      HOTSHOT HOTPOTS

      One pot cooking

      by Judy Ridgway

      One pot cooking provides a meal in itself. The dishes are very easy to prepare. All the ingredients are thrown into the pot and the dish is left to cook itself - either on top of the stove or in the oven. This type of food fits well into current healthy eating guidelines. Most one-pot dishes are high in carbohydrates and vegetables and low in fat. Very often the meat or fish is there for flavouring rather than as the main ingredient. The dishes are fun to serve either as a family meal or when entertaining friends.
