Ingredients

  • 8 ounces asparagus preferably thin spears, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the asparagus pieces and cook until tender when pierced with a fork, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain into a colander and rinse with cold water.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, egg whites, water, thyme, cottage cheese, salt and pepper. Whisk vigorously to break up the cottage cheese.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the prepared pie dish. Sprinkle the asparagus throughout the egg mixture, then top with the feta cheese.
  • Bake until the the egg is just set and a small, sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  • Let the quiche rest for 5 minutes, then cut into 6 wedges. Serve.
