One Pot Favourites by Pete Evans: Book review


I own a few of Pete Evan’s paleo cookbooks and I love them all. I was keen to see if his latest cookbook ‘One Pot Favourites’ lived up to my expectations.

The cookbook features one hundred meals to roast, braise and slow cook. You can adapt the recipes, but you may like to invest in a slow cooker or pressure cooker.

All of the recipes are paleo friendly, so they don’t contain dairy, legumes, grains or refined sugar.


We tried the tikka masala recipe but swapped the chicken for lamb. The instructions were easy to follow and dinner was delicious. We served it with steamed rice, but to keep it paleo you could use cauliflower rice.

There are chapters devoted to vegetables, seafood, poultry, pork, lamb, goat, game and beef. You’ll be tempted by recipes for creamy cauliflower and coconut curry, whole roasted salmon with lemon and herbs, congee, Jewish penicillin (chicken soup), duck vindaloo, and porchetta with crispy crackling. The recipes come from all around the world from Bali, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, Malaysia, France, Ethiopia, Peru, South Africa, Jamaica and the Middle East.

I’ve bookmarked a few recipes for dinner next week and I can’t wait to try another hearty meal from this cookbook.

Highly recommended.

One Pot Favourites by Pete Evans is available to purchase from Dymocks online or in one of their book stores.

  1. I bought this book last week and have tried several recipes from it so far – we’re definitely not a paleo family, but I cook a LOT and try to keep it as healthy as possible. I love these recipes, they are brilliant. So far we’ve had the Pepper Chicken Masala, South African Chicken Curry, Lamb Kofta Curry and Beef Bourginon (or however you spell it lol) – all have resulted in meals worthy of a restaurant and my house full of boys are very happy. Highly recommend, particularly if you love a good curry.
