Asparagus and poached eggs brunch

Hi guys!

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!!

Ingredients:

-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

-Pepper

-White vinegar

-Salt

-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.


Enjoy!
