Asparagus, kale, crabmeat quiche

Today is trivia, which means dinner at our place. I have some asparagus I've been holding on to from the farmshare, and thought I would make some quiche. I also had some extra kale and a can of crabmeat. (I actually made two quiches, one with and one without crabmeat)

I DID cheat by buying the piecrust at the store instead of making it (I blame staying two hours late at work)


3 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp butter
1/2 bunch asparagus trimmed and cut into two inch pieces
1/2 bunch kale with stems removed cut into 1 inch strips
1/2 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh taragon
1 can crabmeat
1 cup grated swiss cheese

sautee the onion and garlic in butter til browned, then add the kale and asparagus, turn heat to medium and cover. Cook asparagus and kale until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste

Put the veggie mixture in a prebaked pie shell. add taragon, crumble canned crabmeat over the mixture and sprinkle with cheese.

In a bowl combine egg and cream. Pour egg mixture over the veggies and bake at 350 for 45-55 min until set.

  1. Just wanted to say I made this today and it was delish! I substituted almond milk for the heavy cream and I used Egg Beaters instead of Eggs. 221 calories of wonderful! Thanks for sharing this.
