New Potato & Chorizo Hash With Asparagus & Poached Egg

Author: Riverford Organics Published: 4th May 2021 07:36
 Recipe of the week

 Use the freshest eggs possible for poaching - the white will set around the yolk for a better result.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 600g new potatoes, scrubbed & halved or quartered if large
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 cooking chorizo sausages (200-250g), skin removed & meat crumbled
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 250g asparagus
  • splash of sherry vinegar
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • splash of white wine or cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs

  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water for 12-15 mins, until tender. Drain and lightly crush with a masher or fork.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and cook the onion slowly for 6 mins without colouring.
  3. Add the chorizo and fry for 2-3 mins.
  4. Add the potatoes and warm through.
  5. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Meanwhile, toss the asparagus in 1 tbsp oil in a baking dish. Add a splash of sherry vinegar, the paprika and season.
  7. Roast at 180°C for 10-15 mins, until just tender (or griddle for 5 mins).
  8. Bring a pan of water to a slow rolling boil. Add a good splash of white wine or cider vinegar. Crack the eggs into individual small bowls. Use a spoon to swirl the water and drop the eggs in, one at a time. Cook for 2½ mins for a runny yolk.
  9. While the eggs are cooking, plate the potatoes and asparagus. Remove the eggs and serve on the potatoes. Sprinkle the eggs with some extra salt.
