As busy as most people are nowadays, it’s nice to know that everyone can put good, healthy meals on the table using just one pot. Lauren Keating shows us how in her cookbook, Healthy Eating One-Pot Cookbook: 101 Effortless Meals for Your Instant Pot, Sheet Pan, Skillet and Dutch Oven. This isn’t a diet cookbook, and it doesn’t feature over-the-top tree-hugger style dishes; rather, this cookbook contains recipes that friends and families will actually want to eat.

One of the best parts of this cookbook is the fact that it covers several different methods of doing a “one-pot” meal: sheet pan, Instant Pot, slow cooker, air fryer, skillet, and Dutch oven. Even those who don’t have Instant Pots or air fryers can use these excellent recipes with their basic cookware. However, some of the recipes are so tempting, many cooks will want to add these appliances to their collection.

The recipes are succinct and easy-to-follow – suitable for beginners on up. Most have minimal ingredients and are fairly quick and easy. Besides mouthwatering dishes that are on the healthy side, there are some basics like marinara sauce and an all-purpose Greek Dressing that doubles as a marinade. Favorite dishes include Thai Basil Chicken, Red Curry Salmon with Vegetables, Sheet Pan Jerk Chicken with Potatoes and Green Beans, and Carne Asada Tacos. In the queue are the Sweet Potato Fritters with Chipotle Sauce, and the clever Sheet Pan Bacon & Eggs, as well as Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon & Pecans. There are also some desserts, like Cranberry Oatmeal Bars and Pumpkin Pie Rice Pudding.

There is something for every taste in this excellent cookbook. The only negative is that there are very few photographs of the dishes. In this modern day, when photography is so easy, even for us at home, there is really no excuse not to photograph every one of the dishes in the book. Cooks want to know what their finished dish is going to look like.

There are enough good recipes to keep almost everyone busy for a very long time. If you’re not bothered by the lack of photographs, this is a great book to add to every recipe collection.
