Asparagus and gruyere tart with new potatoes

This is a really nice simple spring dish perfect for when you just want to get home and enjoy the evening. Asparagus is just coming into season and instead of just steaming and serving asparagus as a side dish, make it the main event. Asparagus works great with gruyere and this simple tart lets it do the talking.


  • 350g of asparagus (£2)
  • 200g of gruyere (£1.99)
  • 500g of Jus Rol puff pastry (£1)
  • 640g of organic new potatoes (£1)

The cupboard staples...

Salt, black pepper and butter

Total cost

If you already have the cupboard staples, then according to, this trolley was cheapest at Tesco’s where it came to £5.99 - that's £1.50 per head!


  • Pre heat the oven to 185C as you need it up to the correct temperature to cook the pastry.
  • Roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface and then place on a greased baking sheet and on to a baking tray. Now grate the gruyere cheese on to the pastry (make sure you leave around 1cm of space between the edge for the pastry to rise) and season with a little black pepper.
  • Finally lay the asparagus across the cheese and season with salt and brush the tart all over with melted butter. Place in the oven and cook until brown all over – this will take around 30 minutes.
  • Serve with new potatoes – buttered and with mint if you have!
  • Happy eating!
