Growing up going to the farmers’ market with my grandma, I’m a big fan of eating my vegetables. Veggies of all colors, shapes, and sizes! One that always stood out to me as a kid was asparagus. I thought the shape and texture was so funny, and I would get so excited when we would find the purple variety. While I love a good simple asparagus recipe, there are also some more intricate ones that just hit the spot. My grandma’s homemade asparagus tart is one of them.
The asparagus tart puff pastry recipe I’m going to share today is inspired by her own recipes with asparagus, combining a cheese tart with simple asparagus. All you need is an appetite and a few, easy-to-find ingredients!
What Is An Asparagus Tart?
An asparagus tart is an asparagus recipe that’s made with a crust base (made from puff pastry) and a center filling of asparagus. Asparagus tart puff pastry sounds fancy, but is actually one of my favorite recipes with asparagus!
Is Asparagus Tart Healthy?
The star of this recipe is asparagus. Asparagus are high in a variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and are rich in fiber.  They’re a great addition to a well-balanced diet, and are absolutely healthy! The other highlight ingredient in this asparagus recipe is Super Youth collagen. The addition of collagen not only adds protein (which can help to reduce cravings), but also a myriad of anti-aging benefits. This includes improved skin elasticity, moisture, and texture.  Who knew a tart could be so…beautifying!?
How To Serve Asparagus Tart
Serving an asparagus tart puff pastry is so exciting. I know that sounds a little over the top, but they look so professional, they taste amazing, and everyone is always asking where you got them. Is that not exciting!? I love when people think my party appetizers are store-bought or catered, when in fact I made them. Asparagus tarts look great out on a tray with a variety of toppings. You can follow the recipe as is, or you can garnish with additional herbs, lemon zest, or red chili flakes. The options are endless!
