Liven up your day with this fresh, fast and tasty roasted asparagus dish with dukkah, Parmesan and poached egg. These tender green spears make a perfect spring meal that will leave you feeling healthy, light, but full and satiated. You don't need vinegar to poach egg if they are fresh and don't add any salt as this may break up the egg white. The water for poaching eggs should be simmering or gently bubbling. A strong boil will cause the egg white to break apart.

Pinenut DukkahFor Asparagus
  • 2 tbsp Pecans, chopped
  • 4 tbsp Pine nuts
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp Coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp Chilli flakes
  • 2 tsp Hot parprika powder
  • 1 tsp Coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Smoked paprika powder
  • 1 tsp Dried thyme
  • 30 g Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
  • 600 g Green asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Organic lemon, zested
  • 4 Eggs, poached
  1. Chop pecans to the size of pine nuts. Add the sesame seeds and toast the mixture in a non-stick pan without fat until the nuts start to smell fragrant. Crush the cumin and coriander seeds in a mortar or grinder and add to the nut mixture to roast. Add the remaining spices, salt and dried thyme. Mix well.
  2. Place 4 tablespoons of dukkah in a bowl and add in grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Mix well. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Wash the asparagus, pat dry and cut off the ends. Toss with olive oil and lemon zest. Arrange them in a baking pan.
  3. Sprinkle the prepared dukkah and Parmesan mixture over and bake for 20 minutes until asparagus are tender and the topping is crispy.
  4. Meanwhile bring a pot of water to a simmer. Crack an egg into a bowl. Gently slide the egg into the water and cook for 3-4 minutes for a soft yolk or until cooked to your liking. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Repeat with remaining eggs. Serve asparagus with the poached eggs.

Los espárragos no los he probado al horno, pero si a la plancha me gustan, asados también lo harán. Y la cobertura es riquísima. Una tentación de receta.
Un beso.

Pineut whatkkah? LOL
As already stated in front of the court, asparagus gives me creeps, so I tend to stay away from it LOL

Two poached eggs and I can absolutely enjoy this as an entree. Happy Breakfast! :D

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 4/5/23 19:29

Definitely one I shall try, although minus the egg, as I only eat hard boiled eggs.

I had to check out what Dukkah was, although I had pretty good idea from the ingredient list. I love learning about new ways to spice up traditional dishes and you always come up with something new to try! :)

Wow, this roasted asparagus dish with dukkah, Parmesan and poached egg looks absolutely delicious! I love how easy and fast it is to make, and the combination of flavors is perfect for springtime which sadly is 6 months away on my end of the world.

Si usano molto gli asparagi dalle mie parti sopratutto bianchi, io però preferisco quelli verdi
