Asparagus and Eggs

The past 2 weeks my husband has asked for "just a protein shake" for dinner.  While our shakes are healthy, filling and nutritious I get a bit bored after 2 weeks.  Last night I just wanted something different.

Eggs are a great source of protein and healthy fats.  They are also a great source of Omega-6, Vitamin A, Selenium, Iron and vitamin B12.

Steamed Asparagus are low-calorie source of fiber.  They are also a great source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A and Folate.

Steamed Asparagus and Eggs
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups Asparagus, chopped and steamed
2 eggs, poached


Directions:
Wash asparagus, chop and steam.
To save time and extra dishes I microwaved my eggs as I did with
Mary's Breakfast Sammies.
*Microwave for approx 50 seconds. Watch it or it will POP all over your microwave*
Place the steamed asparagus in a bowl and top with eggs.
Salt and pepper to taste (optional).  Feel free to add sauce if you prefer.  This would have been great with Hollandaise sauce but I'm avoiding high calories at dinner.

I hope you have enjoyed Meatless on Monday # 30.  This is a great meal for breakfast, lunch OR dinner.

Sharing this delicious recipe at Tuesdays with a Twist , The Creative HomeAcre Hop , Foodie Friends Friday and HERE.

  5. That looks really good, I have never had asparagus and eggs, but I know ppl that love it. I do not eat eggs but I do eat asparagus from time to time. They are some thing that I like when I eat but when I buy them sometimes I have to throw them away due to spoilage, do not know what it is about them that I shy away from.
