When you start with a single Dutch oven or skillet, adding a meat-free night to your meal plan couldn’t be easier. These warming dinners embrace all the good things this season has to offer, like pumpkin, squash, and plenty of soups. But best of all each one starts with just one pot or skillet, which means dinner comes with the promise of quick and easy cooking, and an equally breezy cleanup.
