10 One-Pot Wonders

By Megan Myers, September 19, 2012  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

The official start of fall is just days away, but I’ve been in a fall-cooking mindset since Labor Day. For me that doesn’t just mean cool-weather produce like apples, butternut squash and Brussels sprouts – it means hearty meals that don’t require a lot of post-dinner cleanup. As we creep toward winter, I know I’d rather spend extra time soaking up the remaining sun than doing a mountain of dishes!

That’s why I turn to one-pot meals like spicy chili, simmered soups and fast frittatas to get dinner on the table.

Not one of these pictures is appetizing to me. Each one looks like mush! Ugh!

Our favorite one-pot dish is Chicken Cacciatore (we like Martha Stewart's) made with de-boned chicken thighs. . . . . .perfect this time of year.

All those dishes look warm, inviting, and delicious! Been cooking almost 50 years. Thanks for inspiring me toward fall/winter. Still wanna hike another 14'er before snow flies! Any of these meals would be lovely to come home to:+)

Yum! Love one pot meals - they're delicious and easy. Maybe Mae is a raw food vegan. ;)

I LOVE one pot meals! They save time AND energy - who doesn't love that? All of these look great, except, well I'm not as sure about the Coconut, Carrot and Chickpea soup (love the alliteration) but the small photo just looks like little bowls full of mustard. haha. I'm sure in person it's much better!
