Pantry 101: canned goods every vegetarian should have in their pantry (part 3)

To continue the discussion on items every vegetarian should have in their pantry, today I want to outline which canned goods vegetarians should have in stock.

Pulling from The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegetarianism, here's the recommended list of canned goods:

(Since I live in a tiny apartment with only two cupboards, I'm really conservative with that I have on-hand at all times, so I have bolded my essentials)

  1. Vegetarian refried beans
  2. Water chestnuts
  3. Diced chilies and jalepeños
  4. Veggie soup - as I noted in my previous post, I like Amy's soups
  5. Veggie broth - I know it's easy to make your own, but I have yet to, so I always watch the price of vegetable broth in a few stores and then load up when it dips below $3/box
  6. Tomato sauces, paste or whole tomatoes - this is the first year I've decided to eat fresh tomatoes only when they're in-season, which means a whole lotta canned lovin' for the other 8-9 months of the year -- my favorite brand of canned tomatoes are San Marzano
  7. Veggie chili
  8. Artichoke hearts
  9. Bamboo shoots

In this series, part four will detail what TCIGtV recommends every vegetarian's freezer should have.

Part one: bulk foods every vegetarian should have in their pantry

Part two: dried and prepackaged goods every vegetarian should have in their pantry
