  • 4 TB Chicken Broth
  • ½ T Salt

Instructions

  • Remove puff pastry from the freezer and let thaw for an hour.

  • With a fork, mix the goat cheese in a bowl to loosen, add ½ TB of water if necessary, which will make it easier to spread.
  • Spread the goat on the cooked pastry.
  • Add the asparagus mix on top of the goat cheese spread.
  • Cut the pastry into segments, and serve with lemon butter sauce.

Lemon Butter Sauce

  • Add white wine, shallots and lemon peel to a pot and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, melt butter.
  • Add water and flour to the butter and mix until there are no lumps remaining. Slowly whisk the slurry into the wine reduction.
  • The sauce will thicken as you cook, for another 5 minutes.
