I love hearing how others stock their pantries and fridges, and I love pictures of people's fridges and cupboards. So... what is in yours?

Miso, some sort of leafy vegetable (right now I have baby bok choy, swiss chard, purple kale), too many kinds of mustard, beer, and I always have a few slabs of tempeh and tofu. One could surmise that I love stir fry and ramen with veggies if they looked into my fridge.

Always in our pantry: nooch (we literally have a 10 pound bucket of nooch right now), Leahey's cheese sauce, Vegg yolk, FYH eggs, fair trade & slavery-free chocolate chips, gluten, at least one can of black olives, at least one can of both Cedarlake chops and Cedarlake deli franks, Road's End gravy packets, too many kinds of tea (in addition to the usual baking supplies, oatmeal, etc.), an infinite variety of noodles.

Always in our fridge: Wildwood creamer, homemade butter, around 15 kinds of hot sauce (we... have a problem), miso, kale, carrots, fruit, multiple almost-finished jars of homemade jam, refrigerator pickles, dinner leftovers, sprouted wheat bread, an assortment of vegan cheeses, whatever produce is in season at the farmer's market (this is, like, 80% of our fridge space), and some sort of plant milk.

I have the same problem with flour. I have a bag of flour from about every grain I can think of, and a couple of them are just sitting there forlornly after having been used once. (I should make some injera to use up that teff...)

Pantry: different flours (at least whole wheat, barley and roasted oat flour/skrädmjöl, baking powder & co, vanilla powder, lots of canned chickpeas, rolled oats, vegan guaranteed milkfree chocolate (plamil's mostly), canned beans and lentils, soybeans, at least olive oil, canned crushed tomatoes, red and brown lentils, cocoa powder. That's the absolute minimum.

On the counter: lots and lots of garlic and shallots, normal canola oil, bananas and sometimes tomatoes.

Fridge: homemade soy milk, sourdough, tofu, miso (dark and light), apple cider vinegar, coldpressed canola oil, sauerkraut, soyjoghurt, carrots, onions, hummus, peanut butter, lemon juice, ketchup, vegan margarine. That's the bare essentials.

Freezer: lots and lots of fruits, heaps of frozen very ripe bananas, broccoli, green beans, corn, kale, tzay, oumph, rice, lunch boxes. That's the core. I find frozen stuff more practical and economical especially if bought fresh when cheap and frozen - what with commuting and living outside the town and not having a car.

Pantry:
Baking section: flour, rolled oats, white sugar and brown sugar, gluten, baking soda, baking powder, vanillated sugar, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, agar, cornstarch, tapioca starch (I make a lot of milk based desserts with the last 3)
Spice section: a whole lot of stuff but at the very very least cumin, thyme, oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, white + black peppercorns, nooch, bouillon powder
Canned tomatoes, chickpeas, kidney beans, tomato paste, and among the many seeds at least flax and sesame.

On the counter: 10 kinds of oil and 10 kinds of vinegar - I'd say the essentials are olive oil, canola, toasted sesame oil, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, mirin.

In the fridge: white miso, soy sauce, soy milk, soy yogurt, hummus, tahini, dijon mustard, maple syrup, jalapenos, liquid smoke, wasabi, 15 kinds of hot sauce

I don't consider the stuff in the freezer "staples" but I always keep in there: shelled edamame, dumplings, cubed tempeh, and aquafaba frozen in ice cube trays.

I like reading this thread because I realize how weirdly we store stuff in my house. Like, I didn't list oils & vinegars in the pantry section because they have their own cabinet above the stove. And I didn't list "8 heads of garlic" anywhere because they have their own shelf above the stove. And our spices take up all three shelves of a two-doored cabinet.

our freezer always has: random accidentally vegan Asian market finds, yuba, yeast, whiskey rocks, at least one kind of ice cream, the ice cream maker attachment for the Kitchen Aid mixer, Snackrilege bulk seitan, frozen fruit for smoothies, and more homemade butter. Right now there's also a ham tube, two kinds of lunch meat from Homegrown Smoker, popsicles, and a bag of chestnuts (and other less interesting things).

Veg and herbs vary but usually: mushrooms, baby spinach, baby kale, carrots, celery, leeks, broccoli or broccolini, asparagus if it's in season. Capsicum. I often have fresh coriander (cilantro) and/or curry leaves because I don't grow them for some reason (I should fix that), and lemon grass.

Bags of home batched frozen baby spinach and cubed pumpkin (because my spouse buys in bulk), mirepoix (diced celery, carrot, onion), and lemon juice cubes. Sometimes fresh herb paste cubes too.

Nuts: almonds (always and in bulk), cashews, pecans and walnuts at a minimum. Also macadamias and sometimes peanuts too. I usually have crushed peanuts and slivered almonds pre-prepped and on hand. Desiccated coconut.
Baking stuff: pastry/bread flour, normal unbleached white flour, baking soda, baking powder, tartaric acid and citric acid, icing sugar, various other sugars: coconut, muscovado and/or brown, and demerara and/or raw.

Noodles both soba and instant, sometimes udon or other as well.
Stock powder: "chicken" "beef" and vegetable, usually mushroom and/or ginger and/or 'herb' too, plus a big pack of vegeta (Croatian etc staple, not good for you but so yum).
Vegan gravy mix (usually both the gluten free Ogran brand or Massel brand, depending on when and where we shop)
Giant jar of nooch
Crackers and/or potato/casava chips.
Herbs and spices: too many to list, but never enough for my soul - I use a lot of spices!
Spreads: Jam (although this moves to the fridge once open), marmite, peanut butter, some kind of nut butter or cocoa spread (I've still not found the right one since my old faux-nuttella brand stopped production).
Onions, garlic, sweet potato, and potatoes.
Too many kinds of chocolate and raw snack bars.

Bulk pantry:
Tinned: tomatoes (crushed and whole), corn, baked beans (no salt), borlotti beans, chick peas, red kidney beans, refried beans, coconut cream. Pears, and pineapple. Various berries. Passionfruit pulp.

Various pastas, at a minimum lasagne sheets, macaroni, penne (ribbed ziti), and bows/farfelle, and at least one of spaghetti or linguine and/or fettuccine. Mix of wholemeal, normal wheat and various bean or veggie pastas. I also keep at least one packet of gluten free pasta (normally farfelle or spirals) on hand for variety and/or gluten free visitors.
Soy milk.
Technically the flours, nuts, dried fruits and a lot of the grains live in this section too but I keep smaller portions for use in the main pantry so counted them there.

Bench: multi-grain bread, 3 x flavoured salts (black, citrus/citron, and smoked or native herb), tricolour pepper in a grinder. Small jar of nooch for sprinkling.

I think if I went through and listed everything it would take me an hour! I did count my dried herbs and spices a couple months ago when cleaning up. OVER 70. I HAVE A SPICE PROBLEM.

Recently my BF got us a white board, so that we could write down our staples when they ran out. Its worked pretty well, except I forget to write stuff down!

here are my main staples, that get used the most. There is a bunch of crepe in the back that I seldom use (looking at you tamale/corn husks!)

Spices: CUMIN!! Coriander, Mexican oregano, thyme, paprika, turmeric, garam masala, cumin seeds, chili powder, powdered garlic and onion

Pantry: too many hot sauces to list, tahini, red wine vinegar, rice vinegar, apple cider vinegar, flax, rolled oats, chia seeds, molasses, tamarind concentrate, pomegranate molasses, canola & olive oil, cooking spray (so much cooking spray!), flour, brown sugar, baking powder and soda (and I am not even much of a baker). Tomato paste, P2B, Cocoa powder, Trader Joes Marinara, a plethora of pastas and noodles. Oh and that 5 calorie agave.

Grains and Beans: Quinoa, millet, like 4 kinds of rice, black, navy, garbanzo and pinto beans. Polenta/cornmeal

Fridge: canned adobo chills, many misos, veganaise, earth balance, soy or almond milk, wine for cooking, pickles, ketchup, mustard, a lot of jarred sauces (schezuan, hoison, peanut etc) Daiya shreds, cold brew coffee, too much beer

Freezer: TJ's meatless meatballs, at least 1 frozen dinner or burrito in case of emergencies, lots of frozen rice and beans, almost always a curry or bean dish that is frozen, thin mint girl scout cookies, frozen peas and corn, LOTS of cashews, walnuts, peanuts. (+ lots of non-vegan cheap frozen dinners for my BF)

Produce I buy pretty much every week: bananas, mushrooms, zucchini, bell peppers, cucumbers, varying lettuce, carrots, and a TON of ginger, garlic and onions. I meal plan, but this stuff gets used all the time.

And there is always tofu or tempeh in there somewhere! and at least 4 different kinds of protein powder and some random bars
