Ingredients
 

Quiche Crust

  • 1 ½ cup (190 g) all-purpose flour or spelt flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ stick (110 g) cold butter or dairy-free butter/margarine
  • 1 egg beaten

Quiche Filling

  • 10.5 ounces (300 g) green asparagus
  • 3.5 ounces (100 g) brie cheese sliced
  • a bunch fresh dill chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) heavy cream or dairy-free heavy cream
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Instructions
 

Quiche Crust

  • Mix all-purpose flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the cold butter in pieces and mix on low speed, with the flat beater attached, until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add the egg and mix at low speed until it comes together to a dough.
  • Use your hands to form it into a disc or ball. Warp with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes (up to two days). Place it on a floured working surface and roll it, using a rolling pin, into a round quiche crust. Transfer into a 9-inch quiche pan and gently press the dough into place using your hands.

Quiche Filling

  • Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  • Trim the rough ends of the asparagus. Set aside 6 asparagus and cut the remaining into 1-2 inch (3-5cm) pieces. Arrange the asparagus pieces and sliced brie onto the quiche crust. Decorate with the remaining asparagus.
  • Mix the eggs, heavy cream, fresh dill, salt, and pepper in a bowl and pour over the filling.
  • Bake for 30 minute in the prehated oven until golden brown.

Notes

  • Keeps fresh for 3-4 days. Store it in an airtight container, or simply wrap the cold tart pan with plastic wrap/aluminum foil (easiest to reheat), in the refrigerator.
  • Reheat for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven (390°F/200°C).
  • Dairy-Free: Use dairy-free heavy cream, dairy-free butter, and dairy-free cheese!
  • Gluten-Free: Use gluten-free flour or a store-bought gluten-free pie crust!
  • Brie Cheese: Can be substituted with Camembert, Goat cheese or Gruyère, Cheddar, Swiss Cheese.
  • Egg Replacement: The egg for the quiche crust can be replaced with 3-5 tablespoons of cold water - although the crust won't turn out as crispy as when using an egg. Unfortunately, you can’t replace the eggs in the quiche filling as they are needed for the texture!
