Pot on Gas Burner

One Pot or Oven Baked

For those days when you just can't face the washing up

I love one pot cooking, in fact, I have the perfect piece of kitchen equipment - an Instant Pot. If you've never heard of them they're a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yoghurt maker all combined into one. I use mine every day, sometimes twice or three times.

Because of this, I've included 'ordinary' instructions and instructions for Instant Pot users in my recipes. I've also added a link at the bottom of the page in case you're interested in getting one for yourself. It's an Amazon affiliate link so I make a small amount on any purchase, but the cost is the same for you!

Pumpkins

Zucca Speltotto

Pot

Zucca is Italian for squash or pumpkin and I eat LOADS of it. This recipe is kind of a risotto using Spelt , a really tasty, nutty grain, adapted from a River Cottage recipe.

Ratatouille

Ratatouille three ways!

Pot or oven

In the pan or oven baked I love Ratatouille. Mix it up a bit with a Turkish twist or  use it to top some toasted ciabatta and goats cheese for a kind of pizza

Daube De Boeuf
