Quick Asparagus Tart

Flaky puff pastry dough topped with cheese, whole asparagus, fresh garlic, and sesame seeds. So simple and out of this world good. 


  • No yoghurt? Use cream cheese or soured cream. 
  • No blue cheese? Use another cheese such as brie or grated mozzarella.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

Servings: 2


a bunch of Asparagus

1 ready rolled puff pastry

60 g Blue cheese (we used Dolcelatte)

3 tbsp Natural Yoghurt

2 tsp Olive oil

Black pepper

1 Egg yolk

1 tbsp Sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180c fan/6 gas mark. Remove the woody parts of the asparagus then cut them in half lengthwise.
  2. Blanch the asparagus in boiling water for 3 minutes, then drain.
  3. Roll out the puff pastry and cut it in half to create two smaller tarts. Fold the edges towards the centre of the pastry and brush with egg yolk.
  4. In a bowl, mix together the cheese and yoghurt. Spread into each pastry tart and top with the blanched asparagus.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil, season with black pepper and sprinkle sesame seeds on the pastry.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until puffed and golden.
