How to Make Creamy Asparagus and Potato Tart

  • 1 pound asparagus spears, hard ends removed.
  • Just bend the asparagus stalk at the bottom and break off where it naturally bends, about 1/4th of the way up.
  • Then put the asparagus stalks in boiling salted water for about 4 minutes, drain immediately and set it aside.
  • Brush the bottom of a rectangular baking dish with olive oil.
  • Now place a sheet of filo pastry in the dish and brush with the olive oil all over.
  • Layer another sheet of filo pastry over the first sheet and also coat with oil.
  • Repeat until you've used up all sheets.
  • Work quickly because the filo dries fast.
  • You can keep the sheets covered with a damp towel.
  • In a large bowl, use a potato masher to mash the potatoes.
  • Blend together the silken tofu, soy milk and vegan cream cheese, then add to the mashed potatoes and continue mashing.
  • Add the salt and pepper and nutmeg.
  • Mix them together properly.
  • Pour the mashed potato mixture into the filo pastry dish.
  • Smoothen at the top.
  • Now lay the asparagus spears side by side along the length of the baking dish, on top of the mashed potatoes.
  • Brush the top with any remaining olive oil, fold under any filo pastry that's hanging over the edge of the baking dish, and then bake in a 375-degree oven for 25 minutes or until the filo pastry is golden brown.
  • Remove and set it aside for 10 minutes before cutting in.
