Anytime I hear the word "diet," I assume it's going to be a lifestyle that's a whole lot of work to adhere to, with near impossible restrictions on what you can eat. And restrictions on what you can eat means cooking can be a huge pain.
The surefire way to ensure I will never, ever try something is to make cooking unpleasant. But simple, one-pot recipes, no matter what the diet, are welcome in my recipe box. One-Pot Paleo by Jenny Castaneda is full of simple paleo dishes that are all cooked in — you guessed it — one pot. Whether or not you follow a paleo diet, I'm willing to bet you will drool over these easy recipes.
Check out this superfast, 15-minute ginger chicken noodles. Of course, we're not talking pasta here — we're talking sweet potato noodles. Remember, it is paleo. And it looks delicious.
I made this dish for dinner one night when the original menu I had planned didn't push through, so I had to use ingredients I always have available in my fridge. The sweet potatoes held up to stir-frying, and they absorbed the seasonings really well. You won't be able to tell at first bite that there are no noodles in this light and savory dish.
A pressure cooker with gelatinous chicken pieces such as feet and necks produces the most nutrient-dense broth in less than an hour. I am never without bone broth in my freezer, because store-bought doesn't even come close!
Yields 4 to 5 cups (900 milliliters to 1.25 liters)
