The Quick Fix {Provençal Pork chops with Vegetable Saute}

Tuesday evening and just like most of you, the Webbs are going every which way.... and somewhere in there it's really important to me that we converge at the dining room table, even if its briefly, for a meal... and I want it to be yummy AND healthy.... I won't make a big deal about the diet we are trying to be on but you MIGHT notice a FEW healthier posts.... but I won't completely leave the dark side, fret not.
So, these chops are a good healthy quick fix.

for the chops:
4 boneless pork chops
1 tsp {just a drizzle} olive oil {I used garlic flavored}
2 cups diced tomatoes in juice {I used Pomi}
1/4 cup red wine
1/2 cup vegetable stock
2 tsp Herbes de Provence

for the veggies:
2 cups broccoli
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup asparagus
1/4 vegetable broth
1/4 cup slivered "salad" almonds {I used Caesar flavored}
1/8 cup grated Parmesan

for the chops:
Heat your drizzle of oil over medium high heat for a minute or two then add the chops, while the first side is browning sprinkle your Herbes de Provence over the other side before turning.  Allow to cook approximately 3 minutes before flipping.  Cook another 3 minutes to allow for browning then add the tomatoes, wine and broth.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for 15-20 minutes covered.
for the veggies:
Once the chops are simmering, cut up your florets and cut your asparagus into 2 inch pieces {discarding the tough end}when ten minutes remain, add your broth and vegetables to a large saute pan and heat to a simmer allow to simmer uncovered then sprinkle with nuts and Parmesan.
