Did you know that asparagus are native from the Mediterranean? Fortunately for us (and to our tastebuds’ delight), Quebec is also a big asparagus producer! So, here is the best recipe to make with our local asparagus. Quick! The asparagus season only lasts a few weeks.
SIMPLY DELICIOUS: Do you love this vegetable so much that you would eat it for breakfast too? Well, we may just have your dream recipe: a rustic asparagus pie. YUM!
Bunch of asparagus
Salt and pepper
Homemade or shop-bought puff pastry
Egg, lightly beaten
Parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 200 ºC (400 ºF). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Snap off the tough bottom part of the asparagus stems (about 3 cm / 1″).
In a shallow dish, gently toss the asparagus with the olive oil, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Then, cut the dough in long strips of about 2 cm x 20 cm (0.5″ x 7″). Roll one strip around each asparagus.
Baste the asparagus spirals with the beaten egg and garnish with parmesan cheese.
Finally, cook in the oven for 10 minutes or until the dough is golden.
For a vegan version of this dish, substitute the parmesan cheese with nutritional yeast and make sure the puff pastry you use is vegan.
