Without doubt, I am one of the most boring cooks, ever! So I am looking for a bit of inspiration - to try new products, introduce new flavours, new techniques etc to my family dinners...

So, tell me - what is your most loved pantry item and what do you do with it/how do you cook it/serve it etc smile.gif

Oh, when I read this title I thought that it was going to be a random question thread about what items in your pantry you use constantly. Because for me it would be Master Foods Pizza Topper; I sprinkle it on the grilled sandwiches I have for lunch every day. And canned diced tomatoes would be a close second, cause they can form a base for so many things. wink.gif

I'm a very boring (and not very good) cook too, so I'm up for some simple ideas as well. smile.gif

I'm not claiming to be an exciting or adventurous cook in answering this! I'm just your average pom - fairly welded to her oven.

I'm a recent convert to quinoa. It's delicious and so quick too (even I can't screw it up) as a side dish with minced onion and an Asian dressing or as a type of tabbouleh. I'm also loving Harissa (which my mum suggested in a rare moment of contact) and hommus. I use them as sandwich fillers, salad dressing or a condiment. Pesto or a basil and rocket dip is also a staple for similar reasons.

The kids love stir fries where the meat has had a quick marinade in mirin, soy sauce, sugar and grated ginger. I serve it with plain quinoa or rice.

I would also love some suggestions to mix it up a bit. Especially quick, no fuss, or prep in the morning (rather than witching hour) ideas.

Rolled oats! I use them for porridge of course, plus several biscuit recipes and apple crumble

1. Masterfoods Moroccan spice mix. Goes well on so many things! Great steak or roast rub, hubby sprinkles on eggs in toasted sandwiches, seasons chips etc.

2. My Costco size bag of almond slivers which boost up so many things. Can thrown them into muffins and other baked treats, into salads, great in some cous cous (or qinoa, love that!) or even a nice fresh pasta dish with burnt butter and sage sauce, mmmmmmm
