With the sun blazing, it's obvious a barbecue will be happening later. We plan to have a meaty dinner, so lunch was to be a light dish. The weather brings out the asparagus. Like all vegetables in season, you can't beat the flavour. So what better way to eat this than with humble surroundings - poached eggs. We tried both duck and hen's eggs and I sprinkled a little cheese on mine. We preferred the duck egg for this dish as they were so rich and creamy and complimented the asparagus perfectly.
The dish, with a slice of toast on the side, was around 400 calories, which leaves plenty of room for later.
