- Start by snapping the tips of the asparagus to 4-5 cm length, until no more snapping (about 2/3 of each asparagus). Wash and let dry the cut pieces.
- Add the eggs in a small bowl the eggs and whisk lightly.
- Put a large sauce pan on medium heat and when hot drizzle the oil. After a minute add the asparagus and toss frequently for about 5 minutes. Add the lemon juice and stir for another minute.
- Toss the eggs, add the salt and pepper, stir, lower the fire to low and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, while stirring, until the eggs have been cooked and serve.
