When I'm roasting a chicken, I put lots of veggies in the pan with the bird, and they roast up nicely too. Carrots, parsnips, belgian endive, onions, sweet potatoes.
With the kitchen garden in full swing, I'll make a quick lunch in 15 minutes by blanching and peeling 4 - 5 medium tomatoes, tossing in a some fresh herbs, some cooked rice, chopped kale, collards, french sorrel, and swiss chard, onion, with a little leftover meat. (like some of that roast chicken) Reduce it down over medium high heat for 10 minutes for an instant tasty stew.
I eat tomatoes, rice, and eggs for breakfast all summer long when tomatoes are ripe in the greenhouse.
The chicken carcass gets turned into stock, which is then the basis for other soups, such as butternut squash soup, potato leek sorrel soup, etc.
Cucumber salad with greek yoghurt is really good. Spinach arugula salad is quick and easy.
If you have a veggie garden then you just pick what you need for a meal and nothing goes bad in the fridge. Growing some veggies yourself if you have the space will change your relationship with them enough that you might eat them more. Tastes better than just about anything you can buy. If you're in an apartment but have a balcony with 6 hours of sun grow a cherry tomato plant in the summer and just eat tomatoes right off the vine.
Every day I eat dark leafy greens like this: chop coarsely, bring 1/2" of water to a boil, toss in the greens, reduce heat to a simmer, cook 5 - 7 minutes, drain and eat. Works for kale, collards, chard.
Chopped belgian endive with lemon, pepper and olive oil is a delicious salad that takes just one minute to make.
Veggie smoothies in the vitamix are really great.
Stir fry veggies in a wok, flavor with soy sauce and sesame oil.
Even if you're not a vegetarian, a vegetarian cookbook will give you lots of great ideas. Just make sure it's not one of the old hippie cookbooks from the 70s and 80s that frankly just taste terrible to me.
Can you tell we eat pretty well @ my house?
Hope this helps.
