No-Crust Asparagus Quiche

This no-crust quiche is a quickie you can bust out on busy nights … especially easy when you have leftover cooked asparagus (or any other vegetable for that matter). It really focuses on the vegetables with just enough custard to hold it all together (very “nourishing!”). Leftovers are a treat reheated for breakfast or lunch another day.
