Now more than ever, people are turning to their pantries and other common kitchen staples to help whip up satisfying meals and snacks – and even drinks! – for themselves and their families. Here are a few of our favorite ways to turn those on-hand ingredients into creative and wholesome meals.
Black Olive Soup
Homemade soup can be a satisfying and comforting meal. Grab staples like garlic, onion, chicken stock, Lindsay Black Ripe Medium Olives and Lindsay Manzanilla Pimiento Stuffed Olives, and this soup will be simmering before you know it. Enjoy with bread or croutons to make it even heartier.
Pasta with Olives, Sausage and Tomatoes
Combine sausage – or a preferred protein like chicken or plant-based meat – canned tomatoes and canned tomato paste with 1 cup of Lindsay Medium Black Ripe Olives for a delicious topping to your favorite pasta.
Almond Butter Apple Slice Snacks
Cereal, almond butter and an apple are all you need for this healthful snack. Slice an apple, spread your favorite Lindsay Almond Butter evenly across the top, and then sprinkle on cereal for crunch – add chocolate chips for even more sweetness.
Manzanilla Michelada Cocktail
If you’re in need of an adult beverage to help unwind after a long day, this Manzanilla Michelada is a delicious and creative option. Start with Bloody Mary mix and top off with your favorite light beer and Lindsay Manzanilla Olives Stuffed with Red Pepper.
