I LOVE quiche.  It’s basically a grown-up’s way of eating breakfast at any time of day and still being a respectable meal.  Asparagus is such a great sign of spring coming, and I thought, what a better way to highlight asparagus than making a beautiful quiche and pairing it with goat cheese?  The sharpness of goat cheese goes extremely well with asparagus.  And then I decided to season with some fresh parsley and chervil (dried).  Chervil is probably not an herb you have heard much of or use much, but I really like it, it is similar to parsley, but I think gives a bit fresher “green” taste.  I also used these herbs in my crust.

On the topic of gluten free crust, I tried something new, and TOTALLY did not work out.  It did what every other GF pie crust I have had does, and totally crumbled apart.  So I’m NOT giving you the recipe for what I made, but instead am giving you the recipe for what works and always works and what I should’ve done today instead of experimenting:

Very appealing picture! Great minds think alike! LOL! Spring just screams for quiche, doesn’t it? Especially with the newly green seasonal goods like asparagus, chives, chervil….. I tell myself that goat milk/products are better for me than bovine/cow, and goats are cuter, in my personal opinion.

Try my crust recipe and see how it works for you. I should have chilled it, then rolled it out as you did…..but sometimes, I’m impatient.
