  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll the puff pastry into a slightly larger rectangle and place on the baking sheet. Use a knife to lightly score a 1 inch border around the edges of the puff pastry (be sure not to cut all the way through the pastry) and use a fork to poke a few holes in the center of the pastry.
  3. Lightly brush the edges with egg wash and sprinkle with flaky sea salt if desired.
  4. Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Gently press down on the center of the puff pastry to flatten.
  5. Spread a very thin layer of dijon mustard over the surface of the pastry, then sprinkle with the shredded Artikaas Vintage Lot 8 Aged Gouda cheese.
  6. In a small bowl, toss together the asparagus, thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper until evenly coated. Then arrange the asparagus on top of the cheese.
  7. Return to the oven and bake at 400°F for another 15-20 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender, the cheese is bubbling, and the edges of the puff pastry are golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Then garnish with sliced radishes and micro greens!

Optional: To keep the asparagus bright green, you can blanch it first! Bring a saucepan of water to a boil and set up an ice water bath by filling a bowl with cold water and 2 cups of ice cubes. Blanch the asparagus in the boiling water for 2 minutes and then immediately transfer them to the water bath to shock the asparagus and stop the cooking process. Remove from the water and pat the asparagus dry.
