Equipment

  • Baking Sheet, lined

Ingredients

  • 320 g Puff Pastry ready rolled
  • 20 stems Asparagus woody ends cut off
  • 150 g Vegan Cream Cheese (I like Violife) room temperature
  • 3 Spring Onions sliced into rings
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme fresh
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • Zest of one Lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon Pine Nuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 220c
  • Prep your asparagus by snapping of the ends where it starts to yield. Discard these woody ends (or use them in a soup)
  • To make the cheezy mixture, place the vegan cream cheeze in a bowl and mix with a fork to soften.
  • In a pan, gently heat the olive oil and saute the spring onion and some fresh thyme leaves until softened. Add to the cream cheeze.
  • Add the nutritional yeast, mustard and lemon juice, Mix well, then season to taste.
  • Prep the pastry case. Place your prerolled pastry on your lined baking sheet. You may need to trim it fit if, like me, you're using a smaller sheet.
  • Score the pastry to form a "frame"
  • Spread the cream cheeze mixture within the "frame" of your pastry case, and layer the asparagus in one layer on top.
  • Sprinkle over the pine nuts and lemon zest.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and puffed.
  • Remove from oven and let cool before cutting into squares and serving
