Crustless Asparagus Quiche

To Quiche or not to Quiche?

So this dish is a bit of a combination. It isn’t a true quiche, yet it also really isn’t a pie. So we are going to call it a crustless quiche and call it a day. Correctly titled or not, it is easy, delicious and perfect for Spring!

Begin by gathering all of your ingredients:

  • 1 pound of asparagus
  • 1/2 a cups of scallions, when chopped (approximately half a bunch)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of dry dill (or substitute 2 tablespoons of fresh dill)
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 Lemon (to yield 1 Tablespoon of lemon zest and 1/4 cup lemon juice)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2/3 cup of skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 2 large eggs

Assemble the Crustless Asparagus Quiche

Bake for around 30 minutes. Allow it to set for a few minutes before slicing.
