and sprinkle with feta.
  • Pour the filling over the asparagus and feta and bake for 45-55 minutes, until the custard is set and doesn’t jiggle anymore.

While the tart cools a bit, make a tossed salad of baby greens an crack open a bottle of white.

Enjoy!
