Asparagus Tart Recipe

Bright green stalks of asparagus are popping up all around lately – at our local farmer’s market and in the produce department at my grocery store. I keep kicking myself that they would also be shooting up in my garden right about now if I’d just have planted them a few years ago when I should’ve.

Oh well. I’ll support the local farmers who did think about planting them instead.

But, where ever I find them, I’m definitely snatching them up as quickly as I can.

If your family enjoys asparagus as much as mine, I really think they’ll love this asparagus tart.

Place your sheet of pastry dough onto your tart pan. I used my long, skinny tart pan that has become one of my favorites lately. I love the size and the removable bottom to the pan. It makes tart serving so easy, peasy.

Anyway, once I have laid my pastry dough onto my tart pan, I make sure that it is not overstretched for the inside of the pan. Then, to trim the dough, I simply use my rolling pin and roll along the edge of the pan. It makes a clean and neat cut every time!

Next, place your Gruyere cheese slices on the the bottom of your tart dough. I had my cheese cut at the deli of my local grocery store. This is what she called “deli cut.” I have no idea if that is really the name of a cut or if she was pulling my leg. Either way, it is not too thick and not too thin. Just right.

Next, trim the bottoms of the stalks of your asparagus. For my tart, I decided to use five stalks going in one direction and five for the other. I just placed two stalks of asparagus end to end in my tart pan to decide how much needed to be trimmed. While this doesn’t have to be perfect, it is nice when they are trimmed evenly so that the presentation looks nice.

Once you have your asparagus all nestled in, then sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Bake your asparagus tart at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes and then serve warm.

Recipe Review


  1. Oh, this is just gorgeous, Robyn! Your pictures are beautiful. I love asparagus…and gruyere…and of course, puff pastry. This is perfect! Aaaaand, I have that very tart pan. I love it!

    Going straight to my must-make list! 🙂

    1. I made this last night. Holy delicious. The only aitddion I made was to toss the pasta with a little bit of butter (because why not right?) before plating it and adding the oil, cheese, apples and nuts. Excellent recipe!

  2. Totally got your drift. I have a 7 year old boy, so that humor is definitely not lost on me.

    I do wish my son would eat asparagus though. I love it and he won’t even take a bite!!! I guess that means I can make this tart and keep it all for myself…

  3. We absolutely love asparagus and I have been grabbing a bunch whenever I see it. It is so good, and Gruyere is the perfect match. I love your tart pan!

  4. This looks so delicious, Robyn! I love a savory tart, especially with such elegant ingredients!

  5. I have never tried this kind of tart and it looks definitely healthy and yummy as well.. Thanks for the idea here..

  6. I want this for breakfast! (And I’ve really been wanting one of those long tart pans. I think you’ve just convinced me!)

  7. Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies, but I’ve never had it in a tart. This sounds awesome!

  8. This looks beautiful! I just made this same tart not too long ago and I absolutely loved it! So easy to make and oh-so-tasty.

  9. My-Oh-My!!! Love all the ingredients in this tart. Can’t wait to make this. Once again, you’re battin’ a thousand!! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I wish I had some asparagus in my backyard as well but like you I’ll be supporting my local farmers and getting my fill of asparagus while the season is here!

  11. I absolutely love the simplicity and elegance of this recipe. What better combo than the season’s star produce and creamy Gruyere?!

  12. Wow, this looks absolutely perfect for Spring! I could eat asparagus every single day, but the Gruyere takes it to a whole different level.
