Ingredients

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp olive oil, divided

12 cup minced red onion

12 cup minced red bell pepper

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

Nonstick cooking spray

5 cups asparagus, ends trimmed, left in long spears

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 lb boneless, lean pork loin chops, 12-inch thick

1 oz slivered blanched almonds

14 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 cup brown rice, cooked according to directions without salt or fat

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F.

1. In a small bowl, combine mustard, 1 tbsp olive oil, onion, bell pepper, and vinegar. Mix well and set aside.

2. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place asparagus in 1 layer in the dish and sprinkle with minced garlic and remaining 1 tbsp olive oil. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until asparagus is tender but still crisp.
