Serves 2



  • 2 slices of wheaten bread
  • 2 eggs

  • basil oil
  • 4 basil leaves, thinly sliced

  1. Cook your asparagus – pop it into a pan of boiling water and let boil for three minutes. Turn down to a simmer but keep it in the water.
  2. Heat water to boiling point in a pan, then turn it down to a simmer.
