For the German Blog-Event: meatless I chose this really delicious
Asparagus & cheese tart
Germans normally prefer white asparagus, but I love the green. Kevin is collecting Asparagus aspirations and for me it was inspiration: different from white asparagus with sauce hollandaise.

1. Put the flour in a bowl, add the butter to the flour and rub in
with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the grated
cheddar into the pastry and mix. Add 3 tbsp cold water and mix until
the pastry forms a ball. Wrap in cling film and chill for 5 mins.
Butter a 20 x 6 cm deep loose-bottom tart tin.
2. Heat oven to 180 °C/fan 160 °C/gas 4. Lightly dust the work
surface with flour, roll out the pastry and line the tin. Chill in
the freezer for 20 mins, then line the pastry case with baking paper,
fill with beans and cook for 15 mins. Remove the beans and paper,
then return the pastry case to the oven for 10 mins.
3. Crack the eggs into a jug, whisk, then add the milk and whisk
again. Sprinkle half the grated cheese over the pastry case, then
add the asparagus, egg mix and remaining cheese.
Bake in the lower half of the oven for 30-35 mins or until the egg mix is set.
