Supermarket items that can do double duty

Items to get from the supermarket to help with meal prep. This is a mix of fresh and prepared items. You don't have to be a hard-core cook to be able to use these.

    1. Mushrooms

    Sliced or whole, can be added to Soups, stir fries, meat loaf. They last about a week or so in the fridge.

    2. Onions

    Have one or two on hand you can cut them in half and store half in the fridge for a week or more

    3. Lemons or limes

    Add lemon juice to vegetables, Mix with olive oil for a dressing. Add slices to water etc.

    4. Feta cheese block

    Decent with eggs. Good baked and drizzled with olive oil. Lasts a long time

    5. Green split peas in a bag

    Good for pea soup of course. The don't need presoaking. Family Feasts for $75 a Week suggests cooking them in broth along with garlic, jalapeno and a little turmeric. Betty Crocker has a free online recipe

    6. Jarred salsa

    One of the best recipe cheat items. Add to a mashed avocado for quick guacamole. Use a spoon or two as a pizza base. The open jar can go in the fridge for about a week or two.

    7. Goya garlic olive oil

    Relatively cheap. A few handfuls of chopped chard is great heated up with a tablespoon or so of the oil

    8. Coconut oil

    This solidifies below a certain temperature. Fine for cooking greens, eggs, or roasting veggies. Keeps for a few months or more

    9. Red wine vinegar

    Use with olive oil on fish that's being baked or grilled. Makes an easy dressing.
