Quick Fix "Go To" meal

When I'm in a bind as to what to make, or I didn't do my prep earlier in the week, due to life getting in the way... my favorite "go to" meal is a one dish meal...
Gather your favorite veggies and slice them up... add salt, pepper and lots of flavorful seasoning on them along with a little olive oil so the seasoning sticks to them...
and place in a hot 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes...
THEN...
Add a protein... such as fish, or sausage...
If you want to do chicken or other meats, brown it in a pan first and get it almost all the way cooked through, then place the pieces directly on top of the veggies in the oven... and cook for another 15 minutes or so...
All the veggies get sweet, toasty and scrumptious...
We always fight over the onions in my family, so I ususally use two whole cut up HUGE onions, so there's enough for each of us.
Baby carrots are divine like this.
I NEVER, ever, EVER... boil my veggies... no flavor...
I broil them 95% of the time...
nothing but flavor...
BBQing them is awesome too...
especially eggplant and onions...
***
Salmon is my favorite fish to broil like this... and I add it raw the last 10 minutes... and it's perfect...
Add a salad and some fresh bread and enjoy!!!
