The past six months have been charged with countless anxieties, from sterilising deliveries to whatever gobbledygook the government might next advise and (in my case) shielding a small child. But in our household, nothing has tested frayed nerves more than the production line of unwashed dishes following meal after meal made at home. They are the guaranteed proverbial last straw.
The appeal of cooking from a single vessel (and so minimising that pile of washing up) has never shone brighter. Often, one-pot meals are associated with meat cooked low and slow in the colder months. But these one-pot wonders are meat-free and can, in most cases, be made year-round.
