This simple asparagus tart is easy to make, has only a handful of ingredients, and is so delicious! Can easily be made dairy-free/vegan friendly by using dairy-free cream cheese.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 8 oz. regular/dairy-free cream cheese or mascarpone, softened
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 23 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • salt and pepper
  • Chive blossoms, for decoration (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Place a large piece of parchment paper onto the counter and lightly dust with flour.
  3. Transfer the thawed sheet of puff pastry to the parchment and roll out into a large rectangle, roughly 10″ or 12″ x 16″.
  4. Score a 1-inch border around the pastry and use a fork to prick all over the center of the rectangle (see video above for how-to.)
  5. Bake puff pastry for 15 minutes, until lightly golden.
  6. In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, red onion, and chives.
  7. Spread all over the center of the puff pastry, leaving the one inch border plain.
  8. Top with asparagus spears and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake 20–30 minutes until asparagus is tender.
  9. Remove and let cool slightly before serving. Top with chive blossoms, if desired. Makes 6–8 servings.
