Free Healthy Recipe - Poached Eggs with Asparagus and shaved Goats Cheese

Dairy free, Low carbohydrate, Low fat, Low sugar, Wheat Free

The beauty of this simple dish is that it can be made in one steamer sitting over a wok with hot water. There are so few dishes the words "can't be bothered" simply won't apply. Buy free range eggs always - not only will the hen have enjoyed a good life but the taste is incomparable.


Heat 1 cup of water in a wok. Lay a large bamboo steamer over the top and bring the water to the boil.

Oil 2 small Pyrex dishes and crack an egg into each one. Place the eggs into the steamer. Cover and steam for 4 minutes. Drop the asparagus around the edges of the steamer and steam for a further 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat. Lay the asparagus on a dinner plate. Arrange the eggs on top then using a potato peeler shave the goat's cheese over the top. Season with cracked black pepper and serve.

Tip: Eggshell contains thousands of tiny ports which can absorb odours. Keep them fresh for weeks by storing them in the carton or the egg section of the fridge.
