At a time when it might be difficult to get your usual ingredients at the supermarket, we’ve put together a roundup of our favourite store cupboard essential recipes!
I don’t know about you, but there are always random tins of things at the back of my cupboard that I’ve never got around to using!
There are also items in my cupboard and freezer that I tend to always have to hand as follows:
Favourite Store Cupboard Herbs & Spices
- Mixed Herbs
- Curry Powder
- Stock Cubes (vegetable, chicken & beef)
- Dried Basil
- Dried Oregano
Favourite Store Cupboard Tinned Goods
- Tinned Chopped Tomatoes
- Tinned Chickpeas
- Tinned Kidney Beans
Favourite Freezer Essentials
- Frozen Chopped Garlic
- Frozen Chopped Ginger
- Frozen Chopped Chilli
- Frozen Diced Onions
- Frozen Peas
- Frozen Sweetcorn
With supermarkets either out of stock of certain items or if you are unable to even get to the supermarket, now is a good time to go through your cupboards, fridge and freezer to see what meals you could make from what you already have or what you can use in addition to just doing a smaller shop.
All of these family recipes are made using just a handful of ingredients in addition to ingredients that you most likely already have in your cupboard, fridge or freezer.
