Pastries Vegetarian

Asparagus and egg Galette w/ dill chèvre

October 21, 2014

Something I have recently fallen for is cooking with seasonal produce as we all know; it’s something I harp on about.
With Spring blooming down under, asparagus has become a frequent in the DTS HQ.  

This asparagus and egg galette with dill goats cheese was simple, fresh and if you don’t mind eating pastry (oh pastry, so tasty <3) then you should try this recipe!  

Asparagus has some amazing health benefits for you and you can read all about them here. I am trying to incorporate at least one fresh vegetable in each meal I eat which guarantees a day doesn’t go by without me consuming my daily 5 (sometimes 10!)

I am loving it because I feel great. It’s the little choices that we make every day that help maintain a healthy diet. 

I also eat a lot of eggs – as a vegetarian I find that I have to to sustain me for breakfast some times vegemite does not cut it. Jackson cals me eggy.. I am still unsure whether its really cute or really not.. 

asparagus and egg galette recipe

I used Dill Goats cheese because its damn amazing but gruyere, feta, ricotta or mozzarella would be delicious too! 

The galette can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner and travels quite well in some tin foil/lunch box. I added some extra goats cheese after I took these photos because I realised I was so tame when adding the cheese – what was I thinking?

  1. 1 Bunch fresh asparagus spears ends trimmed
  2. 2 sheets puff pastry
  3. 2 eggs and 1 extra egg yolk for an egg wash
  4. Sprinkle of ground cumin or ground coriander
  5. A cheese of your choice (I used Dill Goats cheese because its damn amazing but gruyere, feta, ricotta or mozzarella would be delicious too!)
  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg celcius (355 deg f)
  2. Defrost one entire sheet of pastry and cut a 2cm thick border out of the second piece. These 4 strips of pastry become the crust of the galette. I put the centre square of the second pastry back in the freezer.
  3. Trim the asparagus. Ready the egg wash by mixing one tablespoon water or milk with the egg yolk in a smal bowl and set aside
  4. Once pastry has defrosted and has the border/crust on the edge - place the asparagus spears in the middle spread evenly. Brush pastry with the egg wash. Season with salt and pepper and place in oven for 10 minutes on 180 degrees
  5. After 10 minutes in oven pastry and asparagus should start to cook/puff. Remove and crack the 2 eggs over the asparagus. If you want your cheese to melt - add it now. If you want it fresh - add at end.
  6. Place back in oven for a further 8 minutes (keep an eye on it) and remove once eggs are cooked to your liking. Remove and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and herbs
  1. You can add as much or little cheese as you wish to this recipe. You could also serve with fresh dill and cream cheese.

    I saw this photo on Instagram and had to check the recipe out. It looks amazing! Any meal with a sheet of puff pastry is a winner in my book. I’m not great at cooking asparagus but I love eating it!

    I’m with you Bec, you can’t beat fresh, seasonal produce. And how awesome is puff pastry – I love how it can turn something simple into a little bit of fancy!

      Indeed! Glad we’re on the same pastry page 🙂

    mhm now that’s a healthy brunch item I can get behind! love all the asparagus lined up – it reminds me of a cute picket fence.


    • Reply Bec October 23, 2014 at 10:43 am

      Thanks! I must admit I had fun lining them all up!

    It’s a tasty galette and it looks so pretty! I’d say “elegant”. Asparagus are good for you but I feel they do deliver a strong taste, so extra cheese is just about right 🙂

    • Reply Bec October 22, 2014 at 9:16 am

      Elegant, you are so right! I felt quite fancy whilst posting this recipe I must admit.

    I love the egg on the galette with all of its runny yolk. Asparagus is one of my favourite vegetables and I’m always so happy when it is in season 🙂

    • Reply Bec October 21, 2014 at 5:56 pm

      I’m forever trying to achieve the perfect yolk which can be hard when baking in the oven! I love asparagus too, it’s cheap as chips at the moment! x

    Love the new blog design. I’m definitely going to be trying this recipe and more. I have hubby heading to sea for a month on Thursday which means for the first time in a long time the menu planning and cooking (and everything else) is my department.

      Thank you!! I am wishing you delicous cooking luck! x

    First of all – I love the new blog design! It’s even nicer than your old one (if that’s possible). Secondly, I need to make this asparagus and egg galette asap. I just noticed that asparagus is only $1 a bunch at my local supermarket at the moment so this would the perfect way to take advantage of this promo (and to eat a delicious brunch while I’m at it). Thanks for sharing the recipe x
