Asparagus – Gorgonzola Quiche

Ok, I have to admit,by definition, this is not actually a Quiche. But I don’t know what other name to use for this, so I just used Quiche, hoping no one would mind. I’ve been told it sounds very fancy, is very easy to make though.
Once you have dough settled you just mash the other ingredients together and but it in the oven.


For crust:
2 c whole grain flour
1,5 oz butter
2 tbs water

For filling:
3 eggs
3/4 cup creme fraiche
1 big carrot
1 onion (I prefer to use red or green onions but it doesn’t really matter)
1 garlic clove
1 tomato
1 celery stalk
3 green asparagus spear
1,5 – 3 oz Gorgonzola (or other blue cheese)

One a side note: Gorgonzola has quite a unique taste some love it and some hate it. So add as much suits your tastes. Children usually hate it so if you have children you may not want to add any at all or use cheddar or gouda instead.
As for the crust, you can also buy a frozen pie crust if you don’t want to make it yourself or are short on time

Pre heat oven to 350 °F. Add butter, water and flour to a thick mixture. Spray a ring tin with cooking spray and spread the dough evenly on its ground and inside walls, so the tin is completely covered.
Cut onions, carrot and asparagus and cook in water for 3 min. In the meantime wash and cut the tomato, garlic and celery stalk into pieces and mix in with eggs and creme fraiche. Remove the chopped onions, carrot and asparagus and add the mixture. Finally add slat, pepper and cheese and stir the egg mixture into the prepared crust.
Bake for 40 – 45 min.
