Many of you who follow me know about my Singaporean background. Much of what I cook today for my family is deeply rooted in asian cooking (whether it’s Chinese, Japanese, Thai or Indian). I’ve discovered though, when in a pinch and I need to get dinner on the table quick, it’s my asian pantry staples that come to the rescue. What’s even better is that these pantry staples are shelf-stable and can keep in your pantry for months if not longer. The refrigerated items too can keep for pretty long periods of time. Download my free “Essential pantry staples for easy asian cooking” below. You won’t regret it! And here’s a quick recipe for the ramen noodles pictured here. It came together in literally less than an hour!
