Cupid’s Spears

Serves 2

Apart from the wonderful flavour, the best thing about asparagus is the sensual feeling of eating it: the sauce dripping down your chin, the feel of those lovely sprigs in your hands. This is love in a bowl.

2 free-range, organic eggs
8 asparagus stalks
3 tbspns walnut oil
1 tbspn cider vinegar
1 tbspn finely-chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Put the eggs onto boil for 6 minutes. Drain immediately and cool in running cold water.

Peel, cool again if not totally cold and set a side.

Trim the asparagus and put into boiling water for about 6 minutes until the tips are just cooked.

Drain, cool in running cold water and drain again. Set a side.

To make the dressing, mix the oil, vinegar and parsley well.

Finely chop the eggs.

To serve, arrange the asparagus on a dish.
Scatter over the eggs.
Pour over the dressing.

Michael’s tip
Don’t throw away the water in which you’ve cooked the asparagus. It makes a wonderful addition to home-made stock or as a liquid to use for cooking potatoes, Jerusalem artichokes or spaghetti.
