One of my favourite all time staples, always available in my pantry would be Beehoon or Vermicelli noodles. It is a versatile staple to be stocking up on in the pantry, as it can be served in many different ways. One way I like it served apart from in Salads and Soups would be to have it stir-fried. Even when stir-fried, there are many different ways it can be done.

Here is one of the many ways  to quite easily prepare hawker-style Fried Beehoon, which can be quite substantial as a main meal or as a savoury tea-time snack, when served in smaller portions. Of course to add on to the spicy-ness, I normally add on fresh cut chillies which double up as a garnish on my Hawker Style Fried Bee Hoon. Yummylicious!
