Asparagus, Cherry Tomato and Brie Tart

Yes, another asparagus recipe.  We're seeing asparagus for sale everywhere and we're eating plenty of them!  And some of the white asparagus are huge!

This tart is made from puff pastry.  Great for a light meal or for snack!

1 sheet ready-rolled puff pastry, thawed
2 bunches asparagus, blanched
80g brie cheese, sliced
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 egg
2 tsp pure cream
2 tsp mustard
Freshly ground pepper
Serves 2 - 4

1.  Preheat oven to 200C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

2.  Place pastry on baking tray.  Using a knife, make a 2cm border around the edges of pastry, making sure not to cut through.  Refer to the picture below.

 3.  Using a fork, prick the centre of pastry a few times.  Bake for 5 minutes or until puffed and a little brown.
4.  Remove pastry from oven.  Press down the centre of pastry.  Arrange asparagus and top with brie.  Whisk egg, cream and mustard together.  Pour over asparagus and brie and sprinkle with pepper.  Bake for another 8 minutes or until pastry is golden.
