One Dinner and Two Tarts (Asparagus and Scallion)

A dinner that says spring in one bite. Puff pastry topped with fresh asparagus or scallions. The veggies are resting on a bed of Gruyere and honey mustard to add another layer off flavor.

The tarts are a very quick meal to assemble and worked perfectly at my house on a busy weeknight. You could also serve them as an appetizer when guests arrive.

2 tarts serve 4.


for 1 tart

*  1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
*  olive oil
*  1 tablespoon honey mustard
*  1 cup Gruyere, grated
*  8 to 10 pieces of aspargus/ scallions or green garlic
*  salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 F Convection.

Line a baking sheet with silicon pad or parchment paper. Place puff pastry on the sheet and unfold. Brush outer edges (about 1 inch) with olive oil and the inside with  the honey mustard. Sprinkle cheese over the mustard and place vegetables on top. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for 15 to 25 minutes.

They are both so pretty! I think I'll have to make both to decide which I like best. 😉

I've been noticing the abundance of recipes on your site calling for Gruyere cheese and wondering if you have stock in a certain brand. Kidding aside, what are your favorite brands or suppliers?

Kirsten, this is a genius idea for a busy school night. Thanks a lot for sharing and it will probably be on our menu next week!

Asparagus is my favorite and looking at this picture is KILLING me! I want a piece! 🙂

I wish I had this recipe when we lived in Connecticut–I had so much asparagus I ran out of recipes! Both tarts look amazing.

These are so pretty! I love the idea of using green onions or green garlic as the star of a tart.

I noticed the root ends too…would never have thought of leaving them on but I love how they look…it takes rustic to a whole new level.

I would love either of these but then I'm with Karen…add puff pastry to almost anything and I'm in love!

Karen Harris May 18, 2011 at 4:21 pm

These both look so great. I love anything surrounded in puff pastry.

Elisabeth May 18, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Hi Kirsten-It's been a while since we commented on each others' blogs and just in time, you also posted an asparagus recipe, which I would like to mention since I also have an asparagus post on my recent post. I already linked to 2 others with their recipe and would like to link yours as well!
Love the 2 tarts, and especially the genius ideas with both. The scallion tart looks so cool, and rustic with the ends roots left on:DDD
