  • While waiting for the Easter chick to knock on our door, let's collect all kinds of eggs: white, traditional, quail and have fun decorating them with our children. They will be beautiful to look at and good to eat.

    Time: about 40 minutes


    (different types of eggs: white, quail, normal)

    • 1 handful of baby spinach

    • black or wholemeal bread crumbs

    • 1 carotina

    • a handful of broad beans

    • wild asparagus or asparagineolive, seaweed

    • mayonnaise tomato or other sauce to accompany


    1. Boil the broad beans in boiling water and the asparagus for about 10 minutes. When they are soft, remove the outer skin of the beans, and cool the asparagus under running water.

    2 Rinse all the eggs. Prepare the hard-boiled eggs: boil the eggs in water, with the addition of a teaspoon of vinegar, wait 8 minutes from the boil. Then transfer the saucepan under cold running water to let it run for 5 minutes. Now you can remove the outer shell: tap lightly and remove the shell and skin.

    3. Prepare the hard-boiled quail eggs: put them in the bottom of a saucepan, add the water, a teaspoon of white vinegar and put to heat. From the boil wait 4-5 minutes then transfer under cold running water for a few minutes.

    4. Beat the quail eggs on the blade of a knife, pass them between the palms of your hand: the shell will break little by little, now you can remove it. Set aside.

    5. Soft-boiled eggs. Boil the water with the addition of a teaspoon of vinegar. When the water boils, transfer the eggs inside with the help of a spoon. Wait 3 minutes, turn off and transfer under running water.

    6. Now the decoration. On a plate put the baby spinach, forming a small green bed, sprinkle with a citronette, place the quail eggs and a tomato in the center.

    7. Use hard-boiled eggs for place cards: just remove the top cap, decorate with black bread crumbs, and some edible flowers or other available.

    8. Serve the hard-boiled eggs with the asparagus to dip.

    9. The rest of the hard-boiled eggs can become small chicks: decorated with olive eyes, carrot nose, seaweed smile and tomato hat
