Basic Vegan Pantry

BASIC PANTRY.  We travel to many remote areas of this amazing country and always start out with a 4 week supply of basic food.

This allows all my basic Vegan camp recipes to be made for a 4 week period as well as having some other back-up type ingredients for alternative cooking.
• 4x400g cans chick peas         
• 2x400g cans bean mix
• 2x400g cans soy beans
• 8x400g cans chopped tomatoes
• 4x400g cans mixed vegetables
• 2x400g cans spinach
• 2x440g cans green beans
• 2x400g cans corn kernels
• 2x400g cans creamed corn
• 6x430g cans sliced cucumber
• 6x450g cans sliced beetroot
• 10x425g cans baked beans
• 16x435g refried beans (with chilli)
• 500g jar stuffed green olives
• 2x265g jars capers
• 4 packets of dried wholemeal or soy pasta
• 2kg jasmine or basmati rice (I would prefer to stock brown rice, but the cooking time is too long for our limited and precious gas supply)
• 500g dried brown lentils
• 1kg dried red lentils
• 8 packets 2 minute noodles (or other dried noodles)
• 12x297g  packets Morinaga firm tofu (asian isle)

• 500ml sweet chilli sauce
• 385g Tahini (preferably non hulled)
• 600ml soy sauce
• 1L white vinegar
• Crushed walnuts
• Dried spices: powdered vegetable stock, curry powder, dried garlic, dried onion, parsley, chives, mixed herbs, smokey paprika, mustard seeds, coriander, turmeric, ginger, garam masala, cumin seeds, nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, ground cardamom, black pepper
• 1 packet of 4x50g tomato paste sachets
• 4x1kg packets FG Roberts “Gluten Free Soy Compound (1 packet makes enough “milk” for about 4-5 weeks)
• 2x packets ginger nuts (the only commercial, readily available vegan sweet biscuit)
• 4x packets ‘lunch’ crackers
• 4x100g rice crackers (very few flavours are vegan)
• 1kg dried fruit (such as dates, prunes, apricots)
• 4x250g blocks Whittaker’s 72% Cocoa Dark Ghana chocolate (the only readily available vegan chocolate)
• A good supply of peanuts or other nibblies!!
• Black tea (quantities needed for 4 weeks will obviously depend on how much you drink)

• 4x425g crunchy peanut butter
• 2x850g Golden syrup (we use this as a toast spread, it is space efficient, vegan and can be taken across state borders unlike honey)
