We have to eat. It’s a necessity for all that messy breathing, heart beating, brain function stuff. But that doesn’t mean we always have the time, the mental or physical energy to spend thirty minutes in the kitchen whipping up something nutritious and delicious.
You can opt for nutritious only, but what would be the point?
One of my favorite things to create when I’m not in the mood to cook, is a one pot meal. You can prep as you go, rinsing, chopping and weighing the food before tossing it into a casserole dish. Season everything together and toss, then all you have to do is pop it in the oven.
Alternately, you can cook any one pot vegan meal on a baking sheet if you want to diversify the flavor profile of the different vegetables.
Either way, it’s a lot less dishes and the oven does all the work. Where’s the flaw in that vegan recipe?
This is a one pot vegan meal that you add to the rotation because the ingredients are so simple.

If you want to cut down on the cooking time, boil the potatoes first otherwise you’ll need to add them to the oven first, adding the rest of the vegetables according to cooking time. OR…cut everything as uniform as possible.
Season with salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, and smoky paprika. If you love it like I do, add a teaspoon or two of cumin for that smoky deliciousness.
Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until the potatoes can be easily punctured with a fork, let it cool.
For the scallions, cook them with a little char or add them at the end for a bite of freshness on your plate.
And there you have it, a delicious one pot vegan meal with vegetables, vegan sausage and one of the best things one art…POTATOES. Change up this meal by using different vegetables, vegan meat alternatives or even adding grains if you’re not dead set on a truly one pot meal.
