Pantry Raid Recipes

A well stocked pantry is the key to easy meal planning and budget cooking.  Everyone’s pantry looks different but if you stock your shelves, fridge and freezer with the things you like to eat then you can whip up a meal for your family in no time.

Check out my pantry staples to get an idea of where to start.  Sub in your favorite spices, grains, and regularly stock up on long lasting veggies and proteins and you’re ready to go!  Below are a bunch of recipes to get you started.  I may have to sub broccoli for kale or ground turkey instead of ground beef but you get the idea.  Because my pantry is stocked I can easily sub out an ingredient I may not have for one that I do!

Happy cooking!
