Yes, there are ways to make this task less miserable. The shortest path to washing fewer dishes is to create fewer dirty dishes.
1. One Pan Meals.
Think risotto, paella, pasta salad, a casserole, crock pot or Dutch oven recipe that can go from the stove straight to the dinner table.
2. Re-Use A Pan.
Just sautéed some veggies? Give the pan a quick wipe down before searing the steak.
3. Prep and Go.
Skip the prep bowl. Slice all your veggies into the pan, top with seasoning, and fire it up.
4. Parchment Paper
A god send! Line baking trays with parchment paper for burn-free easy cleaning. Line oven safe serving platters with parchment paper to bake fish or vegetables.
