When my husband and I were first married, I used to make quiche several times a year. I am not sure why I have not made it in recent years but am happy I made some today!
If you are not a fan of asparagus, you can substitute spinach, broccoli, or cauliflower. This recipe comes together in about 30 minutes and can be made ahead and served at room temperature, heated in the microwave, or cold.
It is always great with a side salad or some freshly sliced tomatoes. You can also use any pie crust recipe or the refrigerated version.
This recipe makes 2 pie dishes and is good in the refrigerator for about a week. You can also slice it and freeze individual portions that can be defrosted and reheated in the microwave.
Now is the time! From now and through June is the best season to eat asparagus here in the USA! I created this recipe and although it takes a few steps, it is well worth the effort!
I would definitely recommend this for a comforting-yet-elegant dinner or even as a side or main dish for Easter!
Asparagus is a wonder-food! It is a great source of Vitamin K which is the vitamin that regulates blood clotting. However, if you are on a blood-thinning medication, it is advisable to check with your health-care provider to make sure asparagus is on your approved list.
In addition, asparagus is a great natural diuretic, nourishes the digestive tract, is a good source of fiber plus is considered an anti-inflammatory food with the extra bonus of being an antioxidant. All in all, this food should be showing up on your table a few times a month!
This dish comes together rather quickly…the risotto needs to be slow-cooked so try not to rush it!
