Guess what spring brings??? No clue?...Purple asparagus!!!
I know I know. WHO would get excited about asparagus? RIGHT here friends! Spring brings a plethora of fun, unique produce you can only find for a couple months out of the year, so time to take advantage of it! And I think you're going to like this one, there's brie and puff pastry involved. Ergo, Spring Asparagus Brie Tart!
An easy, quick recipe you can whip up in just 30 minutes! Great for that last minute get together when you need a savory appetizer to tide everyone over till dinner. It's filling enough to keep everyone happy but not too much so that there's still room for your snazzy entree.
That Brie though. I know this Spring Asparagus Brie Tart is supposed to be about the asparagus....but I'm all about that brie. And this has a whole wedge of it. And it's aweeesome. Whisked with an egg and some freshly grated parmesan, it melts up into the perfect cheesy custard-esque base for the asparagus. Paired with the fluffy, light, crispy puff pastry? Yes please!
We should probably talk about the Asparagus in this Spring Asparagus Brie Tart. I used both purple and green asparagus to create a nice color contrast, topped with some fresh herbs and parmesan cheese. Favorite part about this recipe (other than the brie of course)? No need to blanch the asparagus!!! Just trim the woody ends, place them on the brie layer, top with cheese and bake! Don't even have to toss them in olive oil. Ahh easy convenience.
So grab some purple asparagus and enjoy the springtime while you can!Print
