Halogen ovens have been available in most countries now for a long time, offering a big reduction in cooking time, usually by up to 60 percent and cooking delicious foods every time. Due to their energy efficiency, people can end up spending less whenever they use halogen ovens, which makes them an excellent investment that is also very inexpensive, too. Halogen ovens are popular due to their ability to cook simple, healthy snacks and desserts that have a great taste, so if you are seeking new recipes that you can try, here are a three that you will definitely enjoy.

Ham and Cheese Toasties

If you want to enjoy a quick, easy and delicious snack, these ham and cheese toasties will definitely be appealing to you. To prepare them, you only need eight thin slices of cheddar cheese, eight slices of honey roast ham (trimmed to fit the size of the bread slice), butter to spread on the bread, eight thick slices of freshly-baked white bread and two teaspoons of English mustard.
Preparation: put butter on one side of each bread slice right up to the edges, and place on a large silicon mat butter side down spreading right to the edges. Put a slice of ham right on the side where you have not applied butter, followed by mustard and, in the end, a slice of cheddar cheese. Put another slice of bread on top, with the buttered side up.
Go through the same process until you have four toasties. Place them in the halogen oven and cook them at 250 degrees Celsius until they become very slightly brown. Turn them over and continue to grill them until they get slightly brown on the other side, as well. When they are done, turn the halogen over off, cut the toasties diagonally and serve them along with chopped cabbage, sprinkle of grinded carrot on top salt and, if you want, a teaspoon of lemon juice.

Roasted Vegetables

If you are a veggie and want to cook a healthy meal rapidly, this roasted vegetables recipe will be surely a great and tasty option for you. To prepare this recipe, you will need sea salt, two quartered white onions, three quartered large chestnut mushrooms, one courgette (sliced at an angle), ten cloves of garlic left whole with skin on, one red, green, yellow and orange pepper (deseeded and thickly sliced), one teaspoon of mixed herbs, two tablespoons of olive oil, twelve cherry tomatoes on the vine, four small new potatoes (skins scrubbed and unpeeled) and black pepper to taste.
Preparation: place all vegetables in a large round deep roasting dish, along with olive oil, sprinkle them with the mixed herbs and add season to taste. Place the dish in the halogen oven, set the temperature to 210 degrees Celsius and the timer to 35 minutes. To prevent roasting the vegetables too much, be sure to sprinkle them with boiled water, as this will enable them to cook beautifully. You can serve them with your favorite dressing or, why not, with a handful of chia or quinoa seeds.

Peanut Butter and Banana Bread

Peanut butter can be used for a wide array of purposes, being a versatile ingredient that can contribute to preparing both healthy and delicious snacks. To prepare this recipe, you need one teaspoon of baking soda, quarter coup of sour cream, four bananas, 1 and 1/2 cups flour, a quarter cup of peanut butter, an egg, quarter cup of walnuts, 3/4 cup of butter, half a teaspoon of vanilla, one cup of sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and allspice.
Preparation: melt the butter, mash the bananas and beat an egg into a bowl. Add a mixture of vanilla, sugar and a dash of salt, and chop the walnuts. Add the baking soda, peanut butter, cream, allspice and a dash of cinnamon. Mix all ingredients together, then add the flour slowly, only quarter cup at a time, mixing constantly. Place everything in the halogen oven, set the temperature to 210 degrees Celsius and the timer to 20 minutes. If you notice that the bread is not properly cooked, you can turn it over and restart the halogen oven.
When it is done, leave it to cool at least twenty minutes, then slice it as desired and enjoy it!
