Sauteed Asparagus, Poached Eggs and Yogurt Sauce


I hope you had a great time with your loved ones this past Mother's day! I had a blast! It was a very especial day. Everybody in my family gathered for a delicious brunch. Best part? I didn't do a thing :) I just showed up and had fun! 



I also received the coolest "card". It was this cute little basket filled with everybody's individual messages for me, every mom got one. I thought it was very sweet as well as original. 


Later this week, after a trip to the Farmers' Market I prepared our own brunch at home. Sauteed asparagus, poached eggs and yogurt sauce. The asparagus just tasted so fresh, it didn't need much. Oh Farmers' Market, how much I love you!





Ingredients:

Poach eggs:

Fill a medium pot (wide) with three or four inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer over medium low heat. Add an splash of white vinegar, this will help the egg white stay together. Crack and egg into a small bowl. Carefully slide the egg into the pot. Poach for 2 to 3 minutes (do not allow the water to boil) then remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. 

The asparagus:

1 bunch of asparagus, bottoms trimmed
olive oil
salt and pepper

In a sauté pan, add 2 tablespoon of olive oil and then add the asparagus, salt and pepper. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.

The yogurt sauce

1/2 cup plain yogurt 
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Assemble by putting 
the asparagus first, poached eggs on top and then yogurt sauce.

  4. Yum! Just about to publish the same kind of recipe..with a bit of avocado and lots of aromatic herbs. Too bad asparagus don't last longer in the season!
