Asparagus and poached eggs brunch
Updated: Apr 18
Do you need a good idea for a nice but not too complicated Sunday brunch?
I have got the perfect recipe for you!
It's easy, under 15 min, it's very low calories and it looks and tastes amazing!!
-A pack of asparagus tips
-3 super fresh eggs (very important thing or they will not come out nicely!)
-Fresh mint leaves to serve
-Extra virgin olive oil
-Fresh lemon juice
-Put the kettle on and when the water is boiled pour half of it in a pot where you have previously tossed a whole pack of asparagus tips.
-Salt the water.
-Cover with a lid and cook for 6 minutes until tender.
-In another pot pour the rest of the boiled water and a few drops of white vinegar (don't add any salt as it will break the whites) and bring to simmer.
-Crack the egg inside a small bowl or a saucer: that will make the process of sliding it inside the pot a lot easier.
-Stir the water with a spoon to make a gentle whirlpool and slowly tip the first egg inside.
-Let it cook for 3 minutes without covering with a lid.
-Take the egg out with the help of a spoon and set aside.
-Do the same with the rest of the eggs, one by one.
-Serve the asparagus tips on a plate and squeeze a slice of lemon on them, then add the poached eggs on top.
-Season the dish with salt and pepper and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil.
-Nice touch: a couple of fresh mint leaves on top.
-Pair with two slices of good sourdough bread, better if toasted: it will make this meal even more filling and satisfying.
