20 Ingredients

Lovely eggs

Inspired by Alicia Silverstone’s post (and in general, I mean Clueless is probably one of the best films ever made, right?) I decided to think about which 20 ingredients we couldn’t live without.

Having said that, of course we could live without them. Without becoming too serious for the time being, the list is really about what we wouldn’t want to live without.

So, in no particular order:

* garlic
* butter
* cacao powder
* cumin
* green tea
* honey
* olive oil
* balsamic vinegar
* eggs
* dates
* vanilla extract
* porridge oats
* milk
* coffee
* goats cheese
* cinnamon/4 spice
* brown sugar
* chickpeas
* lemons
* rice

Writing this list led Shake and I to consider our diet. We are basically vegetarians as we prefer to eat local, organic meat wherever possible but just can’t justify the cost at the moment.

Vegan? I’m not sure we could commit right now, we enjoy our dairy products far too much!

How about you? Which food items wouldn’t you want to live without?

    Most of what is on your list but also potatoes; love my roasties; but most of all onions and to think they used to raffle them during the war because pre war the majority were imported from France.

      Good point about onions! They are the basis of so many of our meals. The smell of onions sautéing in butter and olive oil reminds me so much of my childhood. Shake wanted to add potatoes too, but I think I could live without them.

    Clueless changed my life! This is a fun one to think about. The first things that come to my mind are coffee, chocolate, olive oil, and avocados.
