Asparagus with Truffle Oil, Egg and Tomato Dressing

Labels: { , } | © 2015 |

Green asparagus, boiled in salted water until crisp tender, served with a dressing made with hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, fresh herbs and truffle oil. Low-carb, high in protein and fiber, gluten-free and the combination of flavour make this salad a perfect spring time lunch.

  • 2 Eggs, hard-boiled
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 handful Parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bunch Chives, cut into rings
  • 1 tsp Truffle mustard
  • 4 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Truffle oil
  • 3 tbsp Sunflower oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 500 g Asparagus, trimmed and peeled
  1. Cut the tomatoes into 5mm thick dices. Place them in a sieve over a bowl and reserve the strained liquid. Roughly chop and parsley and slice the chives into rings.
  2. Half the eggs and crumble one egg yolk in a small bowl together with truffle mustard, white wine vinegar, and reserved tomato juice. Whisk until everything is combined. Beat in truffle oil and sunflower oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Finely chop the remaining egg whites and egg yolk. Stir chopped eggs, diced tomatoes and herbs into the dressing. Set aside for 30 minutes for the flavours to develop.
  4. In a large, deep skillet, add enough salted water to reach a depth of 2 inches. Bring it to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water and let stand until chilled. Drain and pat dry. Arrange the asparagus in a serving dish, drizzle with prepared dressing. | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

Scrumptious! This sauce must taste fantastic.

One of those veggies I miss out here. Love it in any form!

Beautiful dressing! I am sure it goes well with asparagus :)

Ivy 18/5/15 11:02

I am sure it tastes wonderful. Unfortunately, although we produce asparagus in Greece they are all exported and what little stays for local consumption is too expensive for us!

what a unique way to serve asparagus! beautiful presentation too. :)

Tricia Buice 18/5/15 16:22

This is a great dish - love the low-carb bonus :) We still have some asparagus growing in the garden so I'll have to give this a try. I haven't worked with truffle oil or mustard before but I am very curious! Have a great week.

Monica 19/5/15 14:23

I just scored some fresh asparagus at the farmer's market on Sunday (good ones are still hard to find even in season!). I love how you prepared this...I remember seeing a dressing made with eggs in a magazine and thinking that sounded sensational. This is "fancy" enough for company.

Jeanette 19/5/15 15:00

I've never seen truffle mustard - this would be so good for brunch, lunch or dinner!

Spotted some nice asparagus yesterday but I didn't get it as I am at lost how else to eat it. Now looking at yours, I regretted not grabbing a bundle.

Liz Berg 20/5/15 03:24

We made an egg topping for asparagus for French Fridays with Dorie and yours looks just as yummy! I know Bill is tired of the plain roasted asparagus I cook each week---so this is a terrific option!

Suja Md 20/5/15 04:43

I have never tried asparagus in this way!! gonna try this version sooner...very tempting!!

Marcela 22/5/15 08:50

yum! The asparagus dish looks awesome! I love truffle oil! Must be delicious!

Oli 22/5/15 15:01

I just have to say I loved this asparagus dish !
Its so inviting and one just wants to dive in. I can see the asparagus is perfectly cooked and the topping there is great. Boiled eggs can be used in endless ways. Another version of this dish could be serving the dressing warm by sauté together onion, parsley, chives, capers, anchovies and hard boiled eggs as you have them.
Lovely dish Angie and great photo !
Thanks Oli

Karen (Back Road Journal) 22/5/15 15:42

What a great idea…I love the topping you made for the delicious asparagus. It makes a colorful addition to a meal.

Easyfoodsmith 22/5/15 19:13

This is one veggie that we don't get easily in Indian and if by luck we do, it costs a bomb. I am pretty tempted by this dish :)

emma @ Bake Then Eat 22/5/15 22:41

I have some asparagus to use up right now and this is going to happen to them.

dedy oktavianus 23/5/15 20:42
