Tortilla Crusted Goat Cheese & Asparagus Quiche

This recipe was in the Everyday with Rachael Ray Magazine. It was very good.

Four 7-inch whole wheat tortillas( I used Ezekiel wraps)
 10 asparagus stalks, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
 1/2 red onion, finely chopped( I used a yellow onion)
 4 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 1 1/2 cups)
Salt and pepper
 One 4-ounce log goat cheese
 3 eggs
 1/2 cup plain yogurt, preferably

( I used Dannanon full fat plain)

Roast the unused asparagus alongside the quiche for 15 minutes and refrigerate to keep on hand as a healthy snack.

Directions:Preheat the oven to 375°. In a greased 9-inch pie plate, overlap the tortillas to make a crust; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Meanwhile, fill a large nonstick skillet a third of the way with salted water; bring to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, about 1 minute; drain, rinse under cold water and pat dry.

Wipe out the skillet, add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms are golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in the asparagus; season with salt and pepper. Spread evenly in the tortilla crust, then crumble the cheese on top.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and yogurt and season with salt and pepper; pour into the tortilla crust. Bake on the baking sheet until just set in the center and lightly golden, about 30 minutes. Let rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
