Re: One pot Meals

risotto but i'm not sure if it's a true one pot meal as you don't tend to add it all at the start

Re: One pot Meals

I love one-pot meals and have posted many of my favorites in other threads.  It's a dish that is complete enough that you can serve it as the whole meal or with a small salad.

This one looked good to me, haven't tried it yet.

Turkey and Black Bean Tamale Pie
by Rick Rodgers

Try substituting hominy for the black beans, or adding a chopped green bell pepper to the saucepan with the onion. 
   
Ingredients
2 tablespoons   olive oil
1 medium   onion, chopped
1   jalapeņo, seeded and minced
2   garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons   all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons   chili powder, or more to taste
2 cups   homemade turkey stock or canned reduced-sodium broth
One 8-ounce can   tomato sauce
1 teaspoon   salt, divided
3 cups   cooked turkey, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 12 ounces)
One 15 1/2-
ounce can   black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup   thawed frozen corn kernels
1 1/2 cups   yellow cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
1 cup   shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese (4 ounces)

Method
1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly oil a 9-by-3-inch baking dish.

2. In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeņo, and cook, stirring often, until the onion is golden, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with the flour and chili powder, and stir until vegetables are coated.

3. Gradually stir in the broth, then the tomato sauce and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring often to avoid scorching, until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Stir in the turkey, black beans, and corn. Pour into the prepared dish.

4. In another medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water and the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt to a boil over high heat. In a small bowl, whisk the cornmeal with 1 1/2 cups cold water. Whisk into the boiling water and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thick and boiling, about 1 minute. Spread over the turkey mixture as smoothly as possible. Sprinkle with the cheese.

5. Bake until the turkey mixture is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
