    Asparagus Soup is sponsored by Michigan Asparagus. Although I received compensation for this post, the opinions and statements are 100% my own. 

    Every year in June, Oceana County, Michigan (also nicknamed the “asparagus capital of the world”) holds the National Asparagus Festival. This festival has everything from pageants and a parade to farm tours asparagus taste testing.

    The growing season for asparagus is particularly short; because of this, people have found ways to preserve it for as long as possible. Some of these preserving techniques include pickling and freezing. In fact, around 60% of Michigan’s asparagus is frozen, canned or pickled.

    One of the things that I love most about asparagus is that there are SO many asparagus recipes out there! Whether it’s served by itself as a side or put into a salad, asparagus is versatile.

    Asparagus also has plenty of  health benefits including being fat and cholesterol free with nearly no sodium. It is also considered a good source of potassium, fiber, thiamin and vitamin B6. 

    Because of the low amount of pesticides used, asparagus is one of the safest crops to consume. It is one of the few foods that does not need to be purchased organic. More asparagus for all!

    Well, not if you are in my house. Asparagus happens to be my 8-month old daughter’s absolute favorite food. She practically ate this whole crustless quiche herself!

    A crustless quiche recipe is an especially healthy way to consume asparagus because it cuts down on carbs. This particular quiche uses the asparagus stalks to add some stability to the egg.

    This quiche is perfectly seasoned with staple ingredients that you more than likely already have in your pantry. Salt, pepper, garlic powder and Swiss cheese add a simple but delicious flavor. Asparagus has enough of its own, so we just want to complement, not overpower. 

    Beyond being healthy, this asparagus quiche has a beautiful braided frame made entirely of asparagus. The trick to this is cutting the stalks to 3-4 inches, then layer on each other the whole way around.  Use the cut pieces to bake into the quiche.

    Recipe Notes

    If you plan to line your crustless quiche with a frame, like mine, choose thinner stalks (they bend easier) and aim for about 15. Overlap them to create a frame, or a "princess crown" as my husband calls it.
