Asparagus Mushroom Quiche

As a mushroom growing enthusiast, I’ve always enjoyed incorporating fresh, homegrown ingredients into my cooking. One of my favorite recipes to showcase the earthy flavors of mushrooms is a delicious asparagus mushroom quiche. This savory dish combines the delicate flavors of asparagus, the rich umami of mushrooms, and the creamy texture of eggs and cheese. Whether you’re hosting a brunch or simply want to elevate your weeknight dinner, this quiche is sure to impress.


  • 1 pre-made pie crust
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 8 ounces of your favorite mushrooms, such as cremini or shiitake, sliced
  • 1 cup of shredded Gruyère or Swiss cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of nutmeg for added depth of flavor

These simple yet flavorful ingredients come together to create a quiche that’s perfect for any occasion.


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Place the pie crust in a pie dish and crimp the edges. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, sauté the mushrooms until they release their moisture and become golden brown. Add the asparagus and cook until it’s tender-crisp. Season with salt and pepper, then spread the mixture evenly in the pie crust.
  4. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the asparagus and mushrooms.
  5. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour this custard mixture over the vegetables and cheese in the pie crust.
  6. Bake the quiche for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is golden brown.
  7. Allow the quiche to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
