One-Pot Recipes For Busy People

Have insane weeknights that don't leave much room for creating a delicious meal? You've come to the right spot. Our insanely easy one-pot meals are low on mess and ready in under 30 minutes or less! We promise, these recipes prove that a quick dinner doesn't have to be a dull one. 

One-Pan Baked Eggs: 

Perfect for vegetarians, and loaded with protein. This recipe also includes our Gold n' Garlic blend that will make your eggs a beautiful golden color and e[gg]xcellent taste!



Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium oven-proof fry pan over medium heat. Add sausages and cook until colored and golden. Add in carrot, and zucchini, stirring for 3–4 minutes or until softened. Add spice blend and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

Add tomatoes, stirring well to combine and bring to a simmer. If needed, add water to loosen the sauce. Stir in beans.

Using the back of a spoon, make 4 indentations in tomato mixture. Gently crack 1 egg into each indentation. Cook for 6–8 minutes or until egg whites have set but yolks are still soft.

Serve the whole dish to the table, dressing with olive oil, a shake of the Gold 'n Garlic and some crusty bread to soak up all the sauce.

One-Pot Salsa Verde Chicken

Upgrade your boring chicken and broccoli meal with this one-pot chicken recipe. It's creamy yet zesty with our Salsa Verde blend



Heat the oil and butter in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat until butter is foamy. Season the chicken with 2 tbsps of the Salsa Verde blend and add to the pan. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook the chicken for 5 minutes each side to until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.

Add the wine to a pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the cream and stock. Return the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced. Stir through the spinach until wilted. Season with 1 more tbsps of Salsa Verde blend. Serve with toasted bread.

Add remaining 1 1/2 tbsp of oil to the pan and add sliced mushrooms and onion. Cook mushrooms about 6-7 minutes, until cooked and slightly golden.

Add chicken back into the pan. Then stir in entire packet of Stroganoff Sauce. Add 1 cup of water. Stir well. Let simmer until sauce is at desired consistency and flavors have blended then mix in pasta.
