asparagus quiche

I love asparagus season. I look forward to eating fresh asparagus every year. With so many foods now that you can eat all year round, it makes the few that are still seasonal all the more special.

This simple quiche is all about the asparagus.

I made a particular effort not to put onion, garlic, bacon or any other overpowering flavour in the quiche as I am wont to do and I was glad I cooked with restraint – the quiche was subtle but delicious. And very inexpensive
