One pot, one pan, one can, or something like that. During the pandemic, I spent hours cooking. Now, I want quick and easy. Clark has simple versions of things I thought would be complex: saag paneer, spicy turkey larb, and crispy kimchi fried rice. Also, she has simple versions of “ordinary” dishes: rice and beans or bacon and egg spaghetti. Each recipe leads to ONE delicious meal.— Ashby
Melissa Clark brings her home cook’s expertise and no-fuss approach to the world of one-pot/pan cooking. With nearly all of the recipes being made in under one hour, the streamlined steps ensure you are in and out of the kitchen without dirtying a multitude of pans or spending more time than you need to on dinner.
Expect to find a bevy of sheet-pan suppers (Miso-Glazed Salmon with Roasted Sugar Snap Peas), skillet dinners (Cheesy Meatball Parm with Spinach), Instant Pot® pinch hitters (Cheaters Chicken and Dumplings), comforting casseroles (Herby Artichoke and Gruyere Bread Pudding) that you can assemble right in the baking dish, crowd-pleasing one-pot pasta meals (Gingery Coconut Noodles with Shrimp and Greens), vegetable-forward mains, and dozens of tips for turning a vegetarian or meat-based recipe vegan. And since no dinner is complete without dessert, you'll find a chapter of one-bowl cakes, too—from an Easy Chocolate Fudge Torte to a Ricotta-Olive Oil Pound Cake.
These are simple, delicious recipes for weekdays, busy evenings, and any time you need to get a delicious, inspiring meal on the table quickly—with as little clean-up as possible.
“New York Times food columnist Clark calls upon her decades of ’recipe streamlining’ in this excellent guide to weeknight cooking. . . . Busy home cooks shouldn’t miss this smart collection.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
