You guys, I came across a bunch of "wonderpot" recipes on Pinterest and I was so intrigued. They are "pots" of food cooked together all at once on the stovetop. Some of the photos made them look so yummy and I'm all about easy family meals that are made more or less from scratch. I kept my expectations low and decided to make the Spinach Artichoke wonderpot because I was so curious.
Well, as expected I was correct to keep my expectations in check. This was pretty plain and bland. Not horrible, though. I sprinkled some shredded mozzarella on mine and that helped a lot. I think the main problem here is that the dish is virtually fat free, vegan, and low in salt. That combination is bound to be pretty not-so-great in my opinion. But I will say it was very fun tossing everything in the pot and only having to worry about stirring every now and then. It was very low stress but just domestic enough to hold my interest.
I actually still have some curiosity about these recipes and want to explore other, higher fat wonderpots. Something with meat and/or cream would be ideal.
What about you? Have you seen these pins going around? Are you going to try one?
