The joys of One Pot cooking
One-pot meals are another great option if you’re busy and want to limit the amount of work to prepare a meal. My favorite advantages of one-pot meals are:
- Lots of flavors. Just because it’s contained to one pot doesn’t mean it’s basic. All the recipes above have a variety of flavors and ingredients.
- Easy cleanup. Only one pot to clean at the end.
- Stove simplicity. No need to monitor multiple pots and pans on the stove at one time.
- Veggies included. One-pot recipes are generally complete meals that include veggies. There’s no need to plan a separate side dish.
- Instant pot-friendly. Many recipes can be made in an Instant Pot to simplify things even further.
I hope you find a one-pot recipe to try this week!
