Crust free Asparagus Quiche

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.


Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

  • 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.
