2015 STORE CUPBOARD
THE VEGETARIAN CUPBOARD
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all and we will start the New Year with stocking up our store cupboard.
There are a few basic items which are used often in vegetarian cookery - all cheap and cheerful and easy to obtain.
Red Kidney Beans
Black Eye Beans
Tinned chopped tomatoes
Don't use dried beans, they take far too long to cook.
Vegetable Stock Cubes- Many available but OXO vegetable cubes are the cheapest.
LENTILS (red and green)
Fresh herbs should be used if possible, if not dried.
Dried Chillies or Chilli Powder
Garam Masala (a blend of spices)
However, if any of these spices are difficult to obtain you can use Curry Powder.
Once you have these basic ingredients you add the vegetables to make the dishes we have created for you.
