How to Make a One Dish Meal on the Stovetop



I enjoy one dish meals that I can make on the stovetop like this Fiesta skillet dinner I'm making it's an easy way to cook since I don't need multiple recipes or dishes and it gets my family the nutrition they need because it includes a variety of foods if you would like to use the one dish approach for a meal for your family start by finding a recipe that includes three or four food groups in the dish this could be vegetables grains protein or dairy the spud smart eat smart website has many recipes for one dish meals simply add a glass of milk to drink and fruit for dessert and you have all five food groups in one meal some one dish meals are available in the freezer section of the grocery store or is a boxed meal that meat is added to but making your own is really simple quick and usually costs less plus you know exactly what's going into it like lean protein and whole grains so you know your family's getting a healthy meal another great thing about one dish meals is that older children and teenagers can easily prepare these since most recipes are simple this is a great way to get them involved in the kitchen and teach them about nutrition for my fiesta skillet dinner I have brown rice mexican style tomatoes black beans corn diced chicken shredded cheddar cheese and chili powder i start with the instant brown rice I like brown rice because it's a whole grain and is a better source of fiber many minerals and most B vitamins you make instant brown rice just like instant white rice but it takes a little longer to cook you can easily substitute brown rice when a recipe asks for white rice and increase the nutrition in your meal then I combine and heat up all the ingredients once mixed together and topped with some cheese this meal is ready to go a one-dish meal is that simple one pan a few ingredients a little prep work and your family is ready to enjoy a delicious meal you you you can check out a couple easy one dish recipes in our description for more on making brown rice check out our website
