Ingredients

  • 3 cups Spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 Onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 cup Cream
  • 5 Eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • Generous pinch black pepper
  • cups Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 12 Stalks of Asparagus, woody ends snapped off

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F).
  • Preheat a frying pan over medium-high heat, then add your spinach. Once the spinach has wilted, transfer it onto kitchen paper (paper towel) and set aside.
  • Wipe the inside of the pan with paper towel, or just clean it and get it back on the stove. Pre-heat the pan again over medium heat, then add your butter. Once the butter has melted and is bubbling, add your onions and saute them for about 2 minutes. 
  • Add your garlic and saute for another minute. Grab your spinach, squeeze as much excess liquid out as you can, then roughly chop it up on a chopping board. Finally, add your spinach and stir it through the buttery onions and garlic. Turn the heat off and set aside.
  • Put your heavy whipping cream in a large bowl, then use a whisk or an electric beater to beat the cream until soft peaks (thick enough to barely hold it's shape). Put in the fridge until you're ready to use it.
  • Use your extra butter to grease the inside of your pie dish. If you want to remove the quiche at the end, I recommend lining the pie dish with baking paper (parchment paper) and then greasing that paper with more butter, or by using cooking spray or by brushing on some olive oil.
  • Crack your eggs into a large mixing bowl then whisk until all the egg is well beaten.
  • Add a small pinch of salt, a generous pinch of black pepper, your cheddar cheese, your Parmesan cheese, your sun dried tomatoes and your spinach, onion and garlic mixture. Stir everything together until well combined.
  • Get your bowl of heavy whipped cream, then add it to your egg mixture. Then, slowly fold the whipped cream through the egg until you have a light, well combined mixture.
  • Transfer your quiche mix to the greased/lined pie dish. Neatly place your asparagus on top and then bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. 
  • To test if the quiche is fully cooked, stick a skewer or a toothpick  in the quiche and leave for 2 seconds. If the skewer or toothpick comes out clean, the quiche is ready to serve.

Notes

  • Be careful not to overwhip your cream.
  • Grease your pie dish well, or if you want to be 100% certain that the quiche won't stick, line the pie dish with baking paper and then grease the paper.
  • Cut the quiche with a sharp serrated knife. Use the length of your knife to cut so you get clean portions.
  • Don't be shy with the cheese.
  • This quiche should last in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
