Cook with Ginger: Walnut, Goat's Cheese and Asparagus Slice

Good Evening Universe!!
I don't know about you, but sometimes when I get home from work I am just too tired to cook anything fancy or extravagant. Don't get me wrong, I love to cook...LOVE to cook, but sometimes, I just want to eat something quickly and then veg out on the sofa and watch Friends!

Does anybody feel like this too?

I had this the other night. I was really tired during the day, so decided that I would cook myself a savoury slice.

Savoury slices are SO easy to prepare and cook. I didn't really know how the flavours for my slice would taste together, so this one was a bit of an experiment...

But it turned out beautifully, so I thought I'd share it!





The beauty of this recipe is that you can use pretty much anything on your slice. The base is just a sheet of puff pastry, which you can pick up from most supermarkets. The topping is up to you! I used grated goat's cheese, asparagus spears and crushed walnuts on my slice. Goat's cheese is one of my favourite types of cheese...I nearly used a whole block for this!

I scored around the slice (about 1 inch away from the edge.) I then brushed the edge with milk to help it go golden.  I cooked my slice for 20 minutes on Gas Mark 5 (190 degrees Celsius/375 degrees Fahrenheit,) turning it half way through for even coverage...



After the slice came out I drizzled it with honey.

Then I ate some!!

How easy was that?!

It's a simple idea for those nights where you just want to flop down and relax and do nothing. Other toppings that I've tried that really work are:

Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella

Goat's Cheese, Red Onion, Bacon and Mushroom.

Go on...get creative!!

Happy Cooking!
