Some days, you just don't have the time to go to the supermarket, or the money to order delivery, no matter how empty the fridge is. So, what's your favourite bare-pantry recipe?
My go to lazy-night meals are pasta or stir fry. Since I always have a couple of kinds of vegetables in my fridge, dry staples (flour, pasta, rice) and canned goods (beans, tomato sauce/paste) in my pantry, and basic spices (salt, pepper, soy sauce) throwing together either option is easy. Plus, if I end up needing a bare-pantry dish two nights in a row, I don't end up eating the same thing again.
Even if you only have dry leftovers around, you can still transform them into a tasty grain bowl. Share your meal suggestions below — make sure the ingredients are flexible so that others can use whatever they have on hand.
