Take the fuss out of dinner with this hearty collection of satisfying, seasonal one-pot meals for every day of the year.
Whether it’s slow-cooked short ribs, a hearty casserole, or a healthy stir-fry bursting with seasonal vegetables, the main course recipes found in this book will provide inspiration throughout the year. Fresh spring vegetables, like sugar snap peas, leeks, and tender asparagus bring new life to baked pastas, creamy risottos, and fluffy frittatas. In summer, the garden bounty stars in lighter fare like braised meat dishes with diverse flavors, roasted and stir-fried seafood, stratas, and enchiladas. In autumn, root vegetables take a leading role in pot roasts, gratins, and rustic tarts while classic comfort foods, such as meat loaf and baked ziti with sausage, are back-to-school favorites. Rich, savory dishes like meat pies, fall-off-the-bone lamb tagines, spicy curries, herbed cassoulets, and warming stews feed a crowd and keep winter’s chill away.
