I loooove brown jasmine rice! Second, would be brown basmati. I love aromatic rice.<br><br><br><br>
I have too many pantry items to be able to pick a few. But I always replace my shoyus, tamaris, and Bragg's. Nutritional yeast too. Dried beans, rice, various berries (for flours), all my favorite grains -- quinoa, amaranth, rice -- but those are in the freezer; canned and jarred items, tons of condiments; tons of spices, my favorites are garlic and onion powders, asafoetida, white/black pepper. And always my seaweeds!! -- my favorite, arame; hijiki; dulse; and my kombu -- can't live without them!<br><br>
Oh, too much stuff. I have tons of nuts and seeds...

Do you wonder what Loki keeps in the kitchen? Well, I thought you'd say no, so scroll down to the next post, after I say anyway:<br><br><br><br>
Quinoa<br><br>
TVP<br><br>
Spaghetti<br><br>
Baked beans (in a can)<br><br>
Heinz country vegetable soup (in a can)<br><br>
Pasta sauce<br><br>
Linda McCartney Sausage rolls (They go in the freezer, BTW)<br><br>
Ready made falafel (Obviously)<br><br>
Carrots (For falafel and to eat as a snack)<br><br>
Lettuce (For falafel)<br><br>
Pitta bread<br><br>
Hovis country grain bread<br><br>
Onions<br><br>
Mushrooms<br><br>
Garlic<br><br>
Herbs & spices<br><br>
Apples<br><br>
Oranges<br><br>
Apple Juice<br><br>
Orange Juice<br><br>
Olive oil<br><br>
Canola oil<br><br><br><br>
As I see it, it's important to have both olive and canola oil. Canola oil is brilliant for frying, and for general oil purposes. It goes great in stir fries and other things. However, olive oil has a great taste to it, and it's great when i make pasta, since it has a low smoke point, so it kinda dries up if I pit too much in, which doesn't happen with canola oil. On the flipside, if you use olive oil in a stir fry, it starts smoking. That's why it's essential to have both, IMO.

tamari is very tasty! i prefer it hands down over soy sauce. they both are made from soy though. not sure of the exact difference.<br><br><br><br>
just got me a bottle of braggs. i have been curious about it, but the really gimmicky label turned me off. its good to see it is low in sodium. the low sodium tamari i buy has like 800mg per teaspoon! i haven't tried it by itself yet, but i made "liquid gold" with it which was tasty. liquid gold is this awesome dressing recipe from the book "becoming vegan" btw. i am normally an incessant oil and vinegar type person. but this stuff is going to broaden my palete a span. the added benefit is that it is a great way to include flax oil in your diet.<br><br><br><br>
i'm also a big fan of tahini, and nutritional yeast. i just finished the rest of my tahini sauce here, in fact. a bit of lime or lemon juice, water, tahini, salt and garlic.<br><br><br><br>
of course there are the mustards, and vinegars, spices, and oils. i am stuck on grey poupon, apple cider vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. i just buy bulk spices now for the most part at the grocery store, but since penzeys opened a shop i've kinda been nosing around there too. tried asofetida for the first time last week! other wise known as devils dung, heh. anyone else notice the fetid in it? well in all honesty it was strong smelling and tasting, but certainly it wasn't going to make me gag involuntarily...shesh. my two favorite spices as of right now would have to be corriander and turmeric.<br><br><br><br>
i am really curious about seaweeds, haven't tried buying any yet. spinach in miso soup just isn't the same...hehe.<br><br><br><br>
strix: does the packaged stuff go very far? it allways looked like a small amount for a sizeable price. not sure what all you could use it for either?<br><br><br><br>
i understand now that it is futile to list EVERYTHING...heh.<br><br><br><br>
evita: yah, i'm sure you'll be very pleased with the sun dried tomatoes. just a hint, most are salted somewhat, which speeds the drying. i allways find that i need quite a lot less salt when using them in whatever, for obvious reasons. also, i find that guacamole is at its best after being refridgerated overnight. this is very true when using the sun dried tomatoes. they will eventually get very hard if left long enough, i don't really try and keep them from drying out. but instead just put some in a bowl with water and nuke em for 30 secs or let them sit for a bit when i need to use them. oh and if i haven't said enough already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">, scissors work well for cutting them into more manageable pieces.<br><br><br><br>
best!

I am a poor college student so I buy tons of canned veggies, and bulk rice for my pantry. Canned veggies come in handy if you in a hurry. just add a couple cans of veggis together on the stove, add some spices and you will have a meal + leftovers for a week. I also invest alot of my resources in spices. w/ spices you can make any cheap thing taste good. I suggest no less than 15 spices on hand at all times in every kitchen pantry.

</div>
<br><br><br>
Actually Tamari is soy sauce, the difference is that it's "real" soy sauce. The regular soy sauce you see is the Americanized crap, it's not made the way traditional soy sauce is. If you look at regular soy sauce, it has all these chemicals/ingrediants, whereas Tamari has only a few, plus it's fermented which is better for your stomach cause it aids in creating healthy bacteria, like yogurt.
