Back in the day, there are several ways of learning how to cook at home, and before cooking you need to plan a trip to the grocery store always, but that trip can be reduced to once a week if you know exactly what you need to always have on ground in order to eat well all day. Here is the rundown list of the top five ingredients that you must always have in your kitchen.
You can buy the dried chickpeas, all you have to do is to soak overnight, but then it won’t be available for you in a hurry. When you are stuck for dinner, you can take two cans from your stash, drain and dry the beans, toss it with a pinch of salt, smoked paprika, pepper, and roast it on a baking sheet until the beans are super crispy. They are extremely tempting when you add into a salad with feta, avocados, and greens. You can cook them with curry, diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, and coconut milk and serve it with rice.
A rustic Italian loaf, a basic Pullman, a French baguette, or any kind of loaf is acceptable. Slice the bread into a sandwich size pieces, and stash it in an airtight bag, and freeze it. If you don’t put it in such a bag, there is every possibility that you won’t get the best out of it when the need arises. When the bread is frozen, you are rest assured that it will not be stale, and all you need to do to revive it is to toast it. You can combine it with egg or good butter, and your meal is served.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
A bag of chocolate chips on the counter is an essential ingredient you need as a mother, it will get the attention of your kids whenever it is lines of their vision, it will also get your kids to stand next to you in the kitchen, because you can easily make cookies out of it whenever there is a call for celebration.
Just like tortillas and pasta, a wonton wrapper is the best starchy vehicle that can help you to consume various leftovers and vegetables. You can fry things like chicken, tofu, and greens, with onion, ginger, and garlic, then wrap whatever leftover you have into wontons, and fried it for dinner. You can find wonton wrappers any Asian supermarket and they are cheap.
Apart from the daily diet benefit we derive from an egg, it is important that we always refill our store when it’s about to finish. Though some don’t like egg, but for those that love it, make sure you never run out of egg in your kitchen. Eggs contain several vitamins and minerals which remain an essential part of a healthy human diet, in many parts of the world, eggs are readily available in stores, and it remains an inexpensive source of food.
