Grains and Dried Legumes

Organic and package-free for a lighter footprint on the planet, these pantry staples are perfect for keeping on hand to reduce your day-to-day packaging waste. For quick weekday meals, look to faster cooking grains and legumes such as oats, basmati rice, red lentils and mung beans. For days when you have time for more prep, cook up your chickpeas, black beans and pinto beans to be used throughout the week.

Tip to avoid plastic lined cans: freeze your beans and take out to defrost the night before using.
