Thank you for your answer. Forgive me for lack of precision - I meant a main ingredient of a dish, so staple seems to be the best option.

I meant the "main" or "basic", "least exciting" ingredient. In your example I would see mashed potato as such. Thank you for your comment!

Thank you, I think that's what I meant. If a dinner consisted only of broccoli (for example), it would be lacking this type of "main" or "basic" ingredient (in my opinion of course ;) )
