10 Must-Have Pantry Staples

It’s always wise to have your pantry stocked with staples, so you’ll be able to whip up a quick meal, or add the finishes touches to a meal without a visit to the supermarket. We suggest the top 10 pantry (and one freezer) staple to get you sorted!

Olive Oil

It’s a necessity to have an oil to cook with. However, why not stock your pantry with olive oil instead of other oils, as it is good for heart health and lowers cholesterol.

Peanut Butter

We suggest having at least one spread in your cupboard for a quick breakfast of toast. However, peanut butter is extremely versatile in adding flavour to dishes. For example, a simply peanut curry can be made with peanut butter and plain yoghurt.


Canned tomatoes

Canned tomatoes act as a tasty base to several dishes such as curries or bolognese!


Frozen Veg

OK, this isn’t kept in the pantry – but frozen veges are a lifesaver to add to a variety of dishes. Plus, flash frozen at their freshest – these veg make a nutritious and delicious addition to meals.




Rice is an inexpensive items that lasts and lasts in the pantry. Eat it with curry or make a rice salad – the choice is endless!



Broth, both canned or cubed is a great way to add flavour to a dish – whether it be a home made soup or in place of water in a dish. This concentrated cube is your best friend!

Beans are both a cost effective and tasty dose of your daily protein. Add them to curries in place of meat, to a salad or to a Mexican dish, these are a must-have!


Canned tuna

Canned tuna will keep fresh in the pantry and taste delicious on sandwiches, salads, you name it! There is also canned salmon as well as chicken if you are not a fan of tuna.



Garlic is a long lasting pantry staple that will add volumes of flavour to a dish whether it be Thai, Indian, or Italian!
