Two Peas and Their Pod

Asparagus, Spinach, & Feta Quiche

Confession-I’ve never made a quiche before. Yes, I am posting an Asparagus, Spinach, and Feta Quiche recipe today, but Josh made it all by himself. I told Josh that I was in the mood for a spring quiche and he volunteered to make one, so I let him. He made the pie crust from scratch and used my favorite spring vegetable, asparagus, to create a glorious vegetarian quiche.

Josh used Dorie Greenspan’s pie crust recipe from Baking: From My Home to Yours to make the quiche, but you can use your favorite pie crust recipe or even use a store bought pie crust if you are short on time. The pie crust is filled with lots of spring green-asparagus, spinach, and green onions. Josh also added feta and mozzarella cheese.

The quiche was perfect in every way. The asparagus and spinach were the perfect addition to the savory custard filling. We enjoyed the quiche for Sunday brunch and heated up the leftovers for dinner the following day. It is good any time of the day.

I kind of feel like a bad food blogger because I have never made a quiche, but oh well, maybe next time I will make a quiche for Josh. Or maybe not since he did such a good job:)

This Asparagus, Spinach, and Feta Quiche is perfect for Easter brunch on Sunday. If you are looking for other Easter brunch recipes, here are a few of our favorites:

We hope you all have a happy Easter weekend!

Asparagus, Spinach, & Feta Quiche

Yield: Serves 8-10

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 65 minutes

A simple savory quiche made with asparagus, spinach, green onions, feta, and mozzarella cheese. This vegetarian spring quiche is great for brunch or dinner.

Ingredients:

1/2 tablespoon olive oil
8 asparagus spears, ends removed and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 cups fresh baby spinach
5 large eggs
1 cup milk
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 green onions, chopped
1 9-inch pie crust

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pie dough and stick in freezer while you prepare the other quiche ingredients.

2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the asparagus spears, and spinach. Cook until asparagus spears are slightly tender and spinach is wilted. Transfer spinach to a colander. Press firmly with the back of a spoon to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in the feta and mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

4. Remove pie crust from the freezer. Place asparagus pieces, spinach, and green onions on the bottom of the crust. Pour the egg and cheese mixture over the vegetables and into the crust.

5. Bake the quiche for 45 minutes or until quiche is set and slightly golden brown. Let quiche stand for 15 minutes before serving.

    So funny! My MIL and I were just talking about our love for egg bakes of all kinds yesterday. I’m going to send her this link. Perfect Easter breakfast.

    Your quiche looks gorgeous! Homemade pie crusts and I don’t get along all the time, so I do go for a storebought one. I love Wholly Wholesome-it doesn’t have a wierd store bought taste to it like some do. This would be great for breakfast Easter morning. Hope you and your family enjoy a happy Easter!

    Yum! Your quiche looks wonderful! I love that you added asparagus!! Have a great holiday weekend!

    I hope that your family enjoy a happy Easter. I love quiche and yours looks absolutely wonderful. I don’t ever use a homemade crust (I have some unique way of not making them not turn out, ever!) I use Wholly Wholesome crusts. They don’t have that weird store bought taste to them that some do. They are delish.
    Happy Easter Maria!

    I hadn’t made a quiche until just last year either! It’s just one of those things I forget about sometimes. But this sounds lovely! Awesome idea!

    Quiche is like the quintessential brunch item. And I LOVE it!
    Josh did a great job, although, I’d venture to say you’d probably do an awesome job too!

      You know Josh really wanted to make your bacon quiche, but he decided to make one I could eat too:) Have a great Easter!

    Just the recipe I needed, on the day I needed it! Looks delicious, can’t wait for Easter Brunch!

    I’ve never really been a quiche fan but we made a crustless spinach quiche last week that changed my opinion. We don’t have a lot of time to make pie crust these days with a little one running around. So, I usually use the frozen pie crusts at Trader Joe’s because they’re made with butter and don’t have that store bought taste.

    Tried this with Brie (didn’t have any Feta on hand) and it was WONDERFUL… probably the simplest quiche recipe I’ve seen (IDK why people try to complicate it with methods and all these extra ingredients!.) THANKS!

    • Two Peas replied: — April 6th, 2012 @ 12:31 pm

      I can’t wait to try it with brie! Great idea! Glad you liked the quiche!

    Yum! Josh sure can make a mean quiche. :) It’s been a while since I made one myself, Easter morning seems like a perfect time to remind myself how yummy they are!

    I love asparagus and this would be a huge brunch time hit.

    Happy Easter to you three!

    Love that you get your man to make you quiche – in England we used to say “Real Men don’t eat quiche!” but I guess they can make it.

    This looks AMAZING, and now I am craving quiche in the worst way! Think Josh will mail me one? :)

    Perfect for Easter brunch!

    Auntiepatch — April 6, 2012 @ 12:03 pm

    I can’t eat bacon or ham so I usually don’t get to eat quiche. I’m going to try this one! Thanks Josh!

  32. 32

    This just screams Easter brunch! We’re actually doing a brunch this year instead of our normal dinner and I wish I could convince my mom to make this instead of this potato + leek one, but she’s pretty darn set in her ways about that casserole…
    Have a great holiday!

    I love quiche. I wish my family would eat it. I think they don’t want it, just because it’s called “quiche.” I’m going to force it on them one of these days! I never thought of using feta in it, but it sounds like a fabulous idea!

    Well, Maria, we are kind of on the same wavelength! You’ve never made a quiche and I’ve never made one worth eating.
    I, however, and for once, happen to have all of those ingredients sitting in my fridge!
    I’m thinking my Quiche glory days may be approaching!
    MMMM
