February is Canned Food Month at the Capital Area Food Bank. The Blog Challenge is to create healthy recipes using primarily canned foods as your ingredients.  Here are the most requested items at our local food bank:

  • canned meats like tuna, stew and chili
  • canned vegetables
  • pasta and pasta sauce
  • beans
  • healthy cereals
  • peanut butter

Fresh produce is also collected from the area growers and back yard gardens, so think about what readily grows in the Austin area as possible supportive ingredients, especially herbs and peppers.
