Asparagus and Herb Tart with a Walnut and Buckwheat Crust
A celebration of the seasonal star of the moment; asparagus, it needs very little dressing up other than some cheese and fresh herbs to make it sing. The tart crust is a wholesome and nutritious blend of walnuts, buckwheat and spelt flour. This may sound a little intimidating but the crust is very easy to make, with everything being thrown in the food processor.
Sugar and soy are delicious in marinades, but can make the marinated meat catch and burn quite quickly. To avoid this I like to make the glaze separately and add it to the cooked steak, then serve the remaining glaze on the side.
