Method

  1. Shortcrust pastry: add flours, salt, and butter to a bowl. Mix well, then stir in the egg and water. Chill for ½ hour.
  2. Peel the rhubarb, then cut it at an angle into small pieces
  3. In a saucepan, add the sugar, a bit of water and the grenadine
  4. Add the rhubarb, and cook it until the tip of a knife goes in easily
  5. Peel the asparagus and cut it into small pieces, then cook it in a frying pan with a dash of olive oil
  6. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface, then line a pie tin with it. You can use a pie tin, or alternatively, an oven-safe Sitramovible pan (be sure to remove the handle). Blind bake the dough (i.e., the dough by itself in the pie dish or pan) for 20 minutes at 220°. (Please note: Sitramovable pans are only oven-safe up to 180°).
  7. Prepare the filling: in a bowl, break the eggs, add the cream, the cream cheese and the salt & pepper. Beat with a whisk
  8. Place the asparagus and rhubarb in the bottom of the pie tin, starting from the edge, then pour in the batter
  9. Bake it in the oven for 40 minutes at 160 °C, and "bon appétit!"
