As much as we enjoy the process of cooking, there is nothing more dreadful than the literal mountain of smelly, dirty dishes that often comes in the wake of the preparation and consumption of food. Those equipped with the luxury of a dish washer might laugh in the face of such a mess and shrug their noble shoulders. Filthy peasants like me, however, have to rely on manual labor instead in order to keep their kitchens clean and the plague at bay.
A great way to lessen the steady toils of dish washing altogether? One-pot meals. As the name suggests, all ingredients are combined in just one single pot, resulting in less preparation time and, more importantly, less dirty dishes to wash. Check out three of our favorite one-pot recipes below.
