Pea and asparagus tart

It's springtime!!! Yay! I am enjoying the warmer weather and lighter evenings ever so much. I am also enjoying springtime food. I'm talking asparagus.

You have to be really careful with asparagus. It's only in season for a brief period of time in the UK. When it's not then it gets shipped in from all over the world (often from Peru I think) which isn't very good! So- make the most of it!

- Puff pastry
- Green veg (spinach, peas, spring onions, asparagus, beans etc)
- 170ml double cream
- 90ml greek yoghurt
- 3 eggs
- Salt + pepper
- Chives
- Feta
- Hard cheese
- Salad (I had some leftover beetroot in mine)

1) Roll out the pastry and put it in your flan dish. Bake at gas 6 for 10 mins or so until it is just starting to go brown.
2) Take the case out of the oven, squish the puffed up base down and pour your veg in (the only thing you need to pre-cook is the spinach if you're using it.
3) Mix the cream, yoghurt, eggs, salt, pepper, chives and hard cheese together then pour it over your veg.
4) Artistically plop some more veg onto with some crumbled feta and maybe a bit more hard cheese.
5) Bake at gas mark 6 for 30 mins or so, or until it is golden on topand not wobbly in the middle.
6) Eat with a whole bunch of salad and think of summer!
