Pantry Staples

Everybody has their favourite pantry items.  The ones you reach for again and again to make a meal in an instant.  My cupboards are full of spices--usually big jars of whole spices I buy in Asian shops.  I have loads of soy sauce, fish sauce, mirin, vinegars, and the like.  Of course your spices and sauces will depend a lot on what kind of cuisines you like, but as for the rest, I cannot live without:

  1. Basmati Rice
  2. Red lentils
  3. Popcorn
  4. Flour (several kinds)
  5. Pesto
  6. Tin Tomatoes
  7. Stock or Knorr Stock "pot"
  8. Soup Mix (a plain mix of lentils and grains)
  9. Beans
  10. Noodles--rice or soba
