No tofu - not a spice, but and no curry.

My kitchen is missing way too many things. Being a cooking newbie is tough

Lynd

the best part about being a newb or trying new stuff is that you end up getting things and having a pantry filled.

I recently tried making my own sushi so i ended up getting a bamboo mat and some wasabi powder. 2 things I never would have had or used if i didnt try something new.

My first thoughts were all equipment: food processor (I prefer chopping over cleaning), paring knife (I use my chef knife exclusively) and steamer (actually, I need one of these). As far as ingredients go, I've got an easy out as I don't eat meat or eggs, so no eggs, no stocks, etc.
