  • 8 organic pastured eggs

  • 2 heaping Tbs. chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley

  • 1/4 tsp. minced fresh tarragon leaves

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil

  • 4 large shiitake mushrooms, de-stemmed and sliced into strips

  • 6 stalks asparagus, trimmed & cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 Tbs. shredded Manchego cheese


  1. Preheat oven to broil. Whisk eggs with parsley and tarragon until frothy, and
    set aside.
  2. In 8-inch oven-proof pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add asparagus, and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, and cook about 2 minutes more.
  3. Add egg mixture to pan all at once, and cook undisturbed until edges are set but center is still wet, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer pan to broiler, at least 4-5 inches away from flame. Cook until set, but still a little wiggly in center, about 3-4 minutes. Check frequently to ensure that it doesn't burn.
  5. Remove from broiler, sprinkle cheese over top, and let rest for a few minutes. Work a spatula around edges, and slide it onto platter. Cut into four wedges and serve.
