With a properly stocked pantry, you’ll be able to rustle up a satisfying dish – no matter how many mouths you need to feed.

We recommend stocking the following:

  • Beans (such as butter beans, cannellini, garbanzo and kidney beans) are a great source of fibre and protein and can be used to create delicious bean stews, bean salads, soups and veggie burgers.
  • Lentils can be canned, ready to use or dried – both are brilliant for bulking up soups and stews or adding texture to salads.
  • Tinned tomatoes are useful for soups and stews, and add extra flavour when they are fire-roasted or seasoned. Just make sure to check the ingredient list for added sugars.
  • Spices and seasonings such as cumin, cinnamon, coriander, curry powder, wasabi powder, and dried herbs such as oregano, thyme, and bay leaves are just a handful of
