Spring is finally sprung! The first of the new season British asparagus was delivered in our riverford veg box today and never having been someone to resist temptation it was scoffed in this simple recipe as a starter. My only complaint was that there wasn’t enough!!
For 2 people as a starter you need:
1 bunch asparagus
bread and butter
salt and pepper
Snap the asparagus and wash. Lay in a steamer and steam for 2-3 mins till tender. Meanwhile poach 2 eggs (you do know how to do that don’t you??!). Lay the asparagus on a plate, top with the egg and season. Serve with buttered toast on the side. Glorious!
