Hearty Asparagus Pie Recipe: How to Make It

This hearty quiche is as attractive as it is flavorful! It looks complicated to make but is actually a simple recipe. The secret is the crust – it’s refrigerated pizza dough that I season with basil and Parmesan cheese. But the asparagus spokes are what make this pie special for the holidays. It almost seems too nice to cut, but we’re always glad we did when we taste a slice.

Asparagus Quiche

A simple egg quiche loaded up with asparagus and cheese. Pair with my favorite homemade pie crust or go crustless!

Provided by: EasyRecipesCooking.com

Yield: 8


½ recipe homemade pie crust (store bought is fine; thawed and chilled)
1 Tablespoon (13mL) olive oil
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
14 medium size asparagus spears (approximately 12 ounces untrimmed)
6 large eggs
1 cup (240mL) milk
4 ounces (113g) cheese (I used mozzarella)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF (177ºC). Set out a 9″ x 2″ pie dish.
  • On a floured work surface, roll out the chilled pie dough. Turn the dough about one quarter of a turn after every few rolls until dough is in a circle approximately 12″ in diameter. Carefully place the dough into the pie dish. Use your fingers to tuck it in and make it smooth. If you need to trim the edges, use a small paring knife to do so. Flute the edges with your pointer finger knuckle of one hand and thumb and pointer finger of the other. Place pie plate in the freezer while you cook the asparagus.
  • Remove the bottom third of the asparagus stalks and discard. Cut the remaining ⅔ of the stalks into 4 pieces. You will have about 1 cup of sliced asparagus.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When it is heated, pour in the olive oil, garlic, and asparagus, and cook until asparagus just starts to get tender, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Remove pie crust from the freezer. Prick the crust a few times with a fork, then line the crust with parchment paper and dried beans or a pie chain/pie weights. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. While the crust bakes, prepare the rest of the filling
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until smooth. Stir in the cheese, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  • When crust is done baking, remove from oven, remove pie weights and parchment, and place asparagus on the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg and cheese mixture over the asparagus, then place a pie shield around the crust to prevent over-browning. You may also use foil. Bake the quiche for 50-55 minutes or until egg is set in the center. Allow to cool 20 minutes before serving. Store leftovers covered tightly in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Quiche freezes well, up to 2 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight.

Chicken, leek and asparagus pie | Tesco Real Food

This pie uses the whole bird – including the bones in the delicious gravy – so you can guarantee that no chicken goes to waste

Provided by: EasyRecipesCooking.com

Total time: 2 hours 10 minutes

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 2 hours 0 minutes

Yield: 6


2 large leeks
2 bunches of asparagus (500g)
1.5kg whole free-range chicken
olive oil
2 heaped tbsp plain flour
4 tarragon sprigs
100ml soured cream
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
500g block of shortcrust pastry
egg or milk, for brushing (optional)


  • Halve the leeks, wash and roughly slice the green part and finely slice the white part. Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus, then finely slice the stalks, leaving the tips whole. Put the green parts of the leek and the asparagus ends into a large deep pan with a pinch of sea salt, sit the chicken on top and cover with cold water. Place the pan over a high heat and bring just to the boil. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and simmer gently, skimming off any scum that rises to the top, for 1 hr or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. Lift the chicken out onto a board and allow to cool.
  • Bring the poaching stock to the boil. Shred the chicken and set aside, discarding the skin, then add the bones and carcass to the pan and boil for 20 mins.
  • Meanwhile, place a large, deep frying pan on a medium-low heat with 1 tbsp olive oil, add the remaining leeks and finely sliced asparagus, and cook for 10 mins until softened. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 min.
  • Strain the chicken stock through a fine sieve into a bowl, then gradually add to the frying pan, stirring, until smooth. Simmer until thickened and season to taste.
  • Strain the filling through a colander into a large bowl (save this to serve as a delicious gravy later) and leave to cool completely. Roughly chop the tarragon and stir through the cooled mixture with the cooked chicken, asparagus tips, soured cream and mustard. (At this point you could put the filling in the fridge, ready to assemble the following day.)
  • Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Lightly grease a 22cm pie dish with olive oil. Roll out two-thirds of the pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper to just a few millimetres thick, then use it to line the dish – allowing the excess pastry to hang over the sides. Spoon in the filling, then roll out the remaining third of the pastry the same way and lay over the top. Trim the edges, then seal with your thumb and finger or a fork and make a small incision in the centre to let the steam escape. Brush with egg or milk, if you like, and bake at the bottom of the oven for 30 mins or until golden. Heat the reserved pie gravy to pour over. Delicious served with peas and mashed potato.
