1. Cut asparagus spears in half length ways and fry in a frying pan along with garlic paste, you can either dry fry, use frylight or use a drop of oil, all those ways work. Fry until lightly browned and slightly softened.

2. In a separate frying or sauce pan, put about a 1tsp of water and the spinach, heat for a couple of minutes to wilt the spinach. Place the spinach in the frying pan with the asparagus.

3. Pour the mixed beans into the frying and pan and heat for 2-3 minutes, mix the veg and the beans and add a little chilli powder, stir to coat and fry for another minute.

4. While the veg and beans are finishing off, place a pan of water on the hob, bringing boiling then crack and egg in. Poach the egg for about 4 minutes so it is soft in the middle still.

5. Place the veg and beans on a plate, top with salmon slices and finish with the poached egg.
