Description

Asparagus, Gruyère, and flavors of thyme are baked into a buttery puff pastry.  Asparagus puff pastry is a great recipe for a simple lunch or dinner and perfect for entertaining.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 8 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/204°C.  Line two large baking sheet pans with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  2. In a large dish, toss the aspargus, olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper until evenly mixed.
  3. Working with one sheet of puff pastry at a time, on a lightly floured worksurface, roll each puff pastry sheet to a 12-inch (30 cm) square.  Cut each square into 4 squares.  Divide the Gruyère between the 8 squares, arranging it at a diagonal from one corner to another.  Dividing into 8 portions, lay the asparagus across the cheese.  Take the opposite two corners and bring together to wrap over asparagus.  Brush with a bit of egg to seal the excess flap.
  4. Carefully transfer each asparagus puff pastry to the prepared baking sheet pans.  Brush each pastry with the egg and transfer the pan to the preheated oven.  Bake one tray at a time for 20-25 or until golden brown.
  5. Allow the pastries to cool slightly and serve warm.
