  • Unless the asparagus are very thin, peel away the tough outer skin using a vegetable peeler.
  • Tie them in a bundle with kitchen twine and drop into a large pot of boiling water.
  • Cook uncovered until tender, 10 to 20 minutes depending on thickness.
  • Remove the asparagus from the water and drain on a towel.
  • Mash the eggs with a fork in a small bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Arrange the asparagus on a serving platter or individual plates and spoon the egg mixture on top, leaving the ends of the asparagus uncovered.
  • Serve immediately.


Try a grating of fresh nutmeg for additional flavour.
