This is a simple-to-make low-fat, low-cal vegetable dish to add to any meal.

Cooking spray

1/2 pound fresh green beans, cleaned, trimmed, and patted dry

1 pound fresh asparagus, likewise

1 medium red onion, cut into rings

8 to 10 cloves of garlic, peeled and cut in half

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 to 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet or shallow baking tray with cooking spray. Spread asparagus and beans on the tray, and cover with onion rings and garlic. Salt lightly, and spray with cooking spray. Bake the vegetables about 20 minutes, interrupting several times to shake the tray. Test at about 15 minutes. When veggies are tender, remove from the oven and transfer to a bowl or small casserole. Drizzle immediately with vinegar. Apply freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve hot, room temperature, or cold.
