So Charlie said, as he often does during the summer, that he wanted to eat light. Terrified of another dish of lettuce and beans, I offered to make supper. We had this.
I parboiled the red potatoes, then roasted them at 400F for about forty minutes. Meanwhile, I split the stems of the biggest asparagus spears and pan-roasted them in vegan margarine, sprinkled with Mrs. Dash. When they were almost done, I toasted the almonds in the same pan.
Nourishing and satisfying, and Charlie found it sufficiently light.
