Ingredients
  • 150g Grower’s Selection Asparagus, woody ends trimmed and cut into 3cm pieces
  • 4 sheets ready-rolled filo pastry
  • 50g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 punnet salad cress
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 5 medium eggs
  • 170g pot Asda Authentic Greek Yogurt
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4.

  • Add the asparagus to a pan of boiling water and cook for 1 min until bright green. Drain and rinse under cold water.

  • Unroll the filo and brush each sheet with melted butter. Stack and cut into 12 squares, trimming off any excess. Divide the filo evenly between a 12-hole muffin tin, pressing the sheets firmly into place.

  • Trim the cress; reserve a little and divide the rest between the filo cases, along with the spring onions and asparagus.

  • In a bowl, beat the eggs, stir in the Greek yogurt and season with black pepper.

  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the veg. Bake for 40-45 mins until the pastry is golden and the filling has set. Cool for 15 mins then garnish with the reserved cress to serve, or cool completely if packing.
