Egg and asparagus?
I’ve seen so many recipes for this combination lately that I decided to try it. After all, we are working on a once a week, meat free, meal plan. Why not? This winning asparagus recipe from wholeliving.com gave me a chance to see what I thought of this interesting combination.
- 1 medium thick asparagus bunch, tough ends removed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Coarse salt
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon light-brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 4 large eggs
- 2 ounces shaved parmesan
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a baking sheet with a rim, toss asparagus with oil. Season with salt. Bake until asparagus is lightly browned and tender, 15 to 18 minutes (timing will vary depending upon thickness of asparagus).
- In a small saucepan, cook balsamic vinegar and sugar over medium-high heat until syrupy and reduced to 3 tablespoons, about 6 minutes.
- Meanwhile, bring a large skillet with 2 inches of water to a simmer over medium heat. Add cider vinegar and season with salt. Break one egg at a time into a cup, then tip cup into pan. Simmer until whites are set and yolks are soft but slightly set, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spatula, scoop out eggs one at a time and drain on paper towels. With a paring knife, trim edges.
- Divide asparagus among four plates and drizzle with reduced balsamic. Top with shaved Parmesan and an egg.
