Hello you foxes! Thanks for reading my first ever blogpost on Fit Ginger Eef. Today’s post is all about my green asparagus breakfast. I used to hate asparagus, like I was actually disgusted by it’s smell and taste. Those weren’t the only things I hated! But you guys, bare with me whilst I try to overcome my vegetable and fruit anxiety.
When I told my mom I was making green asparagus for breakfast she looked at me and said: are you out of your mind? Who in the world eats asparagus for breakfast (especially try to say this with an agitated voice)?? Like who doesn’t? I know, what do you mean right?But let’s get back to the essence of the post:asparagus for breakfast.
Normally I just cook asparagus in water for about 3 minutes. I always take the small ones because the big ones tend to be more difficult to make. This time I ‘grilled’ them in a non-stick pan for about 3-4 minutes, making sure every part of the asparagus was grilled. It was amazing! Loved every single bite. I topped those off with a poached egg and some toasted whole wheat bread.
- 6 spears green asparagus
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp vinegar (you can use the cheapest one)
- 1 slice of whole wheat/rye bread
- 1 tsp olive oil/coconut oil
- Sea salt and pepper
- Parmesan cheese
Put water in a pan, add the vinegar and bring to boil.Reduce heat and bring to a simmer. Take a spoon and start circling around in the pan. Add the egg in the ‘eye’ of the cirkel and leave it for about 3 minutes, depending on how well cooked you want it to be.
In the meantime, put on a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and once warm, add the asparagus. Season with peper and salt if desired. Make sure all the side are grilled well. They are ready when they changed color. I leave them grilling for about 3-4 minutes.
Toast your slice of bread, place the asparagus on your toast, the poached egg and top off with some Parmesan cheese.
