    1. Heat a small amount of oil in a non stick frying pan and put it on a low heat.Add the bacon,onions,asparagus,mushrooms and cook for 4/5 minutes.

    4. Making the pastry
    5. Begin by sifting the flour and pinch of salt into a large bowl, Now add the lard and butter, cut into smallish lumps, then take a knife and begin to cut the fat into the flour. Go on doing this until it looks fairly evenly blended, then begin to rub the fat into the flour using your fingertips only and being as light as possible. As you gently rub the fat into the flour.Now sprinkle 1 tablespoon of water in, then, with a knife, start bringing the dough together, using the knife to make it cling. Then discard the knife and, finally, bring it together with your fingertips. When enough liquid is added, the pastry should leave the bowl fairly clean. If this hasn\'t happened, then add a spot more water. Now place the pastry in a polythene bag and leave it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
    6. Preheat the oven to 190 C / 375 F / gas mark 5.
    7. Remove the Pastry case from the fridge and line the base of the pastry with baking parchment and then fill in with baking beans.Place on a baking tray and bake blind for 20 minutes.Remove the beans and parchment and return to the oven to cook for another 5 minutes to cook the base.
