I thought that this food chart by Cressida Bell was awesome. It was a submission into a food pyramid revision contest on Good.is and I found it really interesting that you could make so many different kinds of food from so very few ingredients. So, of course, I had to share it with all of you!
Okay, what you’re looking at is a food chart. On the left side of the image you’ll find a shopping list of the basics you’ll need to create these delicious dishes, and on the right side you’ll find a shopping list of extras that you can use to make these dishes more delightful to your palate.
At the bottom of the image you will find instructions on how to use the chart, how many people the recipes will feed, how long they take to cook and more.
In the center of the chart you have Onions, Tomatoes, and Beans with arrows radiating out of them to different recipes for dishes that start with that ingredient.
Onions – will start the following dishes: Vegetable Soup, Risotto, Shepherd’s Pie, Beef Stew, and Coconut Chicken.
Tomatoes – will start the following dishes: Tuna Provecale, Bolognese Sauce, Cauliflower Curry, Couscous, Mattar Paneer, and Piperade.
Beans – will start the following dishes: Tarka Dall, Sausage & Lentil Pie, Chilli Con Carne, Minestrone, and Pork & Beans.
That’s a lot of variety starting from such basic ingredients. The other thing I love about this chart is it really encourages you to get in the kitchen and experiment with the ways that you can change up these classic world recipes and make them your own.
