  1. Heat a small non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, add the asparagus and chorizo and fry for 8 mins. Stir through the paprika, cooking for a further 1 min.

  2. Stir the spinach into the pan and cook for 5 mins until wilted before stirring through the crème fraîche. Season, then make a well in the middle of the mixture and crack the egg into it. Cover the pan and cook for 5-6 mins or until the egg is just set. Serve with a flatbread, if you like.
