Ingredients list

  • 20 pieces green asparagus
  • 230 g puff pastry
  • 1 Clove garlic
  • 1 Chili fresh
  • olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 30 ml liquid cream
  • 100 g mozzarella cheese grated
  • lemon zest
  • Salt according to taste
  • pepper according to taste
  • poppy according to taste


  • Wash the asparagus thoroughly under running water, cut off the woody part of the stalk and peel the lower third. Peel the garlic and finely slice the fresh chili.
  • Heat a dash of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and briefly sauté the whole clove of garlic and the chili slices. Then add the asparagus and sauté for a few minutes.
  • Then remove the garlic and turn off the heat. Now add a little lemon zest and season with salt and pepper. Mix everything well and leave to cool.
  • Meanwhile, place the egg yolks and cream in a small bowl and whisk thoroughly.
  • Roll out the puff pastry and cut into four rectangles of equal size. Then turn each piece of puff pastry toward you so that it forms a diamond. Place five pieces of asparagus, tips up, in the center of each diamond and spread a handful of grated mozzarella on top of the asparagus spears.
  • Now brush the open spaces on the left and right sides of the puff pastry with some of the egg-cream mixture. Then fold the right side over the asparagus towards the center. Then fold the left side of the pastry over it as well and press down lightly, creating a bundle so that the asparagus fits snugly.
  • Now transfer the asparagus bundles to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, brush the surfaces with the egg-cream mixture, and sprinkle with poppy seeds if desired.
  • Finally, bake in a preheated oven at 220°C top/bottom heat for about 10 minutes. Then serve and enjoy hot.
