Sure I'll share my pork soup recipe. You'll probably laugh at the way I cook but with soup there is no right or wrong. I had roasted a pork loin surrounded by veggies (cauliflower, carrots, onions and sweet potatoes) the first night. Then I put all the leftovers in a bowl including the liquid. The liquid is the most important part! Put in fridge and when cold skim off all fat. (there were no sweet potatoes leftover.) The next day put it back in a roasting pan, add brocoli and peas to make more. We ate off it again and I had just a handful of pork left, the liquid and some odds and ends of veggies assorted kinds. The next day I put it all in a stock pot, added a handful of lentils, barley, brown rice and a can of no salt diced tomatoes. Filled the pan with water and tasted it. Sometimes I add a can (6 oz) of tomato paste and sometimes I add tomato or beef bouillon depending on how it tastes. Simmer it about an hour and then enjoy. I find any leftovers are good with the base of tomatoes, lentils, and brown rice. Sometimes if I don't have meat, I'll add beans and cook it or a non meat soup. You can't make a mistake as just put in whatever you like the most. Full of protein and veggies and good for you stuff! Hope that helps you, ;)
