Chorizo and aspargus tart over corn cream

During my morning walk I found asparagus. When I saw these beautys I stopped, and of course that I bought. What a beautiful and delicious tart would we have tonight,  I thought.

I go back happy at home and noticed that I still had a package of phyllo dough in the fridge and some chorizo. I had no doubt,. they were part of my tart too.

While preparing my pie, I put an egg to boil, and once ready, wet the tip of the asparagus in the  running yolk, one thing I love to do with asparagus. I love the combination.

Returning the tart I have to tell you that I loved the combination of textures, the crispness in contrast to velvety cream corn, delicious.

  • 100 g of fresh corn kernels
  • 2 Spanish chorizo ​​
  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
