Servings 8 puff pastries
- 1 (14 oz.) package premium puff pastry sheets
- 1 bunch organic asparagus, ends trimmed
- 1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced long-lengthwise
- 1 large egg, beaten (For the egg wash)
HERB HONEY SAUCE:
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 2 Tbsps unsalted butter
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp dried basil
TO MAKE THE PUFF PASTRY:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, add the asparagus, olive oil, salt, + black and toss together until fully coated.
Remove pastry sheets from packaging and roll out unto a floured surface. Cut the pieces into 8 squares total. Place the sliced mozzarella unto each square and top with a handful of asparagus (about 4-5 should fit). Take two sides of the pastry and fold up and over the asparagus until enclosed. Repeat until all squares are topped. NOTE: You can lightly brush both ends to ensure that they seal tightly, if preferred.
Place each prepared pastry unto the baking sheet, brush the tops with egg wash and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
TO MAKE THE HERB HONEY SAUCE:
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add together all ingredients and mix until combined and the sauce heats through and begins to boil. Remove from heat.
Once puff pastries are baked to perfection, remove from oven, drizzle herb honey sauce atop each pastry and enjoy!
