Meat Free Monday -Stilton & Asparagus Filo Tarts – Lettuce Free Salad

I have Stilton to use up and Aldi have Asparagus in their super6 so with some Filo pastry in the freezer, seems a no brainer πŸ˜‰

Stilton and Asparagus Filo Tarts.

Preheat the oven to 200 fan.

I spray the medium quiche tins with quick release spray, and lay sheets of Filo, brushed with melted butter into the tins.

Crumble the Stilton and trim the Asparagus, then make a savoury custard with 4 whole eggs, 3rd of a pot of double cream, a good pinch of black pepper, but not salt as the Stilton is quite salty. Mix together and spoon into the pastry.

Keep the leftover Asparagus stalks, makes a great Risotto.

Lay a couple of pieces of Aparagus on top and into the hot oven for 15 mins till golden.

The salad is fine Cous Cous with finely sliced celery, diced red peppers, spring onions and cucumber, a glug of olive oil and the juice of a lemon – a great salad to replace the shortage of lettuce.

I added a jacket Potato to Youngest and Hubby’s plate.

Pudding was homemade Brownies and Homemade vanilla Icecream πŸ˜‡

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
