Ingredients

For the olive oil pastry:


  • 350 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150 ml La Española Pure Olive Oil
  • 125 ml cold water


For the filling:


  • 200 g small new potatoes
  • 400 g asparagus, trimmed and cut into 4 cm pieces
  • 100 g fresh peas
  • 300 ml crème fraiche
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 50 g finely grated Manchego
  • 2 tbsp La Española Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC, Gas Mark 4. Place a baking sheet in the oven.

Gather into a ball with your hands and knead gently on lightly floured surface for 5 minutes or until the dough is smooth and slightly elastic.

  4. Cover the base with baking paper and fill with ceramic baking beans. Bake on the preheated tray for 15 minutes, then remove the paper and beans, return to the oven for a further 5 minutes until golden.
  5. Meanwhile boil the potatoes in salted boiling water for about 20 minutes until tender, add the asparagus and peas and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Cut the potatoes into half or into thick pieces, reserve some of the asparagus tips.
