Five Meals You Can Make Without a Stove

Is your stove on the fritz? Do you only own a hot plate? Do you live in the tropics and can’t bear the thought of more heat? Try these easy meals that require no cooking.

Pita Sandwiches

This incredibly healthy meal requires pita pockets (preferably whole wheat), hummus, yogurt, feta cheese, cucumber, tomato, and maybe some meat.


Granted, this one requires a blender, which is more specialized than a stove. But if you have both a blender and leftover vegetables, you can make a cold, healthy, refreshing soup!

Greek Salad

Apparently Greeks are great at no-cook meals. If you think that Greek salad won’t fill you up, just add some protein and maybe a piece of bread on the side.

Avocado and White Bean Wrap

You thought that sandwiches were boring, or even cheating, when it comes to dinner? Think again. This wrap combines delicious, filling avocado with protein-filled white beans, tangy cole slaw, and your favorite cheese.

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Although you can cook these ingredients—the beans and the corn—you can also buy them canned or frozen (for the corn). The basic recipe is simple, and you can alter it depending on how spicy you like it, whether you want more or less onion, whether you think a little avocado would improve it, etc.
