Asparagus with Mimosa Topping

Asparagus with Mimosa Topping

Made with grated egg, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and fresh parsley, this topping adds a boost to any number of green vegetables, from broccoli to green beans. To mix it up, use tender herbs like chervil, basil or tarragon instead of or in addition to the parsley.

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 2 slice(s) whole-wheat bread, crusts removed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • 3 tablespoon(s) fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 bunch(es) asparagus (about 2 1/2 pounds), woody bottoms removed
  • 1 tablespoon(s) water


Pulse the bread in a food processor until it becomes fine crumbs. Coat a medium non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat the pan over medium-high heat until hot. Lower the heat to medium, add the bread crumbs and then toast, tossing often until they are golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.

Peel, then grate the egg, using the medium holes of a box grater. Combine the egg, bread crumbs, parsley, Parmesan, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and toss to combine.

Place the asparagus on a serving platter and sprinkle evenly with the topping.
