Asparagus season is coming to an end, so I am gorging myself on them. I just add them to nearly anything, into soups, salads, omelets, pizzas… but one of my favourite ways to enjoy them is just grilled in the pan.
Another thing that I am mad about is having brunch for dinner :P, and most specially about egg dishes. Actually I should say they are getting into my dinner plate more and more often. This is because they are perfect for those busy days when you get at home and don’t feeling like cooking, eggs are quick to cook and are so versatile, poached, scrambled, in omelette, boiled… They also load your plate with good proteins making your dinner delicious and nutritious.
I am sure you will love today’s recipe as much as I do. It is simple. quick and so tasty. Grilled Asparagus with Egg and Parmesan, you just need three ingredients to make a winner dish.
Asparagus is a great source of betacarotene, vitamins B1, B2, C, E, K, folate and iron. It’s also reach in inulin, which helps stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the digestive system.
Give it a try and let me know what do you think about it 😉 And don’t forget to tag a photo #healthyforkful on Instagram! I would love to see your creations.
