A broken oven can cause serious headaches come teatime, robbing you and your family of quite a few meal options. Of course, our wide range of oven spares makes it easy to get everything working again, but while you’re waiting for your replacement parts to arrive, here are a few delicious meals that you can do on the hob. No oven required!
- Spaghetti Bolognese
An Italian classic that can be cooked entirely in saucepans. Boil the spaghetti in one pan, cook the sauce in another (recipes vary, but this is a good one), and slap them together for a yummy meal that everyone will enjoy. Vegetarians can use Quorn mince instead of minced beef, while vegans might swap the mince for peppers and use egg-free whole wheat spaghetti.
- Chilli Con Carne
Spag bol’s Tex-Mex cousin, if you will. Here’s a recipe for you to follow – chilli con carne is a tasty mixture of mince, diced vegetables, red kidney beans, and sauce. Oh, and you can boil some rice to go with it, too. Again, veggies can replace the mince with something more suitable, although as ‘chilli con carne’ is Spanish for ‘chilli with meat’, you might want to call it something different.
Another one from down Mexico way. This one is simple; just throw some chicken, some peppers, and whatever else you fancy into a frying pan. Then, once everything’s cooked, spoon the mixture into flour tortillas, wrap ‘em up, and enjoy!
Oven failure is a nuisance, but on the upside, such occasions can give you an opportunity to broaden your repertoire a little. Still, if you just want to get your oven working again, bear in mind that we do offer a next day delivery option – your parts will be with you ASAP, and your oven will be up and running again before you know it.
