About this recipe: Turn leftover asparagus into something truly special! This savoury vegetarian starter is comprised of asparagus, boiled eggs, goat's cheese and peanuts. Best served alongside some crostini or garlic bread.


Serves: 4 

  • 200g cooked asparagus, finely chopped
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • handful rocket leaves
  • 120g goat's cheese
  • 85g salted peanuts, finely crushed
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:1hr chilling  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

  1. Grease then line 4 small individual-sized ramekin dishes with a layer of cling film and press gently into the sides. Grease lightly with a little oil.
  2. Divide the asparagus equally between the four ramekin dishes and press firmly into the base to compact. Follow with a layer of eggs, some neatly laid rocket leaves then spread some goat's cheese to the edges.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the peanuts and butter. Then divide equally between the ramekins. Season.
  4. Place the ramekin dishes into the fridge for at least 1 hour. Just prior to serving, remove from the fridge and invert a serving plate over each ramekin. Flip over then very carefully remove the ramekin, followed by the cling film to reveal a nicely layered tower. Season again if desired and serve immediately.
