The best 25 Pantry Recipes to make during times when shopping is limited and you must cook with ingredients you have left in your pantry storage.

25 Pantry Recipes

From basic ingredients, homemade bread, easy dinner recipes, and snacks, everybody will find some ideas to cook easy pantry meals with limited access to fresh ingredients.

And, let’s not forget to add some sweet food in times when we need it the most.

These pantry recipes should give you some ideas on what to cook. Please be aware that most recipes are adjustable, so if you don’t have all the ingredients at home, you can often just skip it. If you are out of fresh garlic and onion, substitute with the powdered version. The same goes for herbs!

Make sure to read the notes I added for some recipes on how to substitute key ingredients with what you can find in your pantry storage.

Happy Cooking, Stay Home, and the most important, Stay Healthy!
