Grilled asparagus and poached egg is our second recipe in these series of posts and it comes with a twist!

Serves 2


300g asparagus

2 tsp olive oil, for drizzling

pinch of salt

2 free-range eggs

black pepper


Heat the grill to its highest setting.

Snap off and discard the woody ends of the asparagus.

Lay the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle the oil over it.

Sprinkle with the salt and toss well to coat.

Grill for 8 minutes, checking the spears halfway through the cooking time and giving them a shake so they cook evenly.

Poach the eggs in boiling water for 3 minutes so that the white is set but the yolk runny.

Place the asparagus on serving plates and put an egg on top of each serving.

In case you desire to give it a lift, opt for a MISO Hollandaise sauce on the side.
Miso hollandaise is made without butter, but has all the creamy richness of the French classic.

4 tbsp miso paste

2 tsp rice vinegar

3 tsp lemon juice

Put all the ingredients into a bowl or blender and whizz to make a smooth sauce.

Use immediately, or store in a  jar in the fridge until needed.
