What are the measurements for dry goods when making a Glorious One-Pot Meals recipe in a 4.5-quart Dutch oven?
A 4.5-quart Dutch oven will perfectly feed 5 people, probably with a few leftovers. Since the recipes in the Glorious One-Pot Meals cookbook are based on feeding 2 people, simply multiply the amounts by 2.5 (in other words, double the recipe and then add another half amount). Here are some dry good measurements you can use with a 4.5-qt Dutch oven:
2 1/2 cups pasta with 1 cup liquid
2 1/2 cups rice with 2 1/2 cups + 3 Tbsp liquid
1 1/2 cups couscous with 1 1/2 cups liquid
2 1/4 cups quinoa with 2 1/2 cups liquid
1 1/2 cup polenta with 4 1/2 cup liquid
3/4 cup barley with 1 1/2 cup liquid
