HELP - meals with no oven?

not having any luck tracking down an element for my oven and I'm really starting to miss it

what sort of things can I make that can be cooked entirely on the hob, in the microwave or in a slow cooker? I make bread every day in the breadmaker and that seems to make our dull vegetable soups a bit more filling. other than that and pasta I'm drawing a bit of a blank and craving pizza so severely!

we don't really eat meat, well 2 of the children are quite keen on it but we haven't got any anyway grin

please share your amazing ideas - thanks!

my computer freaked out and wouldn't let me - I had to reboot it, probably worth another try though

Could you try one of these?

Have never tried one but it might be worth seeing if it works (wonder if there are cheaper ones though?)

mysterymoniker Sun 25-Jan-09 13:26:49

that looks cool doesn't it? there is a grill in the microwave too, maybe I won't need to fix the oven at all and will save a fortune in electricity bills!

Fish cakes?



Get a griddle and you can do lovely grilled meats with flavoured butters.

My oven packed up before Christmas and I couldn't afford to replace. I only had a single induction hob and slow cooker, cooking for 6 it's tricky. Currently saving to redo all the kitchen so I bought a halogen oven for around £25, honestly I'm surprised how good it is and easy to clean. It has given me more dinner options, even cooked the turkey in it, which turned out moist and less cooking time.

Brilliant! Thankyou 😊
