Asparagus, Thyme, Spring onion and Gruyere Quiche

  
I love a good quiche as they are easy to make, versatile in terms of ingredients, and  taste absolutely delicious. I have used my favourite vegetables and herb in this version, which uses asparagus, thyme and spring onion, and made it that extra bit special with my favourite cheese, Gruyere cheese.

Makes enough for 1 big ramekin or 2 small ramekins. I used a Denby Ramekin.*

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 5 egg whites
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated gruyere cheese
  • 8 thin asparagus stalks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • Olive oil

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Grease the ramekin with olive oil.
  3. Place the eggs, egg whites, cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme and spring onions in a food processor and blitz.
  4. Cut 4 asparagus stalks in half, and reserve 4 to garnish the ramekins with later.
  5. Put the 4 cut asparagus stalks in the ramekin and drizzle olive oil over it.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over them until the ramekin is 3/4 filled.
  7. Place the ramekin on a baking tray, and beside it place the extra asparagus stalks. Drizzle oil over the asparagus.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
  9. Once ready, carefully put the 4 asparagus stalks on top to decorate it.
  10. Season with a little salt and pepper and eat hot.

*The Denby Ramekin I used is in Jet Black and is available from Denby online as well as some stores. http://www.denby.co.uk/premium-cookware/jet-black-ceramic-2pc-ramekinsouffle/invt/023010721
