3 food essentials for your vegan pantry
If you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, here are the key items to stock up on for adding protein, texture, and flavour to your dishes.
- Legumes. Keep dried or canned legumes varieties including kidney beans, cannellini beans and black beans in your pantry. Lentils cook quickly and are great additions to soups, salads and hearty dishes like in pasta sauces. Dried legumes require soaking before cooking with them.
- Grains. Using a variety of grains adds nutrients, texture, and flavour. Keep your pantry stocked with grains like; brown rice, quinoa, millet, freekeh, and couscous. They are very versatile and work well in almost any dish.
- Nuts. Almonds, walnuts, pistachios and pecan nuts are great choices. Whole or chopped nuts work well in salads to add texture and flavour whereas ground nuts like almond meal works well in sweet baking. You can keep nuts in the fridge or freezer to extend the self-life and freshness.
