    12 to 14 asparagus spears, trimmed and sliced lengthwise

    8 eggs

    3 scallions

    1 ¼ ounces dill

    Pinch of Himalayan pink salt

    4 teaspoons sunflower oil or sunflower seed butter

    1 tablespoon raw sesame seeds

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bring a pan of water to a rolling boil, then boil asparagus for 1 minute; drain and run under cold water. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Thinly slice scallions, roughly chop dill and cilantro, and add all to egg mixture. Season with pink salt. Heat the oil in a nonstick, heavy-bottom, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Toss sesame seeds in skillet; when they just begin to brown, pour in the egg mixture. Arrange asparagus on top of egg mixture. Place skillet in oven for 15 minutes, or until egg is firm.
