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”

If you don't already have a 2-qt. Le Creuset Dutch oven, go ahead and order it. You'll be glad you did (though it isn't necessary in order to enjoy this book--it just makes it even more fun).
Love, love, love this book!
I have also tried the author's suggestion of preparing the pot in the morning & then cooking it after work. I was skeptical the grain & water on the bottom would taste mushy, but it didn't. It worked!
The only problem I have had with this cookbook is my 13 year old daughter: she says the meals have too many vegetables! I, on the other hand, love that I am cooking with more variety of veggies.
My family and I have enjoyed many recipes from this book, and keep trying new ones. The whole idea is so simple and obvious, I don't know why I never thought of it, but even if I had, I would never have made these combinations! Last night's recipe mixed sweet potatoes, bananas, and jalapenos. Fabulous.
After making a few of the recipes, I was able to put a one-dish meal together with whatever I had on hand. Now I can follow a recipe, or skip the trip to the grocery store and shop my cupboard and freezer. Either way, we have a delicious, well-balanced meal, with little or no added fat. Everybody's happy!
I get the best results using fresh vegetables, and a broth called Better Than Bouillon, usually the vegetable base. Canned or frozen veggies do not always turn out well in these dishes.
Generally I approximate the amounts as well, depending on my supply, and how many I expect to table. I use quinoa or grits as the grain, avoiding rice and wheat due to various family members' sensitivities.
