The effect of a broken dishwasher on cooking…

I’ve been having some dishwasher problems recently.  There seems to be something wrong with the pump, and its probably related to some recent drain problems we’ve been having, so I haven’t been able to use it.  I’m really not a fan of washing up and with a small kitchen the dishwasher also ends up acting as storage, so in the absence of being able to use it my menu planning has revolved around dinners that can cook in a maximum of two pans or dishes.

https://space1026.com/2024/01/m3dvyizv8f So I thought I would share my one-pot meals for keeping the washing up down whilst the dishwasher is broken.  This is my menu for the five days it hasn’t been working:

Chicken and root veg casserole – chop up some chicken and vegetables including a bit of onion, add some chicken stock and herbs and spices of your choice and pop it in the oven for a couple of hours.  I included some potato so I didn’t do any other kind of accompaniment.  Stir in a spoonful of cornflour half an hour before the end of the cooking time to thicken the sauce up.  I quite like Moroccan style spices at the moment, they are very warming in the winter – some turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper.  I think the original of this recipe was a slow cooker recipe but it transfers well to a standard casserole.

Prawn and chorizo rice – this needs one pan to cook some rice in, and then a frying pan to cook some chorizo with onion and garlic.  Add the rice and the prawns and some turmeric, and a bit of veg if you fancy it – peas and mushrooms are good.  Squeeze some lemon juice over the cooked dish.

So there you have it, ideas for creating less washing up.  Hopefully the dishwasher will get fixed or I shall have investigate the one pot recipe book I have somewhere.  Or I suppose I could just get to grips with the washing up!
