Asparagus Tart

When I think of spring, the first things that comes to mind are tulips and asparagus, two of my favorite things!

Considering that asparagus is one of the healthiest foods, I tend to make it a lot while it is in season. Which means I have to get creative with recipes so that my family does not get tired of the precious vegetable! After seeing this tart in one of  Martha’s Stewarts magazines, I knew it would be a keeper. I can almost guarantee that if the recipe has Gruyère in it, it is going to be a winner in my husband’s book. Anything that reminds him of home I guess.

This tart was so easy and took about 5 minutes to put together and 20 minutes to bake. Accompanied by a simple salad, this was a great quick flavorful lunch. It would also be a great tart for brunch!
