Pantry list


recipe thursdayRecently, I've run out of some of the basic items in my pantry and I feel naked without them. But before I restock, I thought I'd take stock and see how many different meals I can create with my basics.

In the pantry cupboard:

  • Whole tomatoes (canned)
  • Tuna in oil
  • Anchovies
  • Green olives
  • Black olives
  • Cream of mushroom soup
  • White and brown rices
  • Pastas of various shapes
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin
  • Salt, pepper, dried garlic chips
  • Olive oil, basalmic vinegar
  • Bullion cubes

And in the fridge:

  • Eggs
  • Onions
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Butter
  • Mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise

From these items, I can make

  1. Pasta Putenesca
  2. Pasta with garlic oil and anchovies
  3. Spaghetti with tuna and olives
  4. Tuna noodle casserole
  5. Risoto
  6. Rice casserole
  7. Tomato soup
  8. Onion soup
  9. Omelettes
  10. Biscuits
  11. Onion rings

And I imagine there are more dishes to be found in that list.

What invaluable items are in your pantry? Do I need to revise my list?


I'd add beans (dried and canned) and in the frig, carrots and celery.
