Ingredients
  

Pie Crust

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter cold, cubed
  • 6 tablespoons ice cold water

Filling

  • 8 spears asparagus ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup havarti cheese (or any mild melty cheese), grated
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375F. To make crust, add flour and salt in food processor. Add cold butter and pulse until it resembles a coarse meal. Add 6 tablespoons of ice cold water and pulse a few times. The dough should be beginning to clump together. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead into a ball. Flatten down into a disk and using a floured rolling pin, roll it out to be slightly larger than your pie dish.
  • Carefully transfer onto pie plate and trim any excess dough. Crimp the edges or decoate the edges any way you prefer. Pierce the bottom of the pie crust with a fork. Place a piece of parchment paper over the bottom and sides of the pie crust and use pie weights to hold it down. Place in the oven to blind bake for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the eggs, cheese, milk, thyme, salt and pepper. Whisk together.
  • Remove pie crust from the oven and carefully remove the pie weights and parchment. Arrange the asparagus pieces, peas and green onion onto the crust. Pour the egg filling on top of it. Put back in the oven and bake for approximately 40-45 minutes or until set.

Notes

  • See "Tips to prepare the perfect pie crust" section in my blog for instruction if you do not have a food processor.
