Step-by-step

  1. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Add half of the oil, season the asparagus and fry, turning now and then, until charred in places, for about 3 minutes. Lift out of the pan and set aside.
  2. Lower the heat, add the remaining oil and sauté the spring onions, garlic and cumin for a minute. Throw in the cabbage and half of the chilli, and fry for 3 minutes, tossing regularly.
  3. Add the lemon juice, half of the feta and the asparagus. Turn the heat to medium-low.
  4. Using a spoon, make 4 holes in the mix of vegetables, then crack in the eggs. Cover the pan with a large sheet of foil (it doesn't have to be very tight) and leave on medium-low heat for 5–7 minutes, until the whites are set but the yolks are still soft.
  5. Uncover, take off heat and season. Serve scattered with the remaining chilli and feta.
