Asparagus is in season! The briny combination of capers and cornichons pair beautifully with perfectly cooked asparagus and a poached farm egg. Please buy good eggs. You can afford the extra dollar and you can get them pretty much anywhere now!
🎍1 bunch asparagus, snapped with your fingers where it naturally breaks. This is where the fibrous part ends.
🎍1 handful parsley, chopped
🎍1 tablespoon capers, chopped
🎍4 cornichons, chopped
🎍salt and pepper
🎍zest of one lemon
🎍two eggs, poached
🎍mustard, for serving.
Steam the asparagus making sure not to overcook. It should be tender but still be firm.. Not soft or stringy at all. Run under cold water to stop the cooking, and that's really all there is to it! Serve at room temperature.
I'm known for my salads! And here is my favorite way to dress them perfectly. 🌱smear a tablespoon of mustard around the bottom of the bowl. It's such a nice flavor for the dressing but no one wants to hit a big patch of it so this ensures it goes on evenly without having to work the salad to death to combine🌱add your veg (arugula, radish, grated carrot, dill, parsley, cucumber and onion in this batch, lemon zest is optional) 🌱juice of half a lemon 🌱small drizzle of balsamic (you can always add more liquids but you can't take them back, so start small) 🌱salt +pep🌱 olive oil🌱with CLEAN hands work the dressing into the salad being mindful not to bruise the veg. Keep your hands relaxed, like you're casually tossing a million dollar bills into the air 💸 vs. angrily folding laundry 🌱adjust your seasoning and enjoy! #eatyourgreens #welldressed #bestsaladever #food101 #rawvegan #howto #goodfoodforbadpeople
SPRING IS HERE! What could possibly be more spring-y than sprouts! I'm from California so I'm used to having these bad boys on everything. Here's five reasons why you'll want to, too!
