Dairy Free Asparagus & Cheese Scones with their delicate asparagus slices, pockets of melty cheese and pretty little flecks of green chives are a beautiful variation on a vegan cheese scone. Delicious, fluffy, savoury scones, worthy of any luxury vegan afternoon tea. Use goats cheese (or dairy free alternative) for a sharper flavour or add finely diced red onion for extra colour! Best eaten warm while the cheese is still melty, stuffed with more dairy free cheese and a caramelised red onion chutney or good old pickle.
