In this springtime special, we’re making quiche, a type of savory tart with a hearty egg filling. What makes quiche so amazing is the textural contrast between its flaky crust, lightly crispy, crustless top and soft, moist interior. Quiche is also endlessly customizable, making it an ideal dish through which to celebrate seasonality. Here, we’re mixing sautéed leek and asparagus into the creamy filling, then topping the mixture with tangy goat cheese before baking the tart in the oven.

Asparagus & Leek Spring Quiche with Goat Cheese & Arugula Salad ingredients
  • 4 Farm Eggs
  • 1 Pie Crust
  • 8 Ounces Low-Fat Milk
  • 5 Ounces Arugula
  • 3 Scallions
  • 1 Bunch Asparagus
  • 1 Leek
  • 1 Lemon
  • 4 Ounces Goat Cheese
  • 2 Ounces Gruyere Cheese
  • 1 Shallot
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Trim off and discard the root ends and upper, dark-green leaves of the leek. Halve the leek lengthwise; thoroughly rinse between the layers with cold water. Medium dice the leek. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions. Snap off and discard the woody ends of the asparagus; cut the asparagus stalks into ¼-inch pieces, leaving the pointed tips intact. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Grate the Gruyere cheese. Peel and mince the shallot to get 2 tablespoons of minced shallot (you may have extra). In a medium bowl, combine the minced shallot and the juice of all 4 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper. Crumble the goat cheese.

3 Make the filling & dressing:

While the vegetables cook, crack the eggs into a large bowl; beat until smooth. Whisk in the milk and Gruyere cheese; season with salt and pepper. Add the cooked vegetables; stir to thoroughly combine. Set aside. Whisk 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the shallot-lemon juice mixture until well combined.

Assemble & bake the quiche:
