How do I prepare a vegan asparagus tart?
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) or 400°F (200°C) for puff pastry. If you are making a shortcrust pastry, briefly knead all the ingredients into a crumbly shortcrust pastry. Keep the dough cold as long as you prepare the remaining ingredients. And soak the cashews in hot water for about 10 minutes.
Cut the peeled onion and garlic into fine cubes. Now heat the onion in a pan over medium heat and add a little water every now and then. Braise the onion until it is glassy. Now add the garlic and briefly steam it. For about 1 minute. Now deglaze the onions with white wine.
Add the drained cashews and the remaining ingredients, except for the onion and the garlic, in a high-performance mixer and mix until they are creamy. Season with chives, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.
Add the sauce to the onions and bring to a boil briefly while stirring.
Wash the asparagus and cut off woody ends. Shorten them to fit your pan later.
Braise the asparagus in a pan for about 5 minutes. This is how the asparagus unfolds its full taste.
Now put the shortcrust pastry or puff pastry into the tart pan and bake for 10 min.
Briefly roast the pine nuts in a pan without oil.
Now put a layer of asparagus on the tart. You can use cut ends that you cut to fit the asparagus spears.
Now pour the cream over it and put the asparagus pieces on it. Depending on the shape, in a circle or in a row. Spread the pine nuts on it.
Bake the tart in the oven for about 20 minutes. Puff Pastry will take a bit longer. It is best to let the tart cool for about 10 minutes before cutting.
Tips for a perfect vegan asparagus tart:
- I recommend a high speed blender for the cashew cream. Otherwise, the cream may become grainy.
- If you are using frozen puff pastry, defrost it first.
- The asparagus should still be firm, dense and not too soft.
- Puff pastry must be baked at higher temperatures than normal dough.
- When the puff pastry or shortcrust pastry turns brown, the tart is ready.
- Instead of white wine, you can also add a little white balsamic vinegar to the cream.
Can I prepare the vegan asparagus tart in advance?
You can prepare the dough and cashew cream a day or two in advance. And then steam the asparagus freshly and bake fresh.
What can I serve with the asparagus tart?
Asparagus tart tastes very good with a green mixed salad.
How can I store the vegan asparagus tart?
The asparagus tart tastes best freshly baked. However, you can keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator and then bake them again just before serving.
