Overview

A totally new patented way to cook quick and easy one-pot meals, while keeping ingredients intact and full of flavor.


Elizabeth Yarnell developed her revolutionary infusion-cooking method to avoid often mushy slow-cooker results and to make cooking and cleaning up after dinner a breeze. Now anyone with too many tasks and not enough time can use her technique to get dinner on the table in an hour or less, with no more than twenty minutes of hands-on prep work—and just one pot to clean. All it takes is a Dutch oven and a few basic fresh or even frozen ingredients layered--never stirred. Glorious One-Pot Meals provides the most convenient method yet of serving highly nutritious, satisfying suppers every night of the week.

Editorial Reviews

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.)

Glorious One-Pot Meals offers tons of variety, from the fabulously ordinary to the incredibly extraordinary.

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.

My husband and I really love this cookbook. He saw it advertised and suggested I purchase it. We have tried many recipes from the book and will do more once the fall and winter come again. I plan on giving a copy of the cookbook and a 3 quart pot to both my adult children for Christmas ! Thanks for writing such a great , easy-to-use book.

My husband and I love this book. The recipes are tasty, easy to follow, simple to make, and very, very, easy to clean up after. Much easier than crock-pot cooking, some recipes only take about 15 minutes to prepare, and then you just sit back and let the oven do the work for 35-60 mins, depending on the contents and the quantity you are cooking. I found I could prepare the recipes in a stainless steel casserole, but that they did work better in a cast-iron dutch casserole.

the recipes in this book are diverse and healthy. my only complaint is that for the ebook format some of the measurements do not show up, but are instead question marks.

Great cookbook for those who want to eat healthy, and also have dinner on the table with 10-20 minutes of hands-on time. Then, put the meal in the oven for around 35-40 minutes, and then you smell your delicious dinner. Have tried four totally different meals, all amazing, all healthy and satisfying. Little clean-up -- just one pan -- just soak for a few minutes and it's easy to clean without scrubbing.

I've enjoyed the book so far and have tried some of the recipes. What I like the most is the authors tips on how to vary the recipe and the explanation on how the Dutch oven works. I'm a novice so this helps!!

Far and above my favorite cookbook ever! My copy is now dog eared after about 3 years of use through the Spring, Fall, and Winter (no oven cooking in the Summer for me). I'm buying 2 copies today for Christmas gifts. My pen name below should be Sebastiansarrow but the site seems to refuse to process that - only pointing this out because (B&N should fix the bug AND) this is not truly an anonymous post.

Have made two recipes and loved them both. It teaches a method of cooking that you can adapt to your own tastes. Lots of room for creativity.
