“Another easy way (according to Good Housekeeping Cookbook) to cook frozen vegetables is to bake them. When baking a casserole, meat loaf, etc., just bake a regular sized box of frozen vegetables (for 3-4 servings), in a covered casserole along with your meat, placing it in oven so it will be done at the same time as main dish. I am not saying this is the best way to fix vegetables, but that this is an easy way to free you up for something else. I know life can be very busy. If baking at 325 degrees increase cooking time about 10 minutes. If baking at 375 degrees decrease time about 10 minutes. I put frozen broccoli spears into ingredients but any frozen vegetable will work.”
