7 Healthy Meals Made With Non-Perishables

Posted on Apr 03, 2020 By Ronelle Richards Ronelle Richards

Iso has given us plenty of time to stare deep into our pantries. So what are some healthy meals you can make with non-perishable items like tins, packets without resorting to spam?

With a little creativity itโ€™s simple enough to make some healthy meals all without relying on fresh produce or dairy. Hereโ€™s 7 meal ideas that make the most of your pantry staples.

1. ๐ŸŸ Tuna spinach fettuccine

A large tin of tuna in olive oil, added to just boiled spinach fettuccine (or other wholemeal pasta), seasoned with oregano and garlic makes for a quick and easy dinner. Some butter if you have it added in equal parts to the olive oil is a good addition for upping your fats.

2. ๐ŸŒถ Vegan chilli

Tins of beans and tomatoes lurking at the back of the pantry? A tin of corn? Some cayenne pepper and youโ€™ve got a vegan chilli in the making.

3. ๐Ÿ… Puttanesca

A tin of cherry tomatoes, a jar of capers or anchovies and youโ€™ve got the perfect base for a puttanesca pasta. Use a spelt pasta or if you have zoodles handy even better.

4.๐Ÿฅซ Canned pea risotto

Using a few pantry staples like onion, garlic, canned peas, arborio rice with tinned stock and youโ€™ve got a tasty meal.

5. ๐Ÿ› Chickpea curry

A tin of chickpeas is one of the most versatile pantry options. Using a tin of low fat coconut cream, a tin of chopped tomatoes and spices like cumin and paprika makes this dish a winner. Serve with brown rice to make additional portions.

6. ๐Ÿฒ Chicken and corn soup

Weโ€™ve all got a packet of chicken noodle soup lurking in the cupboard, if youโ€™ve got an additional tin of corn, some vegetable stock and a couple of leeks youโ€™ve got an easy soup.

7. ๐ŸŒฐ Bliss balls

If youโ€™ve got nuts, coconut oil, cacao powder, protein powder and maple syrup you can easily whip up a batch of bliss balls for snacking on as that 3.30itis starts to hit.
