Asparagus Puffed Pastry Pocket

There’s something that is so fresh and so hearty about asparagus. It’s a vegetable that my entire family will eat as well so it’s easy to see how we’ve found inspiration with one of our favorite flavors.

Asparagus Puffed Pastry Pocket

Ingredients –

  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • Optional: use the tops of 8 additional pieces to add to the tops of each pastry at the end.
  • 1 cup baby Swiss chard
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • salt, pepper and minced garlic to preference
  • 2 sheets puff pastry (we typically use a refrigerated one vs frozen). I cut them into quarters and make four hand pies from each one, so 8 total hand pies.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.Asparagus puffed pocketOpen the puff pastry and lay out on parchment paper on your tray. Cut the pastry sheets into four even pieces each.
Add filling to one half of each of the 8 pieces, fold in half and use a fork to press them closed.

Bake for 30 minutes or until fully puffed up and golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before enjoying.
