Ask Giada: Pantry Recipe Central

Giada shared her tips and simple recipes for the most common pantry ingredients- pasta, beans, rice, she's got you covered!

I started this platform three years ago to bring people together over food, and while we may not be able to share a physical table right now, we can most certainly still share a virtual one- in a space of community and unity- and we can still make some good food together, too!

I asked people on my Instagram what kind of content they wanted most during this time, and the response was overwhelmingly unanimous- "practical pantry recipes". So, over the next few weeks, I will be using this space to share just that. I know many people are experiencing grocery stores that aren't fully stocked and some people can't leave their home or don't know where their next meal is coming from- whatever your situation may be, know we are in this together. I'll be doing my best to adapt my older recipes with ingredients that are more readily available - and I'll share tips for how how to prolong the shelf-life of certain foods and cook in ways that really stretch your ingredients, along with ways we can help our neighbors and community members who need it most.

I hope this space will provide you a little inspiration in the kitchen in the coming weeks- and that you'll have a little (or hopefully, a lot!) of fun experimenting with food, too! Write to me on Instagram and let me know what you want to see more of - and if you make something good- share it with the hashtag #GiadaLookWhatIMade and I'll share the ideas with others on my page! We're in this together. Stay in, and stay healthy!
