What are the 10 ingredients you can't live without in your kitchen and what is the main dish you prepare with some of them? As I mentioned in other post, mine are balsamic vinegar, Parmesan cheese, cinnamon, paprika, garlic, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, onion bouillon, lemons, chicken.

Onions, garlic, celery, ginger root, oyster sauce, rice noodles, sesame oil, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. I make a lot of stir-fry and Asian noodle type dishes.

Can we go beyond 10? I could have listed at least 10 more ingredients that I consider essential!
