Canned Food Recipes To Get You Through

Whether you’re at the end of your food budget, or stuck at home and living out of your pantry, here are some canned food recipes that are worth making.

Canned Food Recipes


We live in King County Washington, the US epicenter of Covid-19. Because of our own illness, our family has been self quarantined for two weeks now. Just as the BIG kids are healthy enough to return to school, our baby Arden has gotten sick enough he has been swabbed for COVID-19.

We are quarantined, awaiting the results. But even if he is negative, school is being closed for the next 6 weeks.


Over the last two weeks we quickly worked through the fresh food in our refrigerator, and have moved on to the freezer and pantry.

Our governor also issued a mandate yesterday closing churches and other gatherings. Right this minute I’m prepping for a grocery delivery before that possibly shuts down as well. 

I’m going through recipes that can be made with canned food, and other pantry and freezer ingredients. This way I can order recipe ingredients that will last for weeks or even months.

Since this list of canned food recipes is so helpful to me, I thought I would share it with you as well.

Stay safe and healthy friends!

Creative Canned Food Recipes Idea

If you're using a lot of beans in your canned food recipes, you're likely to have a lot of aquafaba going down the drain. This is the liquid the beans are canned in. Instead of tossing it, save that legume liquer as an egg replacement for baking!
