One-pot recipes that will actually make two meals
I designed these three recipes to be super-easy to make for dinner, and they taste even more delicious for a workday lunch the next day
Thai Chicken Salad
This is excellent as a salad or as a filling for a wrap. I like using Thai basil in this recipe; look for it at an Asian market. Cashews contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, and sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper, manganese, magnesium and iron.

Spicy Tofu Chili with Mango
Jalapeños range in heat. Before adding one to a recipe, I taste a small bit; if it’s really hot, I add less. Fennel has a licorice flavour and adds a nice crunch to the chili. Always rinse canned beans before adding them to a recipe to remove any excess sodium. You can replace the extra-firm tofu with tempeh; this will add more texture and a nutty, mushroomy flavor.

Vegetable & Pork Coconut Curry
I love my curry spicy, so I included a pinch of chili flakes to give it a bit of a kick-but leave it out if you aren’t a fan of heat. The beauty of a curry dish is that it’s versatile and will work with just about any meat or vegetables you have available.
