To encourage you to add more of this succulent spring vegetable to your diet, I came up with this tasty little tart recipe! Ideal for brunch, lunch or a light supper with a side salad, I recommend doubling the recipe.
Makes one large or two smaller sized tarts.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Roll out puff pastry to a size to fit your tart pan. Spray your tart pan with a little non-stick spray. Lay your puff pastry in the tart pan and tuck in the edges.
Add margarine to a preheated non-stick frying pan. Add onion, chopped mushrooms, asparagus, garlic and herbs de Provence and sauté on medium heat until the vegetables soften (about 10 minutes). Deglaze the pan by adding wine and mixing well until most of the liquid has evaporated.
Turn the heat down to low and add Zengarry Garlic and Fine Herbs Cashew Cheese and salt. Mix well and remove from heat.
Spread your cheese mixture into the puff pastry shell and garnish with reserved asparagus spears cut in half lengthwise and mushroom slices.
Brush the top of pastry and tart with a bit of melted margarine and bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting.
