Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 bunch asparagus, tough ends trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (roughly 2 cups)
  • 1 leek, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 9-inch prepared pie crust

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add asparagus and leek and sauté for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until asparagus is slightly tender. Season with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Greek yogurt, and milk. Season with remaining salt and pepper.
  4. Place prepared pie crust on a baking sheet (to avoid any spillage while baking). Sprinkle cheese evenly over crust. Top with asparagus and leek. Pour egg mixture over.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F until the edges are set but it still jiggles a little in the center, about 40-50 minutes.
  6. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
