A good meal doesn’t require oodles upon oodles of dishes to make. There are many one-pot meal recipes that create delicious meals the entire family will love – but with a fraction of the dirty dishes. One-pot meals are great if you’re short on time – you’re able to throw the ingredients into a pot, mix, and let it do its job.
The types of dishes range from soups to casseroles. Italian, Mexican, American – with the right spices, you can make something filling from every part of the globe. My list here is only a jumping-off point. I’ve gathered plenty of easy to make recipes for one-pot meals to get you started, and as soon as you finish these, you’ll be ready to find more to make for the following week.
