    Ingredients
    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

    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.
