Eating gluten-free doesn’t mean living off of rice, beans, and meat alone, but when you run into a busy evening, it can be tempting to just reach for a frozen meal. Instead, try one of these simple, flavorful one-pot GF dinner recipes. Keep reading for the soon-to-be favorite dishes that’ll save you time and effort.

1. Mermaid Veggie Bowl: Like a poke bowl, this veggie-friendly lunch is easily customizable with whatever chopped veggies you have on hand. Be sure to use gluten-free tamari in place of the soy sauce. (via Brit + Co)

2. One-Pot Roasted Tomato Soup: If the canned stuff tastes so good, you’d better believe that tomato soup made from scratch is even better. Pair with a grilled cheese sandwich made with your favorite gluten-free bread for an even heartier meal. (via Brit + Co)

3. One-Bowl Wintry Quinoa Salad: A hearty bowl of red quinoa paired with walnuts, pomegranate arils, and parsley is an effortless way to eat clean in the new year. (via Brit + Co)
