essential vegan pantry

These are all items I have been able to find at large chain supermakets. The * items are specialty items that you may have trouble finding. If you live in a big city, find your local Middle Eastern and Asian supermarkets. You can buy spices, dried and canned legumes, preserved vegetables and fruits really SUPER cheap and in bulk. My favourite place is in my hometown Brunswick, Bas Foods.

Get a few of your neighbours together, buy in bulk and recycle your old jars into air tight containers for all your new goodies (invest in air tight containers, moths get into everything. Also some places let you bring in your own containers, a great way to cut down landfill). Your local markets are awesome as well.
