Place the tomatoes onto a baking tray, cut side facing up, and drizzle with avocado oil and balsamic vinegar. Top with sprigs of rosemary, place under the grill and cook until tender. Remove from the oven and set aside, but keep warm.

Heat a small frying pan and brush 20ml chilli-flavoured avocado oil over the base of the pan.

Pour a thin layer of the beaten egg over the base of the pan. Allow to set, then turn over and fry the other side until golden. Repeat until the mixture is used up. Cover and keep warm.

Sauté the asparagus in the remaining chilli avocado oil until tender but still crisp. Remove from the pan. Add the bacon to the pan and fry until crisp.

To serve:

Wrap some of the asparagus, bacon and spinach in each omelette. Serve with the grilled tomatoes

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
