Leek and Asparagus Quiche provides a delicious option for your next family brunch. With a pre-made shell, quiche is simple to make!
What is in asparagus quiche?
Here’s what I put in my asparagus quiche. You can alter this a bit and add different spices or even a different type of cheese if you want.
- Sour Cream
- Cheddar Cheese
I have so many memories wrapped up in quiche. I used it to eat the most delicious vegetarian quiche at the quaintest French restaurant in town. I would savor the delicious coffee and gobble down my quiche. Times have changed and I now need gluten-free quiche.
Thankfully, I’ve found a great local bakery that serves amazing gluten-free quiche. But when I am not up for traveling across the city for quiche, I can make my own. I figured it out.
It was not that hard! If you are looking for a good crust, check out this gluten free pie crust by What the Fork Food Blog!
Of course, you can make your own crust. BUT if you have a great pre-made gluten-free pie crust…even better!

What are Leeks?
Leeks are kind of like an onion, they are in that family. In fact, they look like overgrown green onions with thicker stalks.
When you cut up the leeks for this recipe, you will be discarding the darker green top part and just chopping the bottom of the leek.
They have a milder flavor than onions. If you can’t find leeks you can substitute with white onions, just don’t use very much or it will overtake the flavor of the quiche.
What part of the asparagus do you cook for the quiche?
The most tender part of the asparagus is the top. I don’t like a ton of huge pieces of veggies in my quiche, so I only use the tops and cut them up fairly small.
I am guessing that there probably won’t be any leftovers, but if there is a slice left…it does reheat well! But I am pretty sure the entire quiche will be gone before brunch is officially over!
Let’s get to this recipe!
Leek and Asparagus Quiche - think brunch!
- Place pie shell on a lipped baking sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a skillet over medium heat, warm the oil and gently saute the leeks and asparagus.
- In the bottom of the pie shell, gently place leeks and asparagus.
- Whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Pour into crust.

- Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean from your quiche when inserted. Let sit for 5 minutes. (This helps to absorb any moisture.)
