Kitchen equipment needed

- cutting board & chef’s knife

Preparation — 30 minutes
Make sure the clarified butter comes straight from the fridge, it has to be quite cold. COMBINE spelt flour, clarified butter, pinch of salt and 1 egg until you’ve reached a dough ball. You can knead it by hand, or use a standmixer. WRAP the dough ball with cling film and refrigerate half an hour.
Meanwhile PEEL the white asparagus. Use your finger to feel if you didn’t miss any little piece, cause the peel will be very stringy. Chop of about 2 cm of the bottom and place the asparagus in the asparagus pan and cover with cold water. Don’t let it come to a boil, they are done when you can slightly bend them. Remove them from the water and slice into pieces so they will fit the bottom the spring form.
PRE-HEAT the oven to 190 degrees celsius or 375 degrees fahrenheit.
CUT the mushrooms into slices and cook them in a medium-sized skillet with a little bit of olive oil until they become nicely colored. Season the mushrooms with pepper and salt.
COAT the spring form with clarified butter and ROLL out the dough using a rolling-pin. PLACE the dough into the spring form and place a small layer of breadcrumbs on the bottom to prevent the crust of becoming mushy.
