2 lbs. ripe plum tomatoes

1 small red bell pepper

1 English cucumber, peeled and seeded, divided

1/2 cup torn fresh or day-old country bread, (crusts removed)

1 small clove garlic

23 Tbsp red-wine vinegar

1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1/4 tsp hot Spanish paprika

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a baking sheet with a rim, toss asparagus with oil. Season with salt. Bake until asparagus is lightly browned and tender, 15 to 18 minutes

In a small saucepan, cook balsamic vinegar and sugar over medium-high heat until syrupy and reduced to 3 Tbsp, about 6 minutes.

Bring a large skillet with 2 inches of water to a simmer over medium heat. Add cider vinegar and season with salt. Break one egg at a time into a cup, then tip cup into pan. Simmer until whites are set and yolks are soft but slightly set, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spatula, scoop out eggs one at a time and drain on paper towels

Slice mushrooms into 4 pieces each, heat olive oil in pan.  Cook mushroom for 1-2 minutes (tender) and season with some salt and pepper.

Divide asparagus and eggs among four plates and drizzle with reduced balsamic.

Top with shaved Parmesan (optional)
