This is similar to a quiche but low and flat, so make it in a flan mold or shallow fluted ceramic quiche pan. If you use a standard pie pan, you may need to increase the baking time. You can use any blanched vegetable. Asparagus is a good choice. This is best served the day you make it because the crust gets a little soggy on day two. But it will keep in refrigerator covered for up to 3 days.Source unknown
