This can make a healthy brunch, lunch or dinner when served with a side spinach salad and chopped fresh fruit.

Optional ingredients: Minced cooked bacon bits, sliced or chopped mushrooms, finely chopped fresh spinach. I add all of them if I have them on hand.

How to Make Asparagus Quiche

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place pie crust in large or deep pie dish, if you prefer to not use a crust, then lightly oil the pie dish. (Crust is optional.)
  3. Slice Asparagus spears into 1/2 inch segments except for the tops which should be left at 1-2 inch in length. Layer the 1/2 inch segments into the pie dish (on top of crust if using a crust.)
  4. Mix in a bowl the eggs, milk, and spices. Then add in the grated cheese of choice and stir until well mixed. If you use optional ingredients, add them to milk/egg mixture at this point. Pour this mixture into pie dish covering the 1/2 inch asparagus pieces.
  5. Arrange the asparagus tops around the top of quiche pointing to the edge of the pie.
  6. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (with a crust) or 35-40 minutes without a crust. Check for doneness by inserting knife into quiche. If it comes out clean then it is done.
  7. Let quiche rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  8. Serve quiche with a side salad and fresh fruit for healthy lunch or dinner
