Mark McEwan’s Asparagus ‘& Goat Cheese Frittata

“The biggest meal of the day should be your first meal," says McEwan. "My trainer tells me to eat dinner for breakfast. This frittata is an easy way to get more vegetables, such as asparagus and onions’anything you have in your fridge. Instead of eggs being the biggest part of the meal, it’s just what holds it together.”
