160+ No-Oven Dinner Recipe Ideas

Beat the heat and leave the oven off with these dinner recipes!

During hot summers (or if your oven happens to break, like mine) these recipes are sure to come in handy. I searched through the hundreds of recipes we have shared throughout the years and rounded up all of them that do not require an oven. I actually found over 160 no-oven dinner recipes, so I tried to organize them by cooking method and then by ingredient in order to help you find the recipes you want more easily.
