As much as I love to cook, I really, really hate to clean. My poor boyfriend often takes care of the post-dinner chaos in the kitchen (in related news, he is a saint), but lately I’ve been looking for ways to cut down on cleanup as much as possible so all either of us have to do after a meal is chill out on the couch and talk about how good it was. The answer? One pot meals. Cooking all your ingredients in one skillet or casserole dish means fast, easy prep and pretty much zero cleanup time. Sounds good to me! Click through for eight delish recipes that can be cooked up in just one pot…
I am shamelessly addicted to homemade veggie burgers for 3 reasons:
- They’re super easy to make. Some recipes are a little time-consuming, but they rarely require any technique more complicated than “mash all these things together in a bowl,” which is fun.
- They’re mega healthy. Veggie burgers can be made with anything from beans to quinoa to rice to lentils to cauliflower (or any combination of these things). They’re basically piles of veggies formed into patties. So good for you.
- The biggest reason of all? They are DELICIOUS. Seriously, it’s amazing how much flavor you can pack into these things. Served with melted cheese, a simple flavored mayo, and sweet potato fries, I could happily eat them every day of the week (and sometimes I do!).

Winona: So Ami, I had this thought while I was making dinner last night. I really want to teach you to cook.
Ami: I would love that.
Winona: Because you hate cooking right?
Ami: I just don’t get it. I’m impatient and hate doing things I’m bad at.
Winona: As a perfectionist oldest child, I feel you, girl.
Ami: Plus, in my house growing up, no one cooked. Like nothing. It was cereal for dinner. I can cook eggs and chicken. That’s it. Keep reading »
Most of my childhood food memories revolve around my dad’s horrifying culinary inventions (pizza pork chop alfredo omelet, anyone?), which, despite years of therapy, have proven impossible to forget.
