It’s so hot here in NYC. I mean blaaaazzinnnngggg.
As you may know I have been using Blue Apron, and it’s completely changed the way I eat at home, but a lot of the meals require high heat! When you live in a tiny city apartment and your kitchenette is in your living room, it’s too damn hot to use the oven or even the stove top!
Since I’m on this cooking kick, I have been looking for recipes that aren’t going to steam up my apartment. Here are my top 5! Do you have any to add??
Soba noodles cook even faster than pasta, so that’s minimal stove time AND nothing else requires heat. Perfect!
So simple but so delicious! This recipe doesn’t call for lemon but I always add tons of lemon and a fresh loaf of bread.
The wrappers need to be heated a tiny bit but nothing major. One of my favorite things to eat in the summer.
A tuna sandwich might sound basic but my parents used to make them this way when I was a kid. It is anything but basic.
This also requires no cooking at all and corn in the summer is just plain wonderful.
