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.

Blanch the peas:
2 Blanch the peas:

Add the peas to the pot of boiling water and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until bright green. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process; transfer to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pot.

Cook the chard:
3 Cook the chard:

In the pot used to cook the peas, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic and chard stems; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the chard leaves; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the chard leaves have wilted. Remove from heat.

Make the vinaigrette & filling:
4 Make the vinaigrette & filling:

While the chard cooks, season the shallot-lemon juice mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well combined. Set aside. Crack the eggs into a large bowl; season with salt and pepper and beat until smooth. Add the sour cream and 2 tablespoons of water; whisk until smooth. Add the blanched peas and cooked chard; season with salt and pepper and whisk until thoroughly combined.

Assemble & bake the quiches:
5 Assemble & bake the quiches:

Place the pie crusts on a sheet pan, leaving them in their tins. Divide the filling between the crusts (you may have extra filling) and top with the goat cheese; season with salt and pepper. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until the crusts have browned and the filling is cooked through. Remove from the oven and let stand for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Make the salad & serve your dish:
6 Make the salad & serve your dish:

Just before serving, in a large bowl, combine the pea shoots and Parmesan cheese; season with salt and pepper. Add enough of the vinaigrette to coat the salad (you may have extra vinaigrette); toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the baked quiches with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
