Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sometimes the simplest-seeming cookbooks yield the most surprising revelations, as in nutritionist Yarnell's guide to one-pot cooking. Yarnell's signature infusion method, cooking in a dutch oven at a very hot temperature renders layered vegetables, starches and proteins like tandoori salmon and kale with butternut squash over basmati rice, into a surprisingly well-textured, hearty meal. (It's also foolproof: when you smell the aroma of dinner, you're three minutes from the end of the cooking time.) Dishes like citrus ginger chicken with root vegetables; penne puttanesca; and fiesta steak are simple choices for busy weeknight dinners. The real genius, of course, is the single pot—Yarnell's all-inclusive meals don't require the usual juggling of oven times to coordinate complementary dishes, and cleanup is simplified even further by a preliminary canola oil spritz on the pot. Her emphasis on whole foods, abundant servings of vegetables, moderate amounts of protein and the incorporation of whole grains like amaranth and quinoa justifies her health claims. Yarnell also guides readers in creating their own custom versions of the one-pot meal, even offering a one-pot meal weekly grocery list. (Dec.)

“When I hear ‘crisp vegetables, tender meats, incredible flavor, ONE pot, and ready in less than thirty minutes,’ I say COUNT ME IN! That’s my Quick Fix mantra! Who doesn’t cherish strategies that deliver wholesome, family-friendly meals in just minutes? All in one pot, which makes for easy cleanup. Glorious One-Pot Meals offers tons of variety, from the fabulously ordinary to the incredibly extraordinary. Fish dishes range from Very, Very Mild Fish to Honey-Chili Trout and Pistachio Halibut (with lavender!). Elizabeth tempts you with All-American Pot Roast and Corned Beef and Cabbage and then wows you with Amaranth Chili. Ready to move beyond Simply Chicken and Chicken Marsala? Then try the African Peanut Butter Stew. Or leap from Glorious Macaroni and Cheese to Aloo Gobi (a flavor-packed, Indian feast). If you’ve got a pot, you’ve got a meal. There’s truly something for everyone.

—Robin Miller, host of Food Network’s “Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller”

More About the Author

One night in 1999, I went to sleep as usual. When I awoke, I was blind in my right eye. An MRI confirmed a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

The more I learned about MS, the more convinced I became that I needed to be proactive about my health. About my future. It was two weeks before my thirtieth birthday; if I didn't act to save myself, who would?

The more I learned about health, the more I began to believe that robust health was impossible without real nutrition. I needed to move toward a whole foods diet, preferably one that fit into my busy 21st century lifestyle as a working mom of preschoolers.

Glorious One-Pot Meals are my solution for nutritious and delicious dinners that I can whip together in 20 minutes or less, and then pop into the oven and forget about them until the complete meal is ready 35-45 minutes later.

Wholesome, well-balanced recipes adjust to feed any number with creative flavors and ingredient combinations. Every ingredient in every recipe is substitutable, meaning that every Glorious One-Pot Meal can be vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, meat-and-potatoes, or however your family likes their food.

Weekly shopping lists and advice on stocking a pantry and freezer for meals in minutes - without needing to remember to thaw meats first! Great for last minute cooks, like me.

I continued to study the link between what we eat and how we feel and became a Naturopathic Doctor (ND). My food sensitivity clinic is virtual, allowing me to work with clients nationwide on designing customized anti-inflammatory diets to offer relief from chronic physical distress. Additionally, I began the "Fight MS with Food" project to help MS patients fight inflammation through food and change the course of their disease, as I have.

I believe a healthy, anti-inflammatory diet has contributed to my remission since 2002, as I believe it can help other suffering from chronic illness or simply striving for health in our modern environment. Glorious One-Pot Meals offer a quick, easy dinnertime solution for busy people to eat better food more often.

I purchased this cookbook when I was given a dutch oven for Christmas. I was excited about the gift, but wanted to learn more about how to use it. The recipes in this book have left me underwhelmed thus far (I've only had it about a month, but I've made two to three dinners from this book a week, so it's getting good use). Some are definitely yummy (Chicken Satay stands out as my favorite), but some just didn't seem to have as much flavor as I was hoping for. Regardless, this cookbook is a must-have for learning how to cook in a dutch oven. I've come up with my own recipes and ingredients, but cooked them as advised and explained in this book and everything comes out wonderful!!! I can't believe how quick and easy it is to get dinner on the table now!

Another note - most recipes call for baking in a 450 degree oven, but my dutch oven (Lodge Color Enameled Cast-Iron 6-Quart Dutch Oven, Island Spice) indicated that it shouldn't be used above 400 degrees. I kept the oven at 400 and kept a close eye to see if I would need to modify the time, but didn't - everything still cooked up perfectly and in the noted time.

I want to start out by saying that I am a mediocre cook at best. I am the type that needs to follow a recipe word for word, and even then my meals rarely turn out fantastic.

Not with this book! I've had it for over a month now, and now well over half of my meals are made using it. Most recipes are really good. I say most, because some are really quite bland, but even then it was no worse than many of my former 'quick meals' I use to make. My former baked chicken, rice, and a veggie is right on par with the frozen chicken meal she has, and it doesn't get any worse than that!

What I really love about this cookbook:

- Everything is healthy
- You can cook with frozen vegetables and meats
- It's easy to add a variety of foods you wouldn't normally use
- Vegetables turn out crisp, meats turn out tender
- Rice used in recipes turns out PERFECT and soooo tasty
- Foods don't mix flavors, but end up complimenting each other very very well.
- My Husband now eats second helpings of vegetables. Sometimes he even cleans out the pot.


- some of your food may get a little browned, especially rice. I don't mind it, but I know some people wouldn't like that. If you don't like it, adjust your time.

- You don't need to double up your recipes to use the 5qt. Just take a few minutes off the total cooking time. I cook my meals 3-5 minutes less than she suggests, depending on the ingredients. You'll get a feel for it during your first few attempts.

- Most recipes could use more salt. Usually when she says to sprinkle salt and pepper, I end up using about a tablespoon.

- Many of the recipes call for half of a certain vegetable. Half a pepper, half a zucchini...

I am not a big cook and if it takes longer than 20 minutes from grocery store to the oven, I am no longer interested in making the dish - I also hate, hate washing lots of dishes.

This book is the perfect solution for someone like me. I have had this book for a few weeks now and I managed to make most of the vegetarian recipes and let me tell you - this is a miracle book.

The ingredients are easy to find - and the preparation time is minimal and ALL of it can be done in one pot - period.

The recipes are excellent and easy to make - they taste great..

I also appreciated the breakdown of the calories and fat content for each (watch out for some of the fat contents - they can be a little high).

The one thing that was missing were the pictures of the meals. I would have liked to see what the finished product looked like. Nonetheless, this is a wonderful, wonderful book.

One suggestion, I did try making these recipes in a regular glass casserole and the recipes actually do taste much better in a dutch oven. The dutch oven is way more expensive, but is worth it You will send up getting all your money back on the savings you will be making eating in instead of out.

I have been enjoying the original book for a few years now and just had to get the updated version as soon as I heard it was coming out. I am eager to try the many new recipes available. We fixed the Amaranth Chili the day I got the book and it was fabulous. I substituted butternut squash for the zucchini and used venison instead of beef. We are hunters and I have found that elk and venison work great with this cooking method.
I love the ease of preparation and the flexibility in the recipes. It is nice to put together dinner in just a few minutes, clean up after prep in just a few more and then have about 30 minutes to relax before dinner is ready. I appreciate that the recipes all use healthy foods and not cans of "cream of something" soup or other highly processed ingredients. I have found that many of the recipes (especially those with grains included) serve my husband and me for two nights. The enameled cast-iron dutch oven is a breeze to clean - it is like teflon if you spray it first as recommended.
After hearing Elizabeth speak at one of her book signing parties, I am also eager to branch out from the published recipes and try some one-pot versions of our old time favorite foods. This really is fool-proof cooking if you follow just a few basic guidlines - the right pot at the right temperature for the right amount of time.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to eat delicious, healthy meals with little effort.
