Ingredients for Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles

Ingredient Notes: 

Umami Powder: Umami is one of my go-tos in my kitchen. It’s rich, earthy, and savory, and features porcini and shiitake mushrooms complimented with onion, mustard, thyme and a hint of chili pepper spice. Seriously adds so much delicious flavor to any recipe!

Asparagus: Asparagus are a great source of nutrients, such as fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, and K. It can also help improve your digestion.

How to make puff pastry bundles: 

1. Preheat the oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Roll out the puff pastry dough till you can roughly sketch out 9 squares as pictured above. Drizzle the puffed pastry with half of the olive oil, just randomly.

3. To the center of the square, add equal amounts of the sundried tomato, feta, and asparagus (remember this is being divided by 9). NOTE: when placing the asparagus to the puff pastry, make sure that the top and bottom of the asparagus and aligned with 2 corners of the puff pastry, refer to photos.

6. Drizzle the bundles with more oil and lightly dust with some garlic powder.

7. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Watch them closely to avoid burning.

Expert Tips & FAQ: 

How do I make these vegan? Use your favorite vegan feta substitute or equivalent instead of regular feta. 

Can I add different fillings? Totally! Get creative. Use olives instead of sundried tomatoes, or even jarred artichokes. 

Where do I find puff pastry? You’ll almost always find it in the frozen aisle at your grocery store. Look around the frozen pies and baked goods.

Have fun with the spices but I love this combo!

If you are not a fan of sundried tomatoes then use olives.
