Lately I´m very fond of asparagus, and more specifically, asparagus and egg combo 😉 I can eat it for breakfast, I can eat it for lunch or dinner. Doesn´t matter, because it tastes absolutely fabulous.
Wikipedia says “Water makes up 93% of asparagus’s composition. Asparagus is low in calories and is very low in sodium. It is a good source of vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc, and a very good source of dietary fibre, protein, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, rutin, niacin, folic acid, iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese and selenium”. So sounds like I picked a good vegetable to love 😉
I have done my asparagus-egg dish so many times this past month that I can´t remember what other foods taste like 🙂 This is my excuse for not writing a blog post for so long! Anyways, this is my perfect meal right here.
SERVES: 1-2 people
PREP+COOKING TIME: 20 min max
Half bunch asparagus (about 16 pcs)
1/4 cup milk
salt, spices, little bit of butter for frying
Fry the onion a little bit with butter.
Wash your asparagus and add it to the pan. Add a little bit of water to steam. Steam until the water is gone.
Use the fork to determine if the asparagus is half done, semi-soft. Usually in 5 – 7 minutes, when the water is all gone. If the asparagus is semi done, pour the egg mixture on top of it!
There are really no rules to this dish. Instead of an onion, you can use garlic. Instead of asparagus you can use some other vegetables. Instead of 2 eggs you can just use one or you can use more than 2.
