3 Easy One Pot Recipes

One pot meals are brilliant, and not just for saving on washing up (though that’s definitely a huge plus)


  • meals for when maybe you haven’t brought your ‘A-game’ to the kitchen, but still want to cook from scratch.
  • great when you’ve got a lot on your plate (metaphorically…but you’d like that to be literally as well, and with as little hassle as possible).
  • ideal for cooking in a kitchen you don’t know well (e.g. a friend’s) – SO much less hassle!

Sometimes, it’s nice to know you can cook up a storm in one saucepan. Here are three one pot meals to make your life a whole lot easier.
