The other night I made dinner for a friend and I made the most delicious asparagus quiche. I just polished off another serving for lunch and it tasted even better today. I’ve made plenty of crustless quiches before but never with asparagus. I forgot how amazing asparagus can be.
This is a pretty easy recipe to follow and is very versatile. I’m not so great with pastry but one day I will make my own pie shell.
I do suggest using a casserole dish. I only have square baking dishes – but this would fit better into a 9×12″ casserole dish.
- 2 cups of cheese (cheddar, mozza or your favorite blend)
- 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil
- 1 bunch of asparagus (about 10-12 long pieces) cut into 1″ slices
- 1 cup of spring onions cut into small round pieces (diced)
- 1/2 can of creamed soup (I used Campbell’s Cream of Broccoli)
- 1/4 cup of half n half cream
- Six eggs beaten
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
- Spices: salt, black pepper, parsley, sage
- Preheat the oven to 375 and grease a casserole dish. I use Pam spray for this
- In a large skillet melt the butter. Add in the garlic, spring onions and asparagus. Season with spices to your liking. Cook for about 3-4 minutes. This is just so the asparagus can absorb some of the flavour. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, cream and soup. Don’t mix it too much. You can add a little bit of corn starch to thicken up the base if needed.
- Add in the asparagus mixture and cheese. Give it a little stir.
- Top up with more seasoning – I always add a little parsley on top as a garnish.
- Cook for about 40-45 minutes. Cooking times will vary so check often. I used the toothpick method.
This recipe will up to four people. I do suggest serving it with something on the side – like cooked ham, steamed asparagus, or garlic shrimp which is what I did. Scones or a cheese loaf would pair nicely with the quiche.
Optional: about 30 minutes into cooking, take the quiche out of the oven and add some more shredded cheese on top. You can broil the cheese to give it a crispier texture. I skipped this step – and it was still delicious.
