Asparagus and cheese tart

What you need:
300g flour
100g butter
100g yoghurt
40ml ice-cold water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Zitronensaft
90g goat cheese (I used Saint Maure)
50g parmesan
350g asparagus

What you do:
For the crust, cut the butter into small pieces and place in a bowl. Add the flour and salt. Mix, using you hands or a hand mixer, until just combined. Add yogurt, water and salt, mix quickly and form into a ball. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

While you wait, grate the parmesan and cut the goat cheese into small pieces. Wash the asparagus, cut off the ends and peel the bottom third. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F.

On a floured surface, roll the dough into a square (about 25cm/10in). I baked the taste in a brownie pan – you could use any baking pan in that size or simply bake the tart on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Transfer the dough to the baking pan/sheet.

Spread the cheese evenly over the dough and place the asparagus on top. Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the asparagus looks crispy.
