Expand Your Pantry!

No matter how long you've been cooking, there is always a way to build and  


We all have those ingredients that elude us at the stores. Not to mention the ingredients that we always say we will special order, but never seem to get around to. Either way, there is always something new to try!

This week we are looking for Heidi Swanson recipes that have new ingredients and/or ingredients that we haven't cooked with often and want to get to know a little better. Examples would include a new flour, such as amaranth, barley, or quinoa. Perhaps even a new natural sugar, such as date sugar or brown rice syrup. There are also several varieties of grains to experiment with and don't forget, an endless array of spices and seasonings to chose from that you may not have tried! Don't be afraid to try your hand at something new!

Please Expand your pantry by Sunday, December 11th and share your Heidi
dish below by linking up both your picture and post. 

Please remember to link a thumbnail image and please leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish.

New to IHCC? Need help linking up or just a refresher on how to join in the fun and become a part of our community? Please check out our Welcome page. If you have any questions please leave a comment below and we will get back with you.

Tempeh is the new ingredient I try.

I did things slightly differently by picking an ingredient I use fairly frequently, red lentils but using them in a new-to-me way--Heidi's Red Lentil Hummus. ;-)

My second time working with hominy and we absolutely love it! We love the chewiness.
