shake and bake with veggies is a bit more tricky, and would vary depending on what veggies you are using. for instance some cut up squash would take alot longer then say some mushroom caps...
i'd suggest maybe "shake n' fry" ???
this would be more of a practical way to make a coated/breaded vegitable dish i would think. you can shake the veggies with the shake and bake mixture and then deep fry them in some oil for a better, tastier finish. although if health is a big concern this isnt nearly as good as baking.
as far as baking id go with 350 degrees for veggies and id guess something along the lines of:
mushrooms 15-20 minutes
brocolli, cauliflower - 20 minutes
carrot 25-30 minutes
squash, potatoes 45- 60 minutes
fish again would depend on the type and cut but you could probably do most filets at 325 for 15-20 minutes.
also, it may be easier for you to steam the vegitables, then coat and bake them.
