We are finally starting to see some local Quebec asparagus pop up at the market, which means that spring is here (even if the weather gods didn't get the memo and sent snow our way this morning).
I am so excited to be collaborating with Produce Made Simple again, which gave me the opportunity to share another savoury baked recipe with you. Baked goods do not always have to be all about the sugar. You can make savoury muffins with cold cuts or chili cheddar cornbreads, savoury loaf cakes with date and chorizo, cheddar biscuits, scones with cheese, Baking with savoury ingredients opens up a whole world of possibilities. Even beautiful asparagus phyllo tart recipe on the tarts!
Now, I realize that not everybody has the time to make a dough for a savoury tart from scratch, so to make this recipe a little simple, I opted to use phyllo dough instead of a homemade dough. Phyllo is a delicate, paper thin sheet of dough that you can smear with butter and stack to create a base for pies, tarts, and all kinds of fun hors-d'oeuvres. Using phyllo for this tart yields a crisp, flaky, buttery base that is the perfect canvas to display long stalks of vibrant green spring asparagus.
When I pick asparagus at the market, I like to go for the bunches with asparagus stalks that aren't overly thick because I find thinner asparagus is more tender and a little less stringy when cooked.
To find the recipe for this asparagus tart, visit the asparagus phyllo tart recipe on the Produce Made Simple website. The Produce Made Simple website is packed full of information on fresh produce with lots of recipe inspiration, so be sure to stick around!
