Print Asparagus and Gruyère quiche
This quiche is good hot, warm or cold. It's a lovely way of eking out a small quantity of asparagus while keeping it the star of the meal. If you'd like to cut corners, use good bought shortcrust pastry instead of making it.
To vary the filling, try adding bacon, fried mushrooms or slowly caramelised leeks. The sweet nuttiness of Gruyère is particularly lovely with asparagus. Parmesan or a mild Cheddar would also work, but it's best not to substitute with anything too robust.
Its a good idea to make the pastry for this tart in advance, as it will need at least half an hour of chilling.
