Have a solar collector focusing sunlight onto coils containing a high-temperature-capable fluid. Tubing would carry the very hot fluid (800 degrees F or so) into the house, into a "radiator" in the bottom of the oven in the kitchen. The radiator heats the oven, and you cook your food normally.

For temperature control, the pump that moves the fluid could be variable-speed, and shades could be drawn over the soloar collector to either block or limit the amount of solar energy absorbed. You could also have vents at the top and bottom of the oven for airflow.
