Fancy Poached Eggs. An easy, filling, nutritious breakfast that takes minimal time. Serve with tender asparagus and wholemeal slims. Low in calories and still so satisfying. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 250 g asparagus ‘bundle’ (£1.45)
  • 6 eggs (£0.89)
  • 3 wholemeal thins (£0.55)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Garlic Granules
  • Chilli Flakes
  • Salt & Pepper

Method

Easy, filling, nutritious breakfast that takes minimal time. Prep the asparagus one morning and simply make the poached eggs and toasted thins on the remaining mornings.

  • Start by ripping off the tough part of the asparagus with your hands, it’ll naturally tear at the part you want to get rid of.
  • Add one tbsp of olive oil to a frying pan on a medium heat. Place the asparagus in the pan and shake so the oil coats the greens evenly.
  • Season with salt, pepper and a sprinkle of garlic granules.
  • Gently fry for around 10 minutes. You’ll know its finished when your fork can easily pierce the harder end of the asparagus.
  • Meanwhile, when the asparagus is almost finished, add two eggs to simmering water to poach for around a minute and a half. The egg will be ready when you lift out of the water and the white around the yolk is firm.
  • Store 2/3 of asparagus for other breakfasts during the week.
  • Serve up the asparagus and poached eggs onto a toasted thin. Top with some chilli flakes if you like some added heat and enjoy.
