Method

  1. Peel and wash the asparagus spears. Cut the tips to make spears 5-6cm long. Steam for 4 minutes.
  2. Prepare a bowl of cold water and ice cubes. As soon as the asparagus tips are done, remove them
    with a slotted spoon and dip them briefly into the ice water. Drain them on a paper towel. Let them cool to lukewarm and cut in two lengthwise. Set aside.
  3. Put the egg in a bowl of hot tap water for about 5 minutes to bring it to room temperature, if cold out of the refrigerator. Transfer it to a steaming basket or a pot of boiling water and cook for three minutes.
  4. Place the egg in an egg cup. Cut the top off and insert an asparagus tip.
  5. Place the other asparagus tips on the plate.
  6. When baby has finished the yolk and asparagus, scrape the egg white out and put it on the plate. Add the Parmesan so he can eat it all with a teaspoon.

Ingredients (from age 2)

  • 3 asparagus spears
  • 1 fresh egg
  • 10g Parmesan cheese shavings

TOP TIP

Instead of asparagus, you could also use small sticks of raw veg, such as carrots, celery and cucumber.
