Pastry ingredients:

  • 1 tsp mustard
  • Salt
  • ¼ Cup cold water
  1. Process pastry ingredients, adding water gradually until a ball forms. (you might not need the whole ¼ cup).
  2. Wrap the pastry in cling film and refrigerate for ½ hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  4. Roll the pastry out to fill the tart tin.
  5. Prick pastry and blind bake with weights for 15 mins.

Tart Filling ingredients:

  • 220g Ricotta
  • 200g Cottage Cheese
  • 50g Smoked Cheddar Grated (you can also substitute this with parmesan)
  • 6 Eggs
  • Salt + Pepper
  • 2 Bunches Asparagus
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl except the asparagus. Once the tart shell is blind-baked, pour in the egg mixture.
  2. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus and discard. Arrange asparagus on top of the egg mixture. You can fan the asparagus out to achieve a nice circular pattern, using any good off-cuts to fill in the gaps.
  3. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and set. Serve with a simple side salad.
