For the dressing, pour the tomato juice, 10ml (2tsp) of the vinegar, 45ml (3 tbsp) of the olive oil and tomatoes and season to taste. 

Stir in the basil and set aside.

In a pot of boiling water, cook the asparagus for a few seconds and drain.

Gently poach the eggs.

To serve put the asparagus and two halves of potato onto a serving plate and top one halve with a poach egg. 

Spoon the dressing around and top the other half of the potato with a fresh basil leaf.

Serve while still hot.
