There is no breakfast more comforting then dippy eggs with soldiers, and asparagus is natures perfectly designed soldier which is probably why is pairs so perfectly with eggs. I also like to pile the egg and asparagus onto rice cakes. YUM. So hey presto there it is boiled egg and asparagus!
In addition to being totally delicious eggs are an excellent source of quality protein and one of the few food sources of vitamin D. When buying eggs there are only two labels you need to look for: organic and free range. This means the eggs are lower in inflammation-causing omega-6 fatty acids and higher in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients like vitamins A, E, and beta-carotene.
Most people have their own method of boiling an egg. I keep my eggs in the fridge, which a friend recently pointed out to me was totally unnecessary. If supermarkets don’t keep eggs in the fridge then why should we? But it’s the habit of a lifetime now, and the storage in my kitchen just works better if I do. If you don’t have your own method for boiling an egg then this is mine, but you will need to reduce the timings by 1 minute if you are a non-fridge egg keeper.
