On the weekends, I love starting the day with a nice breakfast. I particularly cherish this time alone in the kitchen in the early morning. It’s a little moment of happiness where everything is quiet and you feel good about creating something tasty for your loved one. I feel the sun shining through the window on my back, take a deep breath, and feel ready to face another day with nothing but positivity.
Ingredients for 2
How I cook it
- Wash the tomatoes and asparagus
- Carefully bend the asparagus (piece by piece) until it breaks in two. Throw away the bottom half
- Grate a (small) handful of Parmigiano
- Heat up a pan, and add some olive oil
- Fry the asparagus for a good seven minutes.
- Stir regularly
- Season with salt and pepper
- Fry the parma ham.
(As delicious but healthier than bacon!)
- Once nice and crispy, mix the asparagus and parma ham and slide all to one side of the pan making room for the eggs.
- Crack the eggs into the pan
- Place the cherry tomatoes in the pan, as to heat them up
- Season the eggs with some salt and pepper
- Sprinkle the Parmigiano over the eggs and the asparagus/parma ham mix.
- Continue to cook the eggs until the whites are set but the yolk is still runny (but warm!).
- Serve with bread
- Green asparagus does not need to be peeled when they are thin. Don’t you love it when you save time!
- Make sure to yolk is runny but hot!
Potential Pregnancy Benefits
Asparagus is a rich source of vitamin B9, B complex, K, C and A. Not to mention, asparagus contains a ton of folic acid! The vegetable is rich in fiber which can help when one is suffering from constipation. I recently even read that asparagus is also known to promote fertility so perhaps I should include it in my diet even more regularly!
Eggs are a good source of protein, vitamin D, A, B2 and iodine.
