I loved making this gluten free asparagus quiche recipe for my family so I’m sharing the recipe with you for your family to enjoy as well. It’s dairy free friendly too so no one misses out 🙂
Fresh in-season asparagus, simple dairy free egg filling and homemade gluten free pastry crust.
I made the grain free pastry with cassava flour. Cassava flour is a made from the cassava root; a root vegetable. It is allergy friendly and a very close swap in place of wheat flour in gluten free baking.

Gluten Free Asparagus Quiche
- 1 cup cassava flour (see notes below)
- 1/2 cup coconut oil soft, not melted*
- 2 free range eggs room temp, whisked
- 6 large free range eggs
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
- 2 Spring Onion finely chopped
- Pinch sea salt
- Black Pepper
- 1/2 cup nitrate free bacon (optional)
- 1 bunch asparagus spears trimmed
- To make the pie crust, in a mixing bowl rub the soft coconut oil into the flour to resemble bread crumbs. *The coconut oil must be the consistency of butter (not melted). If it is melted, place in fridge to slightly firm up. If it is too hard, slightly warm to soften.
- Add eggs and salt to dough and combine well. Transfer to a sheet of baking paper. Top with a second piece of baking paper and roll out to 1/2 cm thick. If the dough is too soft to work with place in fridge to firm up.
- Line an oiled pie dish with the pastry dough. Use fingertips to mould into shape. Prick the base with a fork.
- Bake in oven a medium for 12-15 minutes.
- Meanwhile mix together filling. Whisk eggs with coconut milk. Mix in spring onions, salt pepper. Set aside.
- If adding bacon, sauté in a frying pan first. Add to egg mixture.
- Pour egg filling on top of quiche crust.
- Line asparagus across top of egg filling.
- Bake in oven at 180’C for 30-35 minutes or until egg is cooked through and golden.
