Asparagus Quiche

Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. When it’s cooked well, it has a sweet taste like candy and a snappy crunch like no other. Truthfully, I get overjoyed thinking about it.

Speaking of overjoyed, I recently hit 1,000 fans on my Facebook page! I can’t thank you enough for the support you’ve shown this little blog of mine. It makes me want to celebrate!

When it comes to celebrations, most people would say that a cake is in order, but I’m going to twist things up and celebrate by sharing a recipe for my favorite veggie, in a pie form.

I’m sharing my recipe for asparagus quiche!

Truthfully, I find it sort of strange that I’m so into pie as an adult, because as a kid, I was definitely not into pie.  Back in the stone age when I was a kid, if someone had placed a slice of pie (be it savory or sweet) and a slice of cake in front of me, I would have plunged my fork straight into the chocolate ganache frosting on the cake.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not a cake snob.  I love a banana split cake roll or a moist mocha cinnamon roll pound cake as much as the next girl. But lately, I’d rather stuff my pie hole with… well, pie! And asparagus quiche is definitely a pie, although it’s a savory egg pie instead of a sweet pie.

I love sweet dessert pies like cherry (with a big scoop of ice cream, please!) or chocolate silk, but seriously… What’s not to love about fluffy eggs and cheese combined with just about any filling you could want, all nestled into a tender, flaky crust?

If you’ve never tried quiche (or even if you have!), I hope you’ll give this cheesy asparagus quiche a try.
