The worst part of cooking is cleaning up. Unless you have a personal maid on hand (if so, go you!), whatever mess you make while cooking is up to you to clean up. One-pot meals are the best of both worlds, with all the hearty deliciousness of a homemade dinner and the easy cleanup of ordering in.
No one like cleaning dishes, which makes this the perfect choice for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).
We put the Culinary Content Network to the test to come up with wonderful one-pot meals to eat all winter long, and here are some of the highlights:
Kit Graham from The Kittchen brings us buffalo chili, which can an easy, cheesy appetizer dip.
Christine Carlisle from Chew, Nibble, Nosh brings us a classic Italian soup made with broken bits of spaghetti, pancetta, cannellini beans, and spinach.
This week’s winner comes from Diane Balch and Simple Living and Eating, who brings us a simplified version of Malaysian mee rebus soup.
All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
