what to cook with one hand?
and it's not even my dominant hand!
got my right wing in a sling. can't chop. can't hold too much. managed some soup from dried porcinis with an alligator chopper yesterday but it's hard to hold a cup and wield a spoon at the same time...
I had the same problem on January, carpal tunnel surgery on my left (non-dominant) hand. The hard part was to hold something steady to chop. My DH, my food processor and some pre-cut veggies were a help. Luckily time passes more quickly than you imagine and you'll be back at it soon. Good luck.
An earlier post from a couple of years ago:
Do you have a mini chopper (one of those push things that chop in a small glass container? That would help immensely with chopping.
With precut veggies and chicken or shrimp, you could do a stir-fry.
Pasta and jarred sauces, altho draining the pot of pasta could be tough - perhaps just use a spaghetti-tong-thingie to fish the spaghetti out of the water.
Mini burgers on small rolls (easy to pick up with one hand).
And perhaps some ideas from a thread on another site <g>: http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?s...
