The Ultimate Guide to My Favorite Pantry Meals! More than 125 Recipes Using Pantry Ingredients.
All of my favorite pantry meals, here in one place!
Over the last week you guys have been requesting one big post with all of my favorite pantry meals, so here it is! Categorized by pasta, beans, potatoes and more. There are so many favorites here – most are full dinners, but there’s an occasional breakfast thrown in along with a big snack section at the bottom.
In addition to storing canned or bagged items in my pantry, I always have certain frozen or fresh items on hand. For many of these recipes with fresh produce, you can use frozen or canned if you have it. You can also sub different grains for the ones mentioned or use flavors that more easily fit your own tastes. I’m all about you taking these recipes and making them your own. Be sure to share what you make with me on instagram!
Would love to hear what your go-to pantry meal is right now. And don’t forget, you can always find weekly menus over in what to eat this week.
