During and after eating this two-color asparagus plate cake, I heard "it's quite delicious", which actually just means that the food was top notch. I no longer get the comment “when will we eat it again” because it can often take a long time, or perhaps never again. One of my favorite Italian recipes is a plate cake recipe with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.🍅🧀🌿

That's what you get for being married to a food blogger. Every day something different! But secretly I think I'm going to make this one again because I also enjoyed it myself. And because of the nice pattern, it also looks very nice on the table. It's a bit of fiddling but it's definitely worth it.

Of course you make the pesto yourself

Green asparagus grow above the ground and get their green color from the sun. White asparagus grows underground and stays white because they don't see sunlight. As a result, the green asparagus are available longer than the white ones, which only have a fairly short season from April to June.

The green asparagus are also much healthier than the white ones, because they contain more vitamins, such as vitamins C and K. Moreover, you don't have to peel the green asparagus, which saves you a lot of time in the kitchen.👩‍🍳

It was a bit of a puzzle, but the result is worth it.

You keep them in your fridge and you can process them in many ways. In this plate cake we mix them with their white brothers into one beautiful plate cake. The green rascals have the nice feature that you can actually use them in any kitchen. If you opt for Asian, they go well with that, but they can also be used very well for a soup or in a French quiche.

Delicious as dinner, but also in parts at a party, for example.

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

  • 10 witte asparagus
  • 10 green asparagus
  • 3 el crème fraîche
  • 3 el green pesto
  • 10 to stick Ardennes ham
  • 1 role puff pastry
  • 50 gr Parmesan cheese

Nice and easy: click on the logo of your favorite supermarket to add the ingredients.

And this is how you make it:

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  • Cut the asparagus diagonally into pieces of 2 to 3 cm.
  • Roll out the puff pastry on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Spread first with the crème frache and then with the pesto. Then cover with the Ardennes ham slices.
  • Place the pieces of green and white asparagus alternately on the ham. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese. Place in the oven for about 25 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
  • Delicious bites!
