Pantry Hero's Week - Edition One
This is the week when we sing the praises of those hard working staples - those little life savers who hang about in the pantry, just waiting to jump up and say "pick me, you can make dinner out of me!"
Edition One sees us meeting The Cans.
Love a good Can - who doesn't!
Basic Can must-haves are as follows:
Tomatoes: Diced, Whole and Cherry - these little beauties are the basis of Pasta sauce, soup, salsa, stews and braises.
Beans: Baked Beans, Kidney beans, Black beans and White - Beans can be a meal in these selves (hello there Baked Beans!) or add interest to an Mexican dish, salad or pattie
Chick Peas: Hummus and salad
Lentils: Salads and soups
Fruit: a snappy dessert option - done. Only got yogurt in the fridge? Add some tinned fruit and bam, there's breakfast. Fruit Crumble - easy!
Having a basic stock of can staples is a total sanity saver and an inexpensive way to provide some fast, simple meals.....love love love a good Can!
