ASPARAGUS CUSTARD TART



Asparagus Custard Tart image

This tart is unapologetically rich-there is puff pastry, Gruyere, goat cheese, and cream-yet the overall effect is one of lightness. It's a handy make-ahead addition to a festive spring brunch spread, but paired with a green salad, it also makes a satisfying supper on its own.

Time 3h

Yield Makes one 9-inch tart

Number Of Ingredients 9

1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce package), thawed
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
Coarse salt
1 pound asparagus, trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces, stalks and tips kept separate
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 ounces Gruyere cheese, finely shredded (1/2 cup)
2 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled into large pieces (1/2 cup)

Steps:

  • Roll out puff pastry into a 14-inch square on a lightly floured surface; cut into a 13-inch round with a paring knife (use a bowl or a plate as a template). Transfer to a 9-inch round baking dish or a 5 1/2-to-6-cup deep-dish pie plate. Prick all over with a fork. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line tart shell with parchment and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Place on a baking sheet and bake until edges turn pale golden brown, about 40 minutes. Remove crust from oven and remove pie weights and parchment. Return crust to oven and bake until bottom is dry and golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes more. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons salt. Add asparagus stalks and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water; when cool, transfer to a plate and pat dry. Add asparagus tips to boiling water and cook 30 seconds. Drain and transfer to ice water; drain when cool. Pat tips dry and toss with oil in a bowl. Transfer stalks to a blender. Add eggs, cream, flour, and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt to blender and puree until very smooth.
  • Pour custard into crust. Sprinkle with Gruyere and goat cheese and top with asparagus tips. Bake until edges of custard are puffed, top is golden brown, and center is set, about 40 minutes. (Tent with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning.) Let cool on a wire rack 15 minutes before serving.

Yield Makes 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 17

For pastry
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large egg, lightly beaten
For filling
1 medium leek (white and pale green parts only), quartered lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/3-inch pieces
1 lb medium asparagus, trimmed
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/3 cups heavy cream
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon
2 teaspoons water
Special Equipment
parchment paper; a 9 1/4-inch flan ring* (see cooks' note, below)

Steps:

  • Make pastry:
  • Blend together flour, salt, and butter in a bowl with your fingertips or a pastry blender (or pulse in a food processor) until most of mixture resembles coarse meal with some small (roughly pea-size) butter lumps. Drizzle evenly with egg and gently stir with a fork (or pulse in processor) just until a dough forms.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 4 portions. With heel of your hand, smear each portion once or twice in a forward motion to help distribute fat. Gather dough into a ball, then flatten into a 5-inch disk. Chill dough, wrapped in plastic wrap, until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  • Make filling while pastry chills:
  • Wash leek in a bowl of cold water, agitating water, then lift out leek and pat dry.
  • Cook asparagus in a wide 4- to 5-quart pot of boiling salted water , uncovered, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer asparagus with tongs to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking, then drain and pat dry. Cut off and reserve tips (leave more stalk if asparagus is thin), then thinly slice stalks crosswise.
  • Heat butter in a 10- to 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately low heat until foam subsides, then cook leek with 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in sliced asparagus and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and remove from heat.
  • Finish filling and assemble and bake tart:
  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put flan ring in center of baking sheet. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin into an 11-inch round, then fit dough inside flan ring, pressing dough against bottom edge and side of ring. Run rolling pin over top edge of ring to cut off excess dough.
  • Whisk together cream, 2 eggs, tarragon, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Lightly beat remaining egg with water in a small bowl and brush tart shell all over with some egg wash. Spoon asparagus mixture into shell, spreading evenly, then pour cream mixture over asparagus.
  • Bake tart until filling is just beginning to set but still loose on top, 20 to 25 minutes. Scatter asparagus tips over top, pressing lightly if necessary to help them settle into filling, then continue to bake until custard is golden and just set but still slightly wobbly in center, about 30 minutes more (custard will continue to set as it cools).
  • Cool tart on baking sheet on a rack until warm, about 30 minutes. Loosen edge with a small sharp knife, then lift off flan ring. Serve warm or at room temperature, cut into wedges.

CHEF JOHN'S ASPARAGUS TART



Chef John's Asparagus Tart image

As long as you're pretty good at making rectangles, and trimming things to the right length, this recipe is a breeze. By the way, I'll give the specific ingredient amounts I used here, but this really depends on how much asparagus you have, and how long you want your tart to be.

Provided by Chef John

Categories     Appetizers and Snacks     Pastries

Time 40m

Yield 1

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 6x9-inch sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
6 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 ½ teaspoons creme fraiche
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or to taste

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
  • Lay puff pastry out on the prepared baking sheet. Fold edges up to create a 1/2-inch wide border. Prick inside base of dough completely with a fork.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and puffed, about 10 minutes. Press puffed center down with the back of a fork to deflate.
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook uncovered until bright green, about 1 minute. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes until cold to stop the cooking process. Drain.
  • Stir mustard, creme fraiche, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl; spread into the bottom of the cooled tart shell. Lay asparagus spears, trimming as necessary to fit the tart shell, in the center of the tart on top of the mustard spread. Brush melted butter over the asparagus and crust and sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over the top.
  • Bake in the oven until pastry is browned and asparagus is tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

ASPARAGUS, LEEK & GRUYERE TART IN TARRAGON SAVORY CUSTARD



Asparagus, Leek & Gruyere Tart in Tarragon Savory Custard image

Excellent recipe for brunch, also makes great leftovers and freezes well. Tastes delicious warm or at room temperature. I have also lightened the recipe at times by omitting the Gruyere cheese completely and also gotten excellent results with the same cooking time. The pie crust is worth the effort to make from scratch, although a pre-made puff pastry crust may also be used to cut prep time. The recipe was given to me by a friend, which I then modified.

ASPARAGUS AND CHEESE TART



Asparagus and Cheese Tart image

Provided by Food Network Kitchen

Time 50m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 pound asparagus, trimmed
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (about 1/2 pound), thawed
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 cup grated fontina cheese (about 3 ounces)
1 cup grated comte or gruyere cheese (about 3 ounces)
1 tablespoon minced shallot
2 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons whole milk
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Steps:

  • Fill a large bowl with ice water. Bring about 1 inch of water to a boil in a large skillet. Add the asparagus; cook until bright green and crisp-tender, 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Drain and transfer to the ice water to stop the cooking; drain and pat dry. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Roll out the puff pastry into a 10-by-16-inch rectangle on a floured surface. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Bake until light golden brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheet.
  • Meanwhile, mix the fontina, comte, shallot, egg yolks, milk, nutmeg and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a bowl until combined. Spread the cheese mixture evenly over the puff pastry, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Toss the asparagus with the olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Arrange the asparagus on the tart and bake until the cheese mixture is slightly puffy, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the lemon zest. Serve warm or at room temperature.

CHEESY ASPARAGUS TART

Provided by Ree Drummond : Food Network

Time 1h10m

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

4 tablespoons salted butter
2 large leeks, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
One 14-ounce package refrigerated rolled pie dough (2 crusts)
2 cups grated fontina cheese
1 cup ricotta
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
12 ounces asparagus, trimmed and chopped into 1-inch pieces
1 large egg

Steps:

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the leeks, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown around the edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Unroll the two pie crusts and lay on a sheet pan so that the pieces overlap slightly. Trim the edges of the pastry where it rides up the sides of the sheet pan and press these trimmings into the bare areas so that you are left with a 10-by-16-inch pastry rectangle.
  • Sprinkle over the fontina, leaving a 1-inch border, then top with the leeks. Dollop on the ricotta. Scatter the thyme and asparagus pieces over the ricotta and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold the uncovered pastry edge inwards to make a 1/2-inch border all the way around the tart, in the style of a galette.
  • Whisk the egg with a splash of water in a small bowl. Brush it all around the pastry edge.
  • Bake the tart until it is a deep golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. (If the crust is browning too fast, reduce the heat to 425 degrees F.)
  • Remove the tart from the oven, then allow it to sit for 5 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve.

ASPARAGUS, GOAT CHEESE AND TARRAGON TART



Asparagus, Goat Cheese and Tarragon Tart image

Because you don't have to make your own crust, this gorgeous asparagus-striped tart is so easy it almost feels like cheating. But it's not. It's just simple yet stunning, effortlessly chic and company-ready. As there are so few ingredients in this recipe that each one makes an impact, be sure to buy a good all-butter brand of puff pastry. If you can manage to serve this tart warm, within an hour of baking, it will be at its absolute best, with crisp pastry that shatters into buttery bits when you bite down and still-runny cheese. But it's also excellent a few hours later, should you want to get all your baking done before your guests arrive. If tarragon isn't your favorite herb, you can use chives, basil or mint instead. And if you can manage to trim all the asparagus to the same length, this tart will be especially neat and orderly looking.

Categories     weekday, pies and tarts, appetizer

Time 1h

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 cup goat cheese, at room temperature (4 ounces)
1 large egg, lightly beaten, at room temperature
1 large garlic clove, finely grated or minced
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves, plus more for serving
1/2 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup crème fraîche, at room temperature (8 ounces)
All-purpose flour, for dusting the work surface
1 sheet or square all-butter puff pastry, thawed if frozen (about 9 to 14 ounces; brands vary)
8 ounces thin asparagus, woody ends trimmed
Extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Freshly ground black pepper
Red-pepper flakes (optional)
1 1/2 ounces Parmesan, shaved with a vegetable peeler (about 1/2 cup)

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, use a fork or a wooden spoon to mash together the goat cheese, egg, garlic, tarragon, lemon zest, salt and nutmeg until smooth. Switch to a whisk and beat in the crème fraîche until smooth.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry into a 13-by-11-inch rectangle about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer the dough to a parchment-lined cookie sheet. With a sharp knife, lightly score a 1/2-inch border around the edges of the puff pastry.
  • Spread the crème fraîche mixture evenly inside the scored border. Line up the asparagus spears on top, and brush them with olive oil. Sprinkle some salt and the grated Parmesan over the asparagus.
  • Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Let it cool on the cookie sheet for at least 15 minutes or up to 4 hours before serving. Then sprinkle black pepper, red-pepper flakes (if using), the shaved Parmesan and tarragon leaves. Drizzle a little oil on top.

ASPARAGUS TART



Asparagus Tart image

Provided by Florence Fabricant

Categories     dinner, appetizer

Time 1h35m

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

Unbaked pastry for a 9-inch tart shell
2 tablespoons sweet butter
1/4 cup chopped onions
4 to 5 medium asparagus spears
1 tablespoon minced chives
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups half and half
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out pastry, line tart pan with the pastry and cover the pastry with foil. Weigh down with dry beans or pastry weights. Place in the oven and bake 10 to 12 minutes, until the pastry looks dry. Remove foil and weights and continue baking until the pastry is golden, about 15 minutes longer. Remove pastry from the oven and increase oven temperature to 375 degrees.
  • Melt butter in a skillet, add the onions and saute slowly until they are transluscent and tender. Snap the ends off the asparagus and peel them about half way up from the bottom. Cut the asparagus into half-inch-thick slices on a sharp slant. You should have about one cup of cut asparagus. Add to the skillet with the onions, toss in the butter and add the chives. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Scatter the asparagus mixture in the baked pastry shell. Whisk the eggs and half and half together and pour into the shell. Sprinkle with the cheese. Place in the oven and bake until set and golden brown, about 40 minutes.
