What are Pantry Staple Recipes?

Pantry staple recipes, to me, use more than cans of food in the pantry. They use a variety of non-perishable ingredients, like canned foods, grains, etc., along with refrigerator and frozen ingredients I like to keep on hand. Vegetables, for instance, are great both canned and frozen, which allows a greater variety of recipes.
