by Nancy Newcomer

I was recently asked what I have stocked in my pantry. Truth be told, I’ve paired things down quite a bit after downsizing to my current kitchen. I only have a couple of shelves and drawers to store things in, so I rotate items more often than I used to. That being said, I’ve put together a list of my 35 favorite Pantry “Must-haves” so that I’m well-stocked with the staples.

Pantry Must Haves:

olive oil

coconut oil

vinegar

Stock/broth

soy sauce or gluten free tamari

dijon mustard

coconut milk

canned tomatoes

pasta sauce (read the labels)

garlic

olives

rice

pasta or rice pasta

dry beans & lentils

dried onions
tuna/clams

nuts and nut butters

ketchup

cinnamon

cumin

oregano

turmeric

peppercorns

coarse sea salt

oats
All purpose flour

sugar

cocoa

baking soda

baking powder

corn starch

vanilla

honey

coffee

tea

Of course, if you want to go over 35 items, there are plenty of other things we could add to the list, especially when you get in the realm of herbs and spices. Be in touch -let me know if you have anything to add to the list–I’d love to hear from you.
