When I'm feeling lazy, I like to cook food in the oven. Just throw it in there and leave it for half an hour/an hour.
In a glass casserole dish (or similar pan),
place meat in the middle
with diced potatoes, onion and carrots around it.
When it's almost done, you can add other veggies like broccoli, green beans, etc.
Meat options: meatballs, meatloaf, chicken thighs/legs/breast, chicken tournadoes (chicken "medallions" with strip of bacon wrapped around it), beef chunks...
Add salt and pepper and any other seasoning that might taste good
:. Add enough water to cover bottom of pan. If you're using a lean meat, add a bit of olive oil.
In a casserole dish,
add rice, bulgar wheat or any other grain.
Add twice the amount of water or broth.
Add a couple dabs of butter or olive oil and salt.
Add seasoning (beef seasoning, chicken seasoning, or basil, thyme whatever.)
Throw in whatever fresh/frozen veggies on hand (tomato, broccoli, onion, garlic, green pepper, red pepper, zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, spinach, etc)
Cover and bake at 350 for half an hour or till done. I honestly can't remember what temp I cook it at or how long it takes.
Usually I bake a couple different dishes at a time so that it's not wasting energy.
