We love creative ways to prepare vegetables and these asparagus pillows are really delicious. The asparagus roasted in the phyllo dough is such a treat. Especially with the freshly grated Parmesan for saltiness and garlic powder for extra flavor. These will definitely be a highlight on your table and are a great way to get kiddos to eat their vegetables.
Note: If you use spray butter on the phyllo, the pillows will be crispy on the outside and bready in the middle. Using the melted butter will make them crispy all the way through. Choose your preferred style. The Test Kitchen
1 bunchasparagus, fresh
1 pkgphyllo dough (defrosted)
1-2 cfresh grated Parmesan cheese
·garlic powder, to taste
·spray butter (you can melt butter and brush the dough but I found the spray butter was much easier and quicker)
How to Make Crispy Garlic Parmesan Asparagus Pillows
- Spray outside totally with butter spray and lay on parchment lined baking tray and repeat until you use all the dough and asparagus. It usually works out just about right but towards the middle, I decide if I need to increase the asparagus to dough ratios so I use the whole thing because they heat up nicely the next day too.
