After a few weeks of our Pantry Plan we are fully settling into pantry cooking and embracing all of the fun and adventure that comes with it. You may not have all of the ingredients required in each of these recipes but don't let that stop you from making your own version and getting creative! We hope you use this guide as inspiration to turn out healthy and hearty meals while riding out this storm at home. Stay safe, be well and take some comfort in the kitchen.
Things to Use This Week: Use this as a guide for what to stock up on at the store, or what to grab from your pantry.
Fresh or Frozen Fruit
Things to Prep Ahead This Week: We realize some of the items we rely on from the store each week may be difficult to come by. Here are a few basics you might want to consider making yourself to be as resourceful as possible and to add lots of flavor to your pantry meals!
Marinated beans or tofu Nut Milk
Blanch, shock, and freeze excess vegetables
Hearty Legumes and Beans!
Legumes and beans are a great source of plant based protein and there's so much you can do with them! Throw them into curry, salads and bowls; or turn them into dips and spreads for veggies and sandwiches!
Don't have chickpeas? Substitute for kidney or black beans, spinach can be substituted for kale or any frozen greens you might have on hand. Don't have rice? Quinoa or a bowl of orzo would be delicious too.
