I had this one night as a light dinner when I hardly had anything in my fridge. I wouldn’t even call it a recipe as it is very easy to make. For a bit more flavour add some lightly grilled prosciutto and/or Parmesan cheese. It will be equally good for either breakfast or light lunch.
Ingredients (Serves 1):
- 1/2 bunch asparagus, washed and trimmed
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp pesto
- Fill a pot with water. Make sure you don’t add too much water – you only need enough to create steam. Place the asparagus in a steamer basket and put it inside the pot. Cover with a lid a steam for a couple of minutes – your asparagus should look bright green.
- Place it on a serving dish and top with a poached egg topped with pesto. Salt and pepper to taste.
