Here on Primavera Kitchen, we are huge advocates of delicious homemade meals. However, figuring out what to make and then cooking day after day can be really stressful and tiring, especially when you don’t have much time to cook. After a hard day of work and a long commute to get home the last thing we want is to take more than 30 minutes to make our dinner. I get that and that’s why I created this recipe roundup for you.
I’ve compiled a list of 45 one-pan dinner recipes for busy weeknights that are uncomplicated, healthy, and loaded with vegetables. We love one-pan recipes because not only is it easy to make, clean up is a breeze since at most you’re using your pan or pot and a cutting board to prep your ingredients. Just make your way down the list of one pot meals here whenever you need an idea on what to make!
What is a One-Pan Meal?
So what is a one-pan meal? We use the term pan here a little broadly as one pan can be a traditional pot, an Instant Pot, a Dutch oven, a sheet pan, a skillet, a cast iron, and more. As long as the entire recipe only requires one cooking vessel, it falls under a one-pan meal!
What Do I Use to Cook These Meals In?
I recommend getting a quality heavy bottomed pot such as a Dutch oven or a cast-iron pan. However, it’s up to you to use what you have on hand since these recipes can be adapted to different pots and pans. Some of these recipes might be for an Instant Pot but can be adapted for the stovetop.
Can These Recipes Be Meal Prepped?
Yes! A majority of these one-pan recipes can be meal prepped! Make your Sunday meal prep less stressful and faster with these one-pan meals. Simply divide up the recipes into your meal prep containers and once cooled, store in your fridge. You’ll have your lunches or dinner ready in a jiffy on the weekdays!
What Type of Recipes Are These?
The one-pan recipes chosen are all healthy recipes that your whole family will love! If you’ve got guests, these recipes also fall under other categories such as paleo, keto, Whole30, gluten-free, etc so they’re super accommodating for everyone.
