Asparagus is a good source of betacarotene, which has antioxidant properties, folic acid and vitamin C. It is low in calories, just 24 per 100g, and high in fibre. It also contains vitamin B9, which is good to eat if you are planning a baby as lack of this vitamin can increase the risk of spina bifida.

Heat the oil in a pan, add the breadcrumbs, then fry until crisp and golden. Season with the spices and flaky sea salt, then leave to cool. Cook the asparagus in a large pan of boiling salted water for 3-5 mins until tender. At the same time, boil the eggs for 3-4 mins. Put each egg in an egg cup on a plate. Drain the asparagus and divide between plates. Scatter over the crumbs and serve.
