Our first Pantry Staple Wednesday task for the Love Your Kitchen Challenge will set you up for success during the rest of the challenge and beyond! Here's what you need to do: Toss anything questionable; donate anything you're not planning to use before it expires; remove products that have been sitting unopened for far too long. These products are taking up space in your pantry that could be otherwise used for the important and useful ingredients, tupperware, wrapping materials and more.

Now, make a recipe using one or more of your staples that are left behind! Here are some tasty ideas we're dying to make during the challenge:


Use canned chickpeas and canned tuna in our Chickpea Tabbouleh Salad with Tuna.


Quick Bean & Porcini Ragu will make the most of your veggie stock, canned cannellini beans or spaghetti. Triple whammy!


Chicken broth, a can of crushed tomatoes and Israeli couscous are transformed intoSmoky Tomato and Couscous Soup.
