10 Fast One-Bowl Meals for When You're Ready to Quit Cooking - Recipes from The Kitchn
From The Kitchn - November 1, 2017

Despite my love for cooking, there are more nights than I care to admit when I have zero motivation, energy, or interest in cooking dinner. But I also do not want to resort to frozen pizza or another night of takeout. It's for these nights that I believe we all need a short roster of quick and reliable dinners to turn to when cooking feels like a monumental task. Here are 10 fast weeknight recipes I can whip up when I just do not want to cook.

1. Gingery Poached Egg Soup

Ready to feel like a real dinnertime superhero? In under 15 minutes you can make this ginger- and garlic-infused soup that's full of greens, plus eggs that are poached right in the simmering soup.

2. Broccolini, Chicken Sausage, and Orzo Skillet

Even with zero motivation, you have got this one! Tender Broccolini, spicy chicken sausage, and orzo pasta come together in one skillet to make a creamy, satisfying dinner that only requires a bowl and a fork.

3. Brown Butter Parmesan Pasta

These buttered noodles with Parmesan and crispy panko breadcrumbs are super comforting and nearly effortless to pull together.

4. Easy One-Pot Chicken Taco Soup

Loaded with juicy shreds of chicken, hearty black beans, and a smoky, spiced broth, this is a bold-flavored, weeknight-friendly soup easy enough to tackle when cooking is the last thing on your mind. It comes together with mostly pantry staples, and the chicken breast cooks right in the soup.

5. Crispy White Beans with Greens and Poached Egg

Grab whatever kind of greens you have hanging out in the fridge, a can of beans from the pantry, and a couple eggs. To make this meal even easier, I like frying the eggs in the same skillet used to cook the beans and greens.

6. Gnocchi with Spinach, Bacon, and Blue Cheese

7. White Rotisserie Chicken Chili

8. One-Pot 30-Minute Zoodles and Meatballs

9. Instant Pot Weeknight Chicken and Rice Burrito Bowls

10. Tomato Tortellini Soup
