    Asparagus, Swiss chard, pea and taleggio tart

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 45 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    320g all butter puff pastry sheet
    1 egg, beaten
    200g Swiss chard, stalks and leaves separated
    200g taleggio cheese, rind removed, sliced
    100g frozen peas
    400g asparagus, woody ends removed
    ½ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, leaves finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    3 tbsp grated parmigiano reggiano

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6, and line a large baking tray with baking parchment. Unroll the pastry then roll it out a little wider and lay on the baking tray. With a sharp knife, score a border about 2cm in from the edge, taking care not to cut all the way through. Prick the central area with a fork and glaze the border with the beaten egg. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden and almost cooked.

    2. Meanwhile, put the chard stalks in a large pan of boiling salted water and simmer for 1 minute. Add the leaves and cook for a further 30 seconds, until barely cooked. Drain, refresh in cold water, then drain again. Transfer to a clean tea towel and press out any excess water. Remove the pastry from the oven and flatten the centre with the back of a spoon. Layer the chard, taleggio, frozen peas and asparagus over the centre. Sprinkle over 1 tbsp water, then bake for 20-25 minutes, until the tart is crisp and golden.

    3. Combine the parsley, garlic, oil and parmigiano reggiano; season. Remove the tart from the oven and spoon over the thick parsley oil before serving immediately.
