Here is a challenge for you all!
What recipes can you recommend when you have a broken oven? My oven has been broken for a week now, and although it is very close to being fixed (I hope), I am really struggling with what to cook! There is only so much pasta you can eat, lol. So...any ideas? My cupboards are mostly stoked with pulses, grains, pastas, and my fridge is full of vegetables (I'm a vegetarian). Oh and cheese. We seem to eat a lot of cheese in this house. Can anybody help me?

How about a nice vegetable stew?

What are pulses?  I've heard the term before but I never can remember... Undecided

They're pretty much red and green lentils. A vegetable stew sounds nice, but I usually cook that in a casserole dish in the oven. How would I go about it oven-less? I've been so stuck in my ways!

If you hve a dutch oven, on the stovetop. Or even in a crockpot. I use my crockpot to death. And I have a Presto Kitchen Kettle that I got around this time 12 years ago that's still going strong :knocks wood:.

Don't know if you like them, but stir-fry and curry popped into my mind, as both are easily done on the stovetop.  Stove top soups, stews and cassoulets are a favorite around here as well, as are rice pilafs and risottos, all of which can be made without meat.

Hope your oven gets well soon!  Wink

What's a cassoulet?

Basically, it's a French term for a rich, very hearty bean stew.  Traditionally, they're made with white beans and meat, but I make a vegetarian version that's basically beans, tomatoes and various vegetables stewed together.  Very nice with fresh bread when the weather gets cold.

Ah, ok.

Around here, we tend to fix bean soup which is nothing more than pinto beans in water with ham, if we have it, and an onion. Put it all into a pressure cooker and cook for about four hours, check it (be sure to let your pressure cooker depressurize before you open the lid or it will explode!  Shocked {basic info for those of us who may have never used one before. Wink}) and, if necessary, put the lid back on and cook longer.

We also make split pea soup and potato soup in the pressure cooker.

Actually most of what you name, I would cook stovetop or crockpot, not in the oven.

Yes, thankyou! There was a crockpot in there which I had no clue about. Did you magically make it appear? Lol. I think it must be my mother-in-law's.
