Quiche with Goat Cheese and Asparagus

Quiche with Goat Cheese and Asparagus

Quiche is considered old-fashioned French fare, but similar crusted custards date back to 14th Century England. Our quiche recipe is rich, but it can also be healthy to eat, provided you don’t devour the whole thing! It’s chock-full of great ingredients like asparagus, creamy goat cheese, milk, thyme, and onion. While a store-bought pie crust will work, we recommend making your own crust with real butter, flour, salt and water.
