Green asparagus pie with puffed garlic
- 1 bulb garlic
- 500 gr green asparagus fresh
- 6 spring onions
- 25 gr coconut oil
- 5 tblspoon coconut cream
- 3 eggs
- 1 roller shortcrust pastry
- 1 handful parsley chopped
- 60 gr cheese grated, f.e. Emmental
- 2 tblspoon oliveoil
- pepper and salt
- Roll out the dough over the baking tray. Pierce small holes in the bottom with a fork. Cover the bottom with baking pearls (or dried beans). Bake the bottom 25 minutes at 180 ° C. Remove from the oven, remove the baking pearls and let cool down.
- Separate all parts of the garlic but leave the skin on. With a knife you cut off the lower hard part (where they are joined together). In a bowl, mix the oil with salt and pepper and stir in the parts of garlic. Place the cloves in a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes at 180º. Let them cool down and then you can easily push the look out of their skin.
- Cut the asparagus and onions (put 3 pieces of each aside) into 1 cm pieces. Bake it in a pan with the coconut oil. Season with pepper and salt.
- For the decoration of the pie we cut fine long strings of the remaining asparagus and spring onions with a peeler. Blanch them for 1 minute in boiling lightly salted water and then put them in ice water. (this way they keep a nice green color). Drain.
- In a mixing bowl you put the baked asparagus with spring onion, the cheese, the chopped parsley, the cloves of garlic, the coconut cream and the 3 beaten eggs. Mix everything well. Season with pepper and salt. Pour the mixture into the baked dough and bake for 25 minutes at 180º. Decorate with the strings of asparagus, spring onion and some extra cheese.
