Green Baked Eggs with New Season Asparagus

Serves: 2

You will need

2 tsp olive oil 
2 x 200g packs Asparagus, trimmed and cut into 4cm lengths 
Bunch salad onions, roughly chopped 
2 garlic cloves, crushed 
1 tsp cumin seeds 
1 pointed spring cabbage, halved and shredded (thick core discarded) 
1 green chilli, sliced 
Few drops lemon juice 
20g feta cheese, crumbled 
4 Eggs



Directions

1. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Add 1 tsp oil, season the asparagus and fry, turning now and then, until charred in places, for about 3 minutes; lift out of the pan and set aside.

2. Lower the heat, add the remaining 1 tsp oil and sauté the salad onions, garlic and cumin for 1 minute. Throw in the cabbage and ½ the chilli, season and fry for 3 minutes, tossing regularly. Add the lemon juice, ½ the feta and the asparagus. Turn the heat to medium-low.

3. Using a spoon, make 4 holes in the mix of vegetables, then crack in the eggs. Cover the pan with a large sheet of foil (it doesn’t need to be very tight) and leave for 5-7 minutes, until the whites are set but the yolks are still soft. Uncover, take off the heat and season the eggs. Serve scattered with the remaining chilli and feta.
