meaning of ‘pantry meal’

This is from the transcript of a podcast.

LEE: Gim is also a key ingredient in one of Eric’s favorite dishes,
gyeran bap, which literally means egg rice. It’s a simple pantry meal
and anyone can whip it up in 10 to 15 minutes.

I wonder what ‘pantry meal’ is.


It’s not a fixed phrase, to my knowledge, but it’s easy to guess. A pantry meal requires only ingredients that you are likely to have in your pantry at home.

The opposite is a recipe that invariably requires you to go to the store and buy some unusual ingredient or other.
