Recipe

With spring finally upon us (yeah!), I immediately begin to think about delicious spring vegetables and yummy, scrumptious spring quiches or tortes. Although asparagus season hasn’t officially started, the first crop is beginning to show up in farmer’s markets and grocery stores and I just couldn’t resist. For this quick and easy asparagus quiche, I took a shortcut by using a frozen store bought crust and then filled it with beautiful asparagus, red onions, and a little bit of mozzarella cheese. Great served warm or cold with a simple green salad.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and place the frozen pie crust on the counter.
  2. Spray a saute pan with cooking spray and saute the onions until they begin to become translucent. Add the asparagus whole and saute for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Remove 8 asparagus from the mixture and cut in 1/2. Leave the top half whole to decorate the top of the quiche and chop the remaining asparagus.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole eggs, egg whites, cheese, milk, salt, and pepper until frothy. Stir in the remaining chopped asparagus, onions, and garlic.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the pie crust and top with the 1/2 pieces of asparagus to create a beautiful top to the quiche.
  6. Bake according to the directions on the pie crust likely 20-25 minutes until the center is firm.
