=====


  • Dish name: Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quiche

  • Cuisine: French-inspired

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus chilling

  • Cooking time: 40-45 minutes

  • Yield: Serves 6


Ingredients:


  • 1 pie pastry crust (9-inch)

  • 1 cup asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 cup heavy cream or whole milk

  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Optional: Fresh herbs (such as parsley or chives), chopped for garnish


Instructions:


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Roll out the pastry crust and fit it into a pie dish. Refrigerate while preparing the other ingredients.

  3. Blanch the asparagus pieces in boiling water for 2 minutes, then immediately transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Drain well.

  4. Spread the crumbled goat cheese evenly over the bottom of the crust. Top with the drained asparagus.

  5. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour over the asparagus and goat cheese.

  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.

  7. Allow the quiche to cool slightly before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.


Tips and Tricks:


  • Asparagus Prep: Ensure the asparagus is well-drained to prevent a soggy quiche.

  • Goat Cheese: For easy spreading, bring the goat cheese to room temperature before crumbling.

  • Crust Perfection: For a no-sog bottom, blind bake the crust for about 10 minutes before adding the filling.

  • Egg Mixture: Gently whisk to combine without overbeating to avoid incorporating too much air.

  • Freshness: Use the freshest asparagus you can find for the best flavor and texture.

  • Cheese Variety: Feel free to substitute part of the goat cheese with another cheese like Parmesan for a flavor twist.

  • Cooking Asparagus: If you prefer crisper asparagus, add it to the quiche without blanching.

  • Cooling Time: Let the quiche rest for a few minutes after baking. This helps it to set, making it easy to slice.

  • Serving: This quiche can be enjoyed hot, at room temperature, or even cold.




This Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quiche is perfect for a springtime brunch or a light lunch. Follow these tips and tricks, and you'll have an exquisite dish that is as beautiful to look at as it is delicious to eat!
