Bookies Become Foodies

Bookies become Foodies


I ” have been looking forward to this event for a month! I think this is a splendid idea sharing recipes that are book inspired. At the time I signed up for this event I was reading A Match Made on Main Street by Olivia Miles.  It’s full of culinary genius! There were so many food choices it was hard to pick one! I don’t know about you, but for me life has been so busy lately, though I love to cook, I don’t have a lot of time. something that’s tasty, and looks great but takes minutes… is a winner to me. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Asparagus Tart.



The Ingredients –  1 sheet of puff pastry 1 bunch of Asparagus (about 1 1lb) 8 oz of Gruyere Cheese


DSCN0661 (1)

Grate the Cheese


Trim asparagus. Note… The fool proof way to trim asparagus hold either end,  bend it until it breaks.


Defrost Pastry Puff 30 min. Room Temp


Assemble the Tart. Pastry Puff, Cheese, then layer Asparagus nicely on top of that.  Cook for 15 minutes at 375



My Tart took only about 12 Minutes. So Keep an eye on it after 10 minutes!



Plate and Serve! If you are over 21 I recommend pairing your tart with a nice Sauvignon Blanc. I know not all of you are!!!

Don’t forget to check out the book A Match Made on Main Street! 

Thank you to Missie at A Flurry of Ponderings for hosting this fun event!
