One Pan Wonders for quick midweek dinners

These one pan dishes will make weeknight dinners stress free!

The question “What’s for dinner?” is often the last thing you want to hear at the end of a long day when you’re struggling to find the time and motivation to cook, let alone wash up.

That’s where one pan recipes come in. There’s a lot to love about one pan meals – less clutter, less fuss, and of course, fewer dishes to wash at the end of the night – your answer to quick and easy weeknight dinners!

These recipes eliminate the need to figure out what sides to cook with your main dish, because each recipe provides your protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates in one dish!

One pan meals are different in every culture: Italians stir up a creamy risotto, while Spanish steam a fragrant paella, but what they all have in common is the gift of home cooking accompanied by little fuss and minimal clean-up, with delicious ingredients all rolled into one big happy dish.

Just like all of our other recipes, these one pan wonders can be on your table in 30 minutes or less. Some of our favourite one pan ideas include pastas, curries, and so much more; our menu is always bursting with one pan recipes to help make mealtimes a breeze. 

Look no further, we’ve got your weeknight meals covered. Read on for some examples of our most popular one pan wonders.
