  • One sheet of about 9-ounce (250 grams) store-bought puff pastry thawed. It doesn't matter which puff pastry you are using. As long as you can cut strips out of it, you are good to go.
  • 1 bunch asparagus (about 20-26 steams) I don't recommend using the very thick asparagus spears as they need more time to be cooked.
  • 1 large egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • *Optional* a handful of shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Preheated oven to 375°F/190°C.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rinse the asparagus and cut the ends off about 2- inch (5 cm).
  • Unfold/unroll the puff pastry sheet. Cut thin strips about ½- inch (1 cm) wide using a pizza roller. The length will depend on the size of the spears.
  • Take a strip and wrap it around the asparagus spear. Leave the tip free.
  • Place this onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Repeat until you are done.
  • Beat the egg with a teaspoon of water.
  • Brush each asparagus twist with the egg wash and sprinkle with salt and pepper, and Parmesan *optional*.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.


The dough needs to thaw before you use it. Take the package of the pastry out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge overnight or for 6-8 hours.
