Grab your skillet and let’s get cooking! These skillet meals only take your skillet or cast iron pan to come together without much effort. You can do so much with just one pan. The best part is that you can sautee veggies or a meal, and then place it in the oven to bake without changing pans. (Be sure to check what temperature your skillet can handle.)
We also highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App — with over 15,000 delicious recipes it is the largest plant-based recipe resource to help you get healthy! And, don’t forget to check out our Meal Plan Archives!
