Recipes that can be made on a gas range..


I'm new here, but absolutely love your community from the browsing around I've done. I look forward to getting to know you all better!

I've been living the past 3 years in South Korea, where I teach English. I love everything here - except the limitations on my cooking hobby! Most apartments here don't have ovens, so I'm pretty strictly limited to what can be made on a gas range, rice cooker, or blender.

I was wondering if anyone had some standard recipe suggestions? I love the food here, and eating out is usually cheaper than cooking, but I enjoy cooking very much and would really like to build up a repertoire of things to make at home!

I've lost 120 pounds in the past year and a half, so I tend toward liking healthier, non-processed stuff (though, the occasional treat is more than in order!) and also, since I can easily go to a restaurant to get far better Korean food than I can cook - I usually shy away from cooking that, at least on an everyday basis.

The grocery stores are pretty well-stocked, especially in Seoul - but if the suggestions could shy away from more exotic ingredients (unless they are the eastern asian sort of exotic) that would be very helpful.

Right now, I kind of switch between a stir fry (chicken, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, garlic, onions, green onions sprinkled with lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper and cinammon over a bed of brown rice with some soy sauce) and the Spinach Pie Quesadilla recipe featured here: Cara's Spinach-Pie Quesadillas Quick Weeknight Meals Recipe Contest 2009 | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn

I'd love to get to about 5-7 standard, delicious, healthy recipes, and would GREATLY appreciate any and all suggestions in doing so!

Thanks so much! You guys are great!
