  • Easy

Chorizo, fresh organic eggs and new season asparagus – a trio made even better when served with crispy chunks of sourdough too. 



50g cooking chorizo, diced
1/2tsp rapeseed oil
15g butter
8 spears of asparagus, woody stalks removed and sliced in half on an angle
2 spring onions, thinly sliced on an angle
2 organic eggs
1 slice sourdough, torn into chunks
pea shoots or fresh, roughly chopped parsley to garnish

Start by roughly chopping the chorizo into 2cm pieces and adding to a pan set over a medium heat with the rapeseed oil. Fry for a few minutes or until the chorizo starts to render some of its fat. Add half of the butter to the pan with the asparagus and a good pinch of salt. Cook gently for 1-2 minutes, tossing the pan every now and then before adding the spring onion. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes until the asparagus is just tender.

Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil, add a splash of vinegar and then turn down to a simmer. Gently crack in the eggs. Place a lid on the pan, remove from the heat and set aside for 4 minutes.

Remove the asparagus, spring onions and chorizo from a pan and divide between two plates. Return the pan to the heat with the remaining butter and torn sourdough. Fry for 1-2 minutes or until the bread has soaked up all the juices and is lovely and crispy. Scatter over each plate, pouring over any of the remaining pan juices too.

When the eggs are ready, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon, allowing any excess water to drain off. Place one onto each plate, scatter over your pea shoots or parsley and dive in.
