7 Pantry Essentials to Always keep in your Kitchen
Hot sauce. If you like your dish to have a little kick, a dash or two of your favorite hot sauce will do the trick. Hot sauce is the perfect upgrade to any meal, from pasta to casseroles, tacos and more!
Vegetable or chicken broth. Transform your leftovers into a delicious and super easy soup! Uneaten chicken can be cubed or shredded, mixed with onions, garlic and a grain and added to a pot of broth. Pack up this warm and delicious reconstructed meal to bring to work the next day.
Citrus Juice. Acids, like citrus juice, will bring our bright flavors in many dishes. Squeeze a lemon over top of grilled chicken dishes and fish for a bright & bold flavor profile.
Alliums. The alliums family consist of garlic, shallots and onions, among other plants and vegetables. Whether sautéed or fresh, these simple ingredients add so much flavor to almost any dish.
Canned Beans. A simple, easy pantry staple, the addition of chickpeas, cannellini beans, kidney beans or black beans is a delicious and easy way to increase the protein of most dishes.
Oils. Whether fatty (olive oil) or heart-healthy (coconut, canola), oils are perfect if you need to reheat & sauté your weeknight meal.
Spices & Seasonings. A good selection of spices and seasonings will take the flavors of any dish to the next level. Our go-tos include: salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cumin and Italian seasoning.
