I usually make fresh green beans with mushrooms and I add some garlic pepper, lemon pepper, seasoning salt, and some onion powder. Do not be heavy handed with them or it will be very salty! But it's my fave side dish ever! I have more tips and recipes on my site if you want to check it out weighingwoman.com
 A quick 'cheat'/'alteration' -- swap the fries, from potato fries to sweet potato fries, or even carrot fries (oven fries for all of them).
 Or from oven fries to oven-baked veggie chips: thinly cut beet chips are awesome and sweet (and can be made to be crisp); kale chips work well.
 Sloppy Joes are a sandwich and I always love soup and a sandwich ... or soup-salad-sandwich, so make a quick smooth vegetable soup (e.g. couple cups of vegetable stock, steamed broccoli, puree it until creamy smooth ... salt & pepper).

I recently made sloppy joes and served two veggies with them. I figured we had our protein and our starch in the sloppy joes. You could do a salad or cole slaw and a veggie, or do veggies on a skewer. I like to roast peppers, onions, carrots and zucchini together in a little olive oil and a sprinkle of rosemary. I'll do this to give us a variety and it is easy to add other veggies in, if desired.
