Just preparing dinner earlier and got the ingredients out, and it occurred to me that in at least 80% of our meals I'm reaching for garlic, onions and peppers. Sp now I'm wondering (nosey), is that the same for most people or do you have a different holy trinity from which you begin a large proportion of your cooking?

Onions, red lentils and garlic or cumin, at the moment.

Pretty similar...onions, red peppers and chopped tomatoes.

I use loads of chick peas if I’m allowed a fourth ingredient. Or cheese.

Onions, chopped toms and at the mo I’m going through a cauliflower phase! Also get through lots of balsamic vinegar

I'd put tomatoes (usually tinned) as my 4th ingredient then would come herbs I guess - usually dried mixed herbs.

Going to break away from my trinity in defiance today though, we're having a snow day and DC has requested his favourite cheesey pasta with bacon leek and peas.
