When mealtime gets to be a chore, we like to turn to common condiments, spices, frozen vegetables and other pantry goods that are always on hand. And if your home is properly stocked, you can get away with adding one or two fresh ingredients from the store to create a wide range of simple, delicious pantry meals.
When we say pantry goods, we mean anything that stores well, including shelf stable ingredients from the pantry cabinet, common freezer fare, and bottled items from your fridge.
Recipes that rely on pantry and freezer meals let you make food with ingredients you already have, save a little money, and prevent a lot of waste. An efficient way to serve up a family-friendly dinner, or late night meal for one. All in all, a win-win proposition.
Here are just a few ways ranch can help take your pantry meals from boring to brilliant.
