Poem 93 of 230:  ONE-POT COOKING

While living as a bachelor,
    I’ve cooked in just one pot -
Cast-iron with a wooden handle,
    It can hold quite a lot:

In a locally-grown rapeseed oil,
    Sweat onions a while;
Adding a powdered-veggie-soup stock,
    Plus greens, to the pile;

Then, with this vegan-mix nearly done,
    Add canned lentils or beans.
Served with some toast plus tomato sauce,
    To an end, it's a means.
