What are store cupboard ingredients?

By ‘store cupboard recipes’ I mean that they use ingredients that are commonly found at home. So in your cupboards this could be things like tinned tomatoes, chickpeas, beans, stock cubes/pots, rice, pasta etc. In your pantry – things like flour, yeast, sugar, onions and garlic. In your fridge – things like butter, eggs, cheese and milk. And in your freezer – things like frozen vegetables. Of course, every household varies, but you get the idea.
