Over 100 fantastic recipes to cook in one pot, wok, or pan, from tortillas and risottos to stir-fries, curries, casseroles, roasts, desserts, and more.
If you want great home-cooked meals with minimum washing-up-and need to keep to a budget-this book is for you. For lunch or a light dinner, try Hearty Soups and Substantial Salads, from Lentil, Spinach and Cumin Soup to Sweet Potato Salad. In Tortillas, Frittatas, and Other Egg Dishes you'll find fun Bacon and Eggs in a Pan and Sun-dried Tomato and Parmesan Frittata. Noodles and Stir-fries are quick and tasty, from Five-spiced Duck with Eggplant and Plums to Chicken and Yellow Bean Stir-fry and a classic Pad Thai. If you love rice, try Risottos, Paellas, and Other Rice Dishes, where the rice cooks in the pan with the other ingredients. Take your pick, from Saffron Fish Pilaf to a Paella of Summer Vegetables. Curries and Tagines are great one-pot options. Try a tasty Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemon or spicy Beef Madras. If you want a dish to pop in the oven and forget about, look at Bakes and Gratins, from Oven-roasted Spicy Macaroni to Potato and Mushroom Gratin. Casseroles and Stews are the ultimate one-pot meals. From Daube of Beef to Cheat's Chili or Portuguese Lamb Stew, you'll never run out of ideas. To finish, try the One-Pot Desserts. Fig and Honey Croissant Dessert is quick to assemble in one dish, as is the Peach Cobbler or traditional Baked Apples and Pears.
