stock up the 50 cupboard ingredients and

only buy the fresh items each time you cook a recipe

Using the same cupboard ingredients across all of our recipes means we only have to buy a couple of fresh ingredients each time we make a recipe. This helps us with buying less on shopping trips, cooking last minute meals and stocking the house with accessible ingredients.

 

We've put a list of the cupboard ingredients we use below for you below, try stocking up and buying less every time you cook a recipe.
