One-pot meals are exactly what we all need right now. Let's be honest, the week between Christmas and New Year is a no (wo)man's land of leftovers, bits of cheese and if you're lucky, some stale crackers. But let's level up a little here. Not much though. It is time to rest and recharge. So, one-pot meals, but make them healthy. And super bonus points if they're 30 minutes or less! And of course... all ingredients are from Aldi.
