Make your favorite pie crust or if you like to cheat a little line your pie pan with a pre-made refrigerated pie crust.
Prepare quiche batter by whisking liquids, eggs, flour, baking soda, salt and pepper together. This can also be done in a blender to whip even more air into the mixture.
Line the pie crust with cheese and top with spinach. Pour batter over, add asparagus and grate additional cheese on top..
Bake at 375 until a toothpick comes out cleanly, about 40 min.
Serve with a fresh spring green salad.
