Kitchen tools :

  • Kitchen scales
  • Baking trays
  • Saucepan
  • Frying pan
  • Blender
  • Silicone brush (optional but recommended)
  • Oven

Ingredients :

  • 500 g green asparagus
  • 1 puff pastry
  • 150 g grated mozzarella cheese
  • 100 g bacon
  • 125 g ricotta cheese
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Herbs: 2 g dill, 2 g mint, 4 g basil, 2 g parsley
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 handful sesame seeds
  • Pinch of fine salt
  • Pinch of pepper

Instructions :

  1. Start by cutting off the tough ends of the asparagus and boiling in a pan of water for 10 minutes. Once tender, transfer to a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process. Meanwhile, brown the bacon slices.
  2. Now prepare the delicious ricotta cream: In a blender, combine the coarsely chopped herbs, a pinch of salt, a dash of pepper, lemon juice, ricotta, garlic and a drizzle of olive oil. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Take the puff pastry and generously spread the succulent ricotta cream in the center. Then add the cooked asparagus, crispy bacon and grated mozzarella.
  4. Preheat your oven to 200°C in natural convection/static heat mode, with both top and bottom elements working. Create slits along the sides of the puff pastry and carefully fold one over the other to form a pretty braid.
  5. For a golden finish, brush the puff pastry with egg yolk and sprinkle the top with sesame seeds.
  6. Place the prepared puff pastry in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, until golden and crisp.
  7. Finally, serve and enjoy this succulent creation while it’s still piping hot! The delicious blend of flavors is sure to satisfy your taste buds.

Storage instructions:

Although it’s technically possible to store this delicious treat in the refrigerator, the crispness of the dough may be slightly compromised. For the best experience, I highly recommend enjoying it immediately after it comes out of the oven. However, I must add that its exceptional taste is so irresistible that you’ll probably finish it in no time!
