Brie and Asparagus Quiche

Surprisingly, because it isn't the season for them, there were bunches of asparagus in the shops this week, and at a pretty reasonable price. No I didn't do terribly immoral things by buying asparagus from the other side of the world... no, these had a pretty ok carbon footprint having come from Spain.

So... what to make for a winter dinner with friends, using this delicious vegetable? I know...

Brie and Asparagus Quiche

1 cup cream or sour cream
1 bunch of asparagas (500g)
200g brie
salt & pepper
3 eggs
300g shortcrust pastry

  • Roll out the pastry and line a ceramic or glass quiche dish.
  • Lay out the asparagus and tuck slices of brie between.
  • Mix eggs & cream till nicely blended. Season with salt and pepper
  • Pour egg mix into the quiche dish
  • Bake in an oven at 200 degrees C for 25-30 minutes until nicely browned.
  • Serve warm or cold as you like... delicious!

This looks great. My dad's been on a real quiche kick (strange but true). I'll have to make this the next time he comes to town!

Looks yummy ... I'll keep it in mind when asparagus season starts.

Subject change, I hope the fires are keeping clear of all your friends and family back home in Oz.

oh. dear. me.

I really hadn't thought of just putting the cheese (brie no less!) in and pouring the egg over.

be still my clogging arteries!

This looks very nice...I love your recipes...and I will try to do something like the quiche (or cookies with brown sugar I like so much this flavors). In Brasil we also have a bound of fresh aspargus...can you imagine? It's very delicious :))
