Ingredients

See recipe card for quantities.

  • Green Asparagus – Use fresh asparagus! Ideally, all the asparagus spears should have a similar thickness.
  • Puff Pastry – Ensures crispy, buttery asparagus pockets!
  • Plain Skyr Yogurt – This will add a creamy, tangy contrast to the crispy asparagus. It also works with plain Greek yogurt.
  • Grated Cheese – I recommend Gruyere cheese or Cheddar cheese! Parmesan cheese would work too.
  • Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper – For marinating the asparagus.
  • Egg & Nigella Seeds – For brushing and garnishing! Nigella seeds not only look beautiful but also give the asparagus bundles a unique flavor.

  1. Wash the green asparagus, then snap off the woody ends. In a bowl, toss with olive oil, a pinch of salt, and pepper.
  2. Cut the puff pastry into 8 large rectangles, then add a dollop of the skyr yogurt to the middle of each one and slightly spread with the back of a spoon, leaving about ½” of room around the edges.

  1. Place 3-4 stalks of asparagus diagonally on the dough, then sprinkle cheese over them.

Variations

  • Fill the asparagus puff pastry bundles with a slice of Brie cheese and a few drops of honey instead of yogurt and cheese.
  • Stir a pinch of garlic powder or fresh herbs into the yogurt.
  • Instead of nigella seeds, you can use sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or everything bagel seasoning as a topping. It also tastes great without any topping!
  • Replace skyr yogurt with cream cheese for a richer taste (also more calorie-intense).
  • For an Italian twist, spread a thin layer of pesto on the puff pastry before adding the asparagus.
  • Use this recipe to make a homemade puff pastry dough.

Storage & Reheat Instructions

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container or wrapped in aluminum foil in the fridge. They will stay fresh for 3 days.

If you prefer to enjoy leftovers warm, reheat the pockets for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C).
