Kate Wesson's Poached Egg with Asparagus & Wild Garlic Hollandaise Recipe

This recipe is a great celebration of seasonality! Poaching eggs can be tricky but you'll be amazed at how simple the sous vide can make it.

Ingredients - serves 2
4 whole medium hen’s eggs, plus 3 yolks120g Asparagus, woody stems removed
4 slices of sourdough bread1 tablespoon olive oil
2 handfuls of wild garlic leaves & garlic flowers for
decoration if available
Juice of half a lemon
50g butterSalt & pepper


  • Preheat the Portable Buffalo Sous Vide to 62.8 degrees. Place the 4 eggs in your water bath and poach for 40 minutes.
  • In the meantime, make the hollandaise sauce. Place the egg yolks and lemon juice in a food processor with a good pinch of salt and blend until combined.
  • Roughly chop half of the wild garlic and add to the blender, blend until combined.
  • Heat the butter in a small pan until melted and foamy, turn the blender on again and slowly trickle in the melted butter until combined. Season to taste.
  • Toss the asparagus in a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a skillet pan until hot and cook the asparagus until charred and cooked to retain some bite.
  • Wilt the remaining wild garlic leaves in a splash of water.
  • Carefully crack the eggs onto a plate, removing any of the loose white.
  • Toast the slices of bread and top with the asparagus spears and wilted leaves.
  • Finish each piece of bread with an egg and spoon over the wild garlic hollandaise sauce.
  • Decorate with wild garlic flowers if you have them.
