Recipe: Aspargus pastries

Invite spring into your kitchen!

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 bunch (500 g) green asparagus
  • 5 leaves of ‘brick’ or choux pastry
  • 10 slices cured meat e.g. Grisons
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cream
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Coarse salt
  • Five ground peppercorns
  • Small amount of melted butter

 

PREPARATION:

  1. Boil a pan of salted water. Wash the asparagus and remove the tips form the stems.
  2. Boil the asparagus tips for 8 to ten minutes. Drain and place in cool water to stop the cooking and preserve the bright green colour.
  3. Mix the cream with the lemon juice and ground peppercorns.
  4. Take half a leaf of ‘brick’ or choux pastry, place a slice of cured meat on it, then spread with a tablespoon of lemon cream. Put two asparagus tips on and roll carefully to resemble a spring-roll.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180C. Place the pastries on a lined baking tray and brush each one with melted butter. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes. They’re ready!

 

Enjoy your meal!
