Coming in hot today with an easy quiche recipe just in time for Easter!

 

Do you have any Easter plans? It seems so odd to not be going to church this year or seeing any family. I know Easter isn’t “canceled” and as a Christian, it’s not about a roasted ham and an egg hunt, but it still feels odd to be staying at home alone and knowing that I’ll honestly end up working in the afternoon (which is all I’m doing these days to pass the time until the world is safe again.)

It seems so odd to have been living in isolation for almost 4 weeks now. I’ve found a good routine that’s been working for me, but I’m definitely feeling the struggle of looking for food a little too much. My stomach is begging for a little relief here because I went ham on a bag of cashews after not eating nuts for 8 months. (Oops.)

 

I’m trying to focus on cooking healthy recipes that lighten the mood and feel a bit more like spring, thus this quiche. Some of you may remember my Blueberry Pork Frittata obsession of 2018 (tbh it’s still a very real obsession). Well 2020 is the year of the pear & asparagus combo (but make it a quiche.) Mark my words.

What is a quiche?

I’m adding this in here because two years ago I was the person who didn’t know what a quiche was. My family NEVER made one, so how was I to know? Basically it’s an egg bake in a pit crust, or, in this case, an egg and veggie bake in a grain-free crust.

Tip for making this Spring Asparagus Pear Quiche:

  • Don’t overbake the crust on the first 10 minute go-around since It’ll be back in the oven with the filling.
  • Don’t skimp on the nutritional yeast! This is a big flavor-add.
  • You can use any dairy-free milk you’d like in the filling (or dairy-full if you’re that kinda gal.)
  • You could use apple instead of pear if you’d like!
