There are few things more emblematic of spring than sweet, fresh peas. This gourmet recipe uses the crop in two ways: we’re baking peas (alongside chard) into our fluffy quiches, which we’re pairing with a quick salad of pea shoots. This delectable, seasonal ingredient­—the first growths of the pea plant­—shines with just a splash of lemon vinaigrette. For a bit of sharpness, we’re also adding shaved Parmesan.
