    1. Prepare the Crust:
      In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg and cold water, then bring the dough together into a ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    2. Prebake the Crust:
      Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to fit your quiche pan. Press it into the pan, trimming any excess. Line the crust with parchment paper and fill with baking beans. Blind bake for 15 minutes. Remove the parchment and beans and bake for an additional 5 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and set aside.
    3. Prepare the Filling:
      In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, crumbled goat cheese, salt, black pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg until well combined.
    4. Assemble the Quiche:
      Scatter the bite-sized asparagus pieces over the prebaked crust. Pour the goat cheese and egg mixture over the asparagus, spreading it out evenly.
    5. Bake the Quiche:
      Bake the quiche in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the filling is set and lightly golden on top.
    6. Rest and Serve:
      Let the quiche rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. This allows the filling to set completely. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
    Pro Tips
    • Fresh Asparagus: Choose thin, tender asparagus for quicker cooking and a more delicate texture.
    • Crust Perfection: For a flakier crust, freeze the crust in the pan for about 15 minutes before blind baking.
    • Elevate the Flavor: Consider adding a handful of sautéed shallots or caramelized onions to enhance the quiche’s taste profile.
    • Make-Ahead Option: Prepare the crust and filling separately a day ahead. Assemble and bake the quiche just before serving for a fresh-from-the-oven experience.
