Scrambled Eggs with Asparagus and Tomatoes

2 large eggs
1 bunch asparagus*
2-3 cherry tomatoes
butter
salt & pepper

Rinse asparagus and tomatoes. Chop asparagus just above the bottom band, then chop into 1/2 inch/1.5 cm pieces (slightly longer is fine if your spears are very thin).

Heat small frying pan over medium heat. Add a pat of butter; when the foam has subsided, add a generous handful of asparagus and saute until bright green. Remove to a bowl and continue with remaining asparagus, adding butter as needed.

Add another pat of butter, reduce heat to medium-low, and crack eggs into a small bowl; whisk lightly with a fork. When foam from butter has subsided, add eggs to pan. Stir occasionally to scramble.

Meanwhile, dice the tomatoes, separating the seeds and juice from the flesh. When the eggs are almost cooked to your liking, add the tomatoes to the pan. Add a generous scoop of asparagus to the pan, as well.

Season to taste with salt, and pepper if desired.

*Reserve leftover asparagus for another use.
