Healthy One-Pot Meals
Celebrate autumn with savory slow-cooked foods
One of my favorite aspects of autumn is having dinner simmering in a pot on my stove or in my oven all afternoon. As the days grow cold and nights extend, these one-pot meals turn my kitchen into a warm, cozy haven of mouthwatering aromas and delicious anticipation. Slow cooking develops the deep flavors of meat, vegetables and herbs, capturing and retaining their healthy properties in a rich broth. Dishes of tender braised meats, perfect gluten-free pastries and rich reduction sauces and gravies are not only crowd-pleasers, they’re surprisingly easy to make. After the initial prep and an occasional stir, your stove or oven does all the work. You can relax and enjoy the tantalizing fragrance filling your kitchen.
