Poached Egg on Roasted Asparagus with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Poached Egg on Roasted Asparagus with Creamy Mustard SauceIMG_6856I really love healthy food. I really really really do. Dare I say I think I like it even better than the ridiculously decadent desserts I tend to come up with on a daily basis…

IMG_6851Why? Well, for one thing, I can eat a lot more of it and feel nary a tinge of guilt. Plus, you ever notice how flat your stomach feels when you’ve eaten nice and clean for a few days? There seems to be no amount of crunches that can get your stomach feeling as toned as when you’ve laid off the sugar for a while.

IMG_6849There’s no shortage of things you can make with a few very simple ingredients. This poached egg and asparagus combo is a perfect example of simple, healthy, and very easy to make. There are 6 ingredients total, if you count the black pepper and olive oil. Just asparagus, an egg, Greek yogurt, whole grain mustard, black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.

And the poached egg is simply poached in the microwave. I know. I’m like…Wizzy wizzy whuuutttt…. dawg?

Poached Egg on Roasted Asparagus with Creamy Mustard Sauce

  • 1 Egg
  • 10 Asparagus Stalks
  • 2 Tbsp. Fage 0% Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp. Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
  • Drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Sea Salt (optional) to taste

Preheat oven to 400°

Place asparagus on an oven safe dish and drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil. Place in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Mix Greek yogurt and mustard together in a small dish, set aside.

In the last couple of minutes of the asparagus roasting, fill a cereal bowl with water. Crack an egg into the bowl of water and set in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. If you like your egg yolk more cooked than runny, cook longer in 10 second intervals until desired yolk consistency is reached.

Remove asparagus from the oven and spoon the creamy mustard mixture over the top evenly.

Remove egg from water with a slotted spoon and place on top of asparagus. Garnish with salt and pepper to taste.

How easy was that?! And to make it for a guest, simply double the ingredients. Now that’s my kind of breakfast!

      Definitely a great recipe for a lazy day. It tastes wonderfully gourmet, but requires such minimal effort!

    This looks delicious and I don’t even like mustard! I read your “About” and I’m from Charlotte as well 🙂 Cuppy is so cute!

    P.S. I didn’t mean to rate the recipe. I accidently clicked it and I can’t unclick :/

      Thank you 🙂 I wonder if we’ve run into each other at some point without knowing. I know Charlotte is big, but I swear I always know someone who knows someone (ever been flabbergasted by mutual friends of friends on facebook?). That’s OK about the rating. I don’t know how to undo it either, but at least you didn’t give it a 1 😉
