Are you thinking about what to make for dinner tonight? CAP volunteers have submitted the recipes below. These recipes are easy to make and will usually serve a family of four, or plenty of leftovers if cooking for less people! The CAP Food Pantry’s goal is to offer healthful non-refrigerated supplemental foods as starter foods to prepare main dishes. Fresh, frozen or canned vegetables or seasonings etc. can always be added according to individual taste.
Having salads or fresh vegetables is a nice way to start out a meal. Including a fruit or a fruit salad after the meal or in the morning with breakfast is a nice idea too!
Many CAP Food Pantry suggested recipes include canned goods. To decrease sodium in recipes that call for plain canned beans or vegetables, they may be rinsed before using them. If you notice bubbles when rinsing them, this may be from the liquid in the beans or air trapped in the can.
Compassionate Actions Project recipes are also offered at our food pantry! This is another example of how we are helping the people we serve in the best ways we can.
