Ingredients

For the cheesy asparagus straws:

  • ~ 40g scrap of puff pastry (enough for a rectangle measuring ~ 10cm x 20cm)
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp finely grated vegetarian parmesan-style cheese
  • ~ 10 stalks asparagus

For the mustard mayonnaise:

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Instructions

  • Spread the rolled out puff pastry with a thin layer of cream cheese, and sprinkle with the grated parmesan (you can hold a little parmesan back to sprinkle on top if you like).
  • Cut the pastry into ten thin strips, each measuring around 1cm x 10cm.
  • Wrap each piece of asparagus with a strip of pastry, and lay on a lightly greased baking tray. Sprinkle any extra parmesan over the top.
  • Bake at 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F) for around 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Serve warm or at room temperature.
