For perfect soft-scrambled eggs, cook slowly and stir often to form creamy curds. Use the thinnest asparagus you can find so it will become crisp-tender with gentle heat.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add eggs and asparagus to pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 8 minutes or until eggs are soft and begin to set, stirring frequently. Stir in parsley; drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.

Easy, yummy meal.

June 11, 2015
Eggs & asparagus always pair well together - this is a delicious meal which comes together quickly, in about ten minutes. I made it for one person: two stalks asparagus, two eggs mixed with a little milk, then everything scrambled in a bit of butter. I added the asparagus a bit before the egg to give it time to crisp. I had a bit of whole-wheat toast on the side. Perfect for a light lunch or supper.Also, ignore the previous reviewer: All the fat comes from good, natural places, like the oil/butter you scramble everything in or the egg itself. Still a delicious meal.

Too much fat for Cooking Light

I have a hard time with the idea that a magazine called Cooking Light would promote a recipe that has 67% of its calories coming from fat.
