I love serving this for an Easter brunch or as a spring appetizer. But this tart is really delicious year round!

I thought of this recipe a few weeks ago while I was on a walk with my husband. It was one of the first warm, crisp sunny days of the year, and we were able to get in a 4 mile walk in the evening.

It was so nice to enjoy the fresh air, and while we were walking, BAM, the idea for this tart came into my mind.

As soon as I thought of it, I could taste it. Flaky puff pastry, a lemony spiced whipped goat cheese, roasted asparagus, and lemon slices. I knew I needed to make it ASAP.

So that weekend, I made it for my family, and they LOVED it. I knew I needed to share the recipe!

Fresh asparagus, lemony whipped goat cheese, and flaky puff pastry. This recipe screams springtime!

This recipe is truly SO easy – there’s less than 10 ingredients and only a few steps to this delicious tart!
