Spring vegetables, poached wild turkey egg

The vegetables consist of asparagus, morel mushrooms and French breakfast radishes. The morels were sautéed in unsalted butter; the asparagus and radishes were briefly simmered and blanched, then combined with the morels. Sea salt, sage, chives and black pepper to finish, with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on top.

Time: About 15 minutes, including prep.

  1. turkey eggs? how are they different than chicken eggs?


    • They have a very intense eggy taste. Think of a farm egg (basically, a chicken egg grown on a small family farm using organic, sustainable methods) and amplified in flavor by a factor of twenty. The eggs are slightly smaller than a medium-sized chicken egg and have a slightly thicker shell. Cooking times are about 1-2 minutes less (typical hard-cooked chicken egg is about 13-15 minutes and 4-5 minutes for soft-cooked).
