Baked salmon along with roasted veggies, dinner rolls and easy beef soup, now that’s a complete meal…

This is my kind of dinner, especially on a week day. After a tiring day at work, mostly I won’t have the energy to make a scrumptious dinner. On such days, I can only think of easy breezy cooking. I don’t do much batch cooking and freeze the food for a few days. I’m all about freshness and honestly it doesn’t take a lot of time to cook an easy dinner. If I’m super lazy, I dine out.

The other day, I felt lazy to cook and didn’t feel like going out as well. That’s when my oven comes to rescue me and bakes a delicious dinner for me. I seasoned the salmon and tossed the veggies with some spices and popped them into the hot oven. I let the oven do all the cooking when I sat back and relaxed.

This is an easy recipe, all you have to do is season the salmon with simple spices: you could use any kind of seasonings of your choice. Same with the veggies: have any veggies of your choice and sprinkle spices over it and toss them in a baking tray. Let them bake in the oven till nicely done. A healthy delicious dinner will be ready in no time. You could also serve dinner rolls or bread.
