Episode 3: What's in Our Pantry

What’s in our Pantry? During this season of social distancing, we are taking measures to protect ourselves and others by staying home. But that doesn’t mean that we suddenly know what we’re going to eat for lunch!! We’re still finding creative ways to use up the food we do have to make delicious and healthy lunches all from home. And adapting some of them so the kids will eat them too!

I love a good throw-together in the kitchen! This easy, gluten free pantry soup is so quick to make that you will have lunch or dinner ready in minutes. Having a few key items in your pantry gives you freedom on the days and nights that you don’t have a lot of time to cook a big meal. While recipe uses the ingredients I already had in my pantry, it can easily be adapted based on what you have in yours! Have fun with different ingredients and find out what your go-to easy pantry soup is!

Delicious and spicy, just the way I like it! – Alane
