I was so happy when I heard that my dear friend, Jill Nussinow, said that she was writing a new cookbook. Jill goes by the name The Veggie Queen, which is totally apt!
Jill is a Registered Dietitian, and is a wonderful chef who does full justice to the amazingly healthy array of whole plant foods out there.
A lot of my meals are made in one pot, for many reasons. The most obvious is that it keeps dishes at a minimum, since it only uses one pot.
Having one dish means that your tastebuds are satisfied with less food than if you have lots of different flavors on your plate. Think of Thanksgiving dinner, and tons of side dishes, and how you need to eat just enough of each one to feel satisfied - even though you're overstuffed.
One pot meals keep things simple in terms of time spent making a meal, and also in terms keeping your evening meal a bit lighter for easier digestion before bed.
