20 No Chop Recipes Because Honestly Who Has The Time

Sometimes chopping just isn’t an option. Maybe like me this week you can’t use your dominant hand. Maybe you’re sick or just really tired and don’t have it in you to stand in the kitchen for long enough to do all of the things. You can always order takeout, but bank and artery-wise this list is probably better. Some of these recipes do require you to have things like pre-chopped frozen vegetables and kitchen gadgets, but others just need normal store cupboard ingredients. Also there’s nothing made with condensed soup on this list because that’s just creepy.
