The coronavirus crisis is affecting different areas of our lives. Italy isolates 16 million people to try to contain the spread of the virus, and the numbers of those affected and deceased ten days ago were the same as they are in Spain today.
Given the risk that this same isolation here avoid saturation of hospitals,we have prepared a recipe guide with non-perishable ingredients and food so that you can cook during a possible coronavirus quarantine.
If we are going to have to stay at home with closed businesses and shops, that we can at least do it by eating well.
First, fill the pantry properly
And it is that if we are not going to be able to leave the house for a few weeks or it is the case that the shops have to close, we have to have a lot of wisdom when buying the supplies and for that we have left you a few tips explaining what are the best foods we can choose to quarantine while still eating well.
And so you can see that with a good pantry fund you can cook very delicious things without having to shop frequently, we propose a series of recipes with which you are going to suck your fingers
Potatoes, boats of cooked vegetables and sausages are some of the foods that last us time without spoiling, with them you can prepare spoon dishes like this fake fast fabada , comforting as it alone. If you prefer a version made with dried pulses, you can also take a look at this slow-cooker bean stew .
Along the same lines, these chickpea curries made with canned chickpeas are a true vice. If you accompany them with white rice, you have the mixture of legume + cereal, which contains proteins of high biological value so they would serve you for a complete meal. If you prefer dried chickpeas because you can no longer live without the CrockPot, you can also make them by following this Chana Masala chickpea recipe .
The pasta with egg and sausage is also a handy recipe because we can prepare a sauce with onion, piquillo peppers and roast the crushed tomatoes scrumptious. Another option that gives a lot of play is to change the chorizo for tuna , another classic of pasta as a single dish.

With bacon, ham or a little chorizo, these green beans with potatoes and egg are a unique dish of the most help, because in the absence of fresh beans we can do it with canned green beans. The only difference is that, in this case, what we will do is put the well-drained beans in the pot of potatoes when they are ready and we will leave them only a couple of minutes to warm up.
