Quarantine Recipe Exchange- Simple Pantry Recipes

Are you looking for easy pantry recipes while you’re safe at home? This Quarantine Recipe Exchange features 17+ meals you can make with food in your pantry!

The world has seen some crazy stuff recently. Most of us are staying home where it’s safe, and barely even getting out to the grocery store. We’re trying to use up what we have, and sometimes it’s hard to come up with recipe ideas based on what’s in our pantry.

Whether you’re working from home, still working away from home, or even without a job right now, you still need to eat! And why not use up what you have to save money and save yourself from going out as often?

I’ve collaborated with friends, bloggers, and Youtubers alike to bring you these recipes that can be made using foods you may already have! This collection includes breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks alike to bring you every meal possible. Click the links to get to each recipe and be sure to let us know if you make any of them!

Vegan Vegetable Soup- By Cristine

  • 1 carton of vegetable broth (4 cups)
  • 1 can of tomato sauce (14.5 oz)
  • 1 large potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup of frozen peas
  • 1 can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and onion powder
  • 1 tsp of Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients into a medium pot, bring to a boil, simmer at medium until carrot and potatoes are soft, about 10-15 mins. I would say it makes 3-4 servings.
