asparagus and dill labneh tart

Filled with probiotic homemade yogurt.

This simple savoury tart not only looks fabulous, it tastes amazing and is a great way to show off asparagus spears in the most beautiful way. We've teamed roasted asparagus with garlic, dill, lemon zest and the hero ingredient, homemade labneh. Labneh is a soft cheese made from straining homemade yogurt. It takes a bit of time but requires minimal effort and delivers a delicious, tangy, creamy cheese that can be used in many different ways. Using it to fill a tart creates a fresh tasting summer dish to enjoy with a crisp salad or compliment a festive celebration.

Roasting asparagus is super easy and quick and brings out its best. The stalks stay vibrant, the tips get a little crispy and the flavour becomes concentrated.

We have used a buttery, grain-free, SCD friendly, almond flour crust however, any savoury tart crust or pastry can be used in its place. If you have a favourite, feel free to switch it out.

Begin this recipe a day ahead to drain the yogurt. Labneh can be made from cow milk yogurt or goat milk yogurt. Watch how it’s done here.

The ends of asparagus can be tough and woody. The best way to figure out where to trim your asparagus is to take a stalk and bend it. Wherever the stalk snaps is where the tender part starts and the tough part ends.
