Spicy Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

This simple side dish makes just enough to serve two.

Coat an 11x7-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In the dish, combine 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. dried thyme (use 1/4 tsp. fresh thyme if you prefer), 1/8 tsp. black pepper, 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper, and 6 small red potatoes, each cut into quarters. Toss to combine.

Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, then stir in 2 tablespoons vegan grated Parmesan (such as the Parmesan sprinkles from Galaxy Foods), and 1/2 tsp. minced garlic.

Meanwhile, snap the tough ends off 1/2 a pound of asparagus spears. Combine the asparagus with 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1/8 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. minced garlic.

Add to the dish with the potatoes and continue to cook an additional 10 minutes.

Divide evenly among 2 plates for 2 side servings of 230 calories each.

red potatoes $4.99
asparagus $4.16
