Another option to eat asparagus in simple way is by stuff it in puff pastry. About 30 minutes include preparation. Asparagus Pastry for party snack or just enjoy it with a cup of hot drink.
In fact this is nostalgic for me, tried to make this when I was small girl. Have nothing experience about baking. At that time my mother still use conventional oven over the stove.
And now I want to make it again with really simple steps. I make this snack in the same day with asparagus for breakfast in my last post.
- green asparagus, the number is up to you, clean and cut the hard end
- red radish, if you like, slice
- salt and pepper
- frozen puff pastry, the number is up to you (I use the square-cut).
- 1 egg, beaten
Thaw frozen puff pastry for 10 minutes. Preheat oven at 225 C
Line puff pastries sheets (I line them on chopping block ), then brush with egg wash.
Place green asparagus and radish in the middle of the pastry diagonal direction, season with salt and pepper.
Bring two opposite corner of square pastry together and seal with egg wash.
Place in baking sheet on parchment paper.
Brush all the surface with egg wash. Season again with freshly crack black pepper.
Bake at 225 C preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.
I enjoy it with a cup of hot coffee. Just so simple.
And that pretty elephant on the cup ? I love it !
