In this video I will show you the top #1 recommended food items for any vegan emergency pantry stockpile list.
Plus, I’ll share with you a few tips & tricks I’ve learned during my years living as a vegan.
So, let’s get started…
Just a side note before we start…
In my day to day life, I stay clear of pre-packaged food as much as possible, always opting for fresh food instead, but as the subject of this video is an easy vegan emergency food list with food items that do NOT require refrigeration – all of the food on this list is pre-packaged for long term storage & is compiled from store bought, off the shelf pre-packaged items.
TOP 27 VEGAN PANTRY ITEMS:
Number 1 – Beans
Number 2 – Rice
Number 3 – Tomatoes: Cans & Jars of pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, whole tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, pizza sauce, salsa & enchilada sauce
Number 4 – Pasta
Number 5 – Lentils: Brown and green lentils hold their shape when cooked so combine great in a veggie burger. Yellow, orange and red lentils turn mushy when over cooked so they work great in soups and sauces.
Number 6 – Soup: cans and boxes. I buy plain soup and then add dehydrated veg, beans, pasta or rice to soup.
Number 7 – TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)
Number 8 – Grains: Farro, buckwheat, quinoa, barely, bulgur, whole grain couscous, etc.
Number 9 – Porridge or Oatmeal can be eaten for breakfast, ground into flour or used as a binder for bean veggie burgers.
Number 10 – Vital Wheat Gluten (Seitan): great for making vegan meat.
Number 11 – Canned, Boxed & Dehydrated Vegetable
Number 12 – Canned & Dried Fruit
Number 13 – Nuts & Seeds can be eaten whole or ground up into a flour meal. Ground up cashews are a very popular base ingredient for making home made, plant based, non-dairy vegan cheese sauces, pasta sauces, sour creme and cheese. Sesame seeds can be ground up with olive oil to make tahini for hummus.
Number 14 – Vegan Butter & Vegan Butter Flavoured Salt: For pre-made butter that does not have to be refrigerated try ethically refined Nutiva butter flavoured coconut oil. Vegan Butter Flavoured Salt is perfect on popcorn.
Number 15 – Vegan Egg Replacers: I’ve divided this number into three sections – baking, breakfast eggs & egg flavouring.
i) For baking I use ground flax seed which I combine with water and let sit for ten minutes to thicken and become gelatinous. The ratio is one tablespoon of ground flax seed to 3 tablespoons of warm water.
ii) For breakfast try: a) ‘Follow Your Heart’s Earth Island’ VeganEgg Powder or JUSTEgg (See links below). b) If you can find boxed tofu grab some. It used to be everywhere now it’s hard to find. They don’t require refrigeration and are great for making breakfast scrambles c) Chick pea flour for vegan omelettes. When it is combined with plant based milk and nutritional yeast it can create a perfect omelette.
iii) For egg flavouring use Black Salt also known as Kala Namak.

Number 16 – Vegan Cheese Flavouring: for a cheesy flavouring that doesn’t require the fridge stock up on nutritional yeast.
Number 17 – Pancake Mix & Syrup
Number 18 – Instant Tortilla Mix
Number 19 – Protein Powder
Number 20 – Salt & Sugar.
Number 21 – Spices & Soya Sauce: powdered spices (chilli, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, smoked paprika, ready made Italian seasoning, curry powder, chipotle, salt, pepper, cinnamon, mustard powder), red pepper flakes & dehydrated spices such as onion, ginger, garlic, chives, cilantro, basil, shallots plus Bragg’s Soya Sauce.
Number 22 – Oils & Vinegars: for cooking & home-made salad dressing – once you make home-made salad dressing a few times you will never buy pre-made salad dressing again.
Number 23 – Baking Ingredients: all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, active dry yeast. Tip: start to learn how to make simple breads, pitas on a skillet pan.
Number 24 – Falafel Mix
Number 25 – Condiments: peanut butter, ketchup, Tabasco, Sriracha, maple syrup, agave nectar, Jam, etc.
Number 26: Pickled Food (home-made and/or store bought)
Number 27: Drinks
