Vegetarian Solar Oven Recipes

A quick and yummy casserole...
without heating your kitchen up in the summer.

Here's your basic solar oven recipes for vegetarians...

Take a lightweight solar stove outside with you to your garden and have at it. Just like in the following video!!

I know I cheated using store bought veggies. I was lazy that day! Harvesting directly from your garden will improve the taste, the nutritional value and your well being.

Easier and Quicker to Prepare

You might prefer an even easier and quicker preparation. Just throw all of the ingredients into the pot at once. No pre-cooking of the onions and pepper. Drizzle olive oil or Italian Dressing over everything for a seasoned sauce.

In the case of using raw ingredients, I'd suggest using a sweet onion instead of a red one. You might also stick in a thinly sliced red bell pepper . Gee, now that I think of it, ANY veggie combo that you liked steamed will work here.

When you see steam condensing on the inside of the cooking bag, your meal is ready to enjoy!

Your favorite slow cooker recipes will work in this solar stove. The cooking temperatures are almost identical to a crockpot on "high", the cooking just as carefree...and this is much more portable!

Keeps the heat out of your kitchen, too.

I seasonally frequent U-Pick Berry and Fruit farms. If it's sunny, I'll pre-pack the dry ingredients for a cobbler or some such. Upon arrival, I'll quickly pick enough of whatever to stick in my cooker to bake in the sun. After my harvesting is done, there is a hot, sweet treat to feast on and maybe share.

Some farms are sharp enough to sell ice cream at check out. That would be Heaven with your baked fruit!

If you are efficient and think ahead...

You'll be preparing your brown rice or quinoa with a second solar stove out in the sun alongside your main dish for your evening meal .
