INGREDIENTS

  • 500g asparagus, woody ends snapped off and discarded
  • 60g grated mozzarella cheese
  • 30g dried, grated parmesan
  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 200g refried beans
  • 100g haloumi, coarsely grated
  • Store-bought guacamole, to serve
  • The Wholesome Food Company Fabulous Falafel Chips, to serve
  • Fresh herbs (we used basil, coriander, parsley and oregano), to serve


METHOD

Preheat oven to 200ºC (180ºC fan). Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Process asparagus stalks in a food processor until finely chopped. Place into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 mins. Allow to cool slightly before spooning asparagus into a clean muslin cloth (or Chux) and tightly wring out any excess water (discard liquid).

Place squeezed asparagus into a bowl with mozzarella, parmesan, rosemary and eggs. Season generously then mix well. Spoon mixture onto backing tray, flattening out to a large circle shape around 25cm in diameter.  Bake for 20 mins.

Remove from the oven and carefully spread refried beans over the top, then sprinkle with haloumi. Bake for a further 10 mins.

Top with guacamole, a generous handful of The Wholesome Food Company Fabulous Falafel Chips and fresh herbs to serve.
