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

Asparagus Gruyere and Garlic Tart

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.

The Perfect Spring Asparagus Tart

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!
