Plant-Based Cooking 101: Pantry Items for the Beginner

Submitted by Kim Campbell, director of culinary education.

When our kids headed off to college, I had the task of building their kitchen pantries. It wasn’t easy because they were starting from ground zero. You can always add to this list as there are so many great products out there to enhance cooking. But here is what we started with to begin their cooking journeys.

Tofu and tempeh
There are many varieties of tofu, ranging from silken to extra firm. I prefer extra firm tofu. There are also a variety of tempeh brands and flavors, so I recommend you try a few. It’s important to always buy organic tofu and tempeh since many soy products are often GMO foods.

canned coconut milk (lite), cornstarch, flax meal, nutritional yeast flakes, seaweed (nori sheets), tomatoes, tomato paste, vegetable stocks (low sodium)
