Crustless Asparagus Quiche (Meatless Monday)

May 9th, 2010 · 10 Comments

Asparagus with eggs, take two… Yes, I have a thing for eggs and asparagus. While a traditional quiche is ideal for Sunday brunch, this crustless version is perfect for a fast weeknight supper — just serve with a side salad and some bread. Of course, if you’re more prepared than I, you can make this with a pre-made frozen pie crust.

1 bunch asparagus
2 stalks green garlic
4 large eggs

Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Sauté asparagus, stirring once or twice, until partly browned, about 8-10 minutes. Add garlic to pan for the last 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Fold in ricotta, then garlic and asparagus. Pour into baking dish and cook 25-30 minutes, until set and puffy. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving. Makes 6 servings. Enjoy!

    If you live in an region exactly where the temperatures turn into bitter chilly, your dog can put
    on coats and jackets over sweatshirts and sweaters.
    For the most part, dogs that spend most of their time indoors and
    have become accustomed to their controlled environment or older ones, that are a
    little more sensitive, may need extra protection like dogs
    sweaters in very cold weather. Forecasting is done in the business world all the time; on
    the personal financial side, it’s a little different.

    sleeper sofa you will like. as functionality and nature are the name of the game.
