Join the one-pot movement with The Complete One Pot Cookbook. From sheet-pan suppers to no-boil pastas, millions of home cooks want the ease of hands-off meals made using a single vessel. These flavorful recipes represent years of the test kitchen’s best strategies for successful single-pan cooking, from staggering cooking times so everything finishes at once to developing an arsenal of no-cook sauces and sides.
We flip the lid on several one-pot cooking assumptions; first, that it’s always slow. Half of the 400+ recipes can be made in 45 minutes or less. Next, that the recipes serve an army: We paid attention to smaller family sizes by adding scaled-down variations serving two throughout the book. And we made some of the all-time best recipes more flexible with choose-your-own pan options such as Classic Chicken Soup that can be made in a Dutch oven, slow cooker, or pressure cooker. Finally, we realized that decluttering dinner didn’t stop with using just one pot but also meant limiting the number of bowls.
Today’s one-pot recipes are more varied than ever. Skip takeout with Sheet Pan Pizza. Make date-night Classic Arroz Con Pollo for Two in a saucepan. Cook for a crowd using a roasting-pan “Walk-Away” Roast Chicken with Potatoes. Set and forget Slow Cooker Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Raisin-Almond Couscous, or get dinner on the table fast using an Instant Pot to make Cod with Warm Tabbouleh Salad. This assortment includes more than just dinner. Simplify breakfast with Sheet Pan Breakfast Sandwiches, or make one-bowl (or no-bowl!) Peach Cobbler or Classic Bread Pudding in your Dutch oven.
