End Of Week Soup


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

AT the end of every week I go through the crisper for unused veggies and through the freezer for ends of bags of veggies. I toss everything in a big pot with a boullion cube or two and cook it to make soup. Add leftover chuncked meat or chicken if you have it. You can just chop it all, or use the immersion blender on it for a different style of soup. If I'm using the immersion blender, I also add any bits of leftover cheese. You could cook ends of boxes of pasta or broken spaghetti, and add

The soup is never the same twice, but I do it every week and we have it three times a week. A real time and money saver.

    This is one of my favorites! And do keepsomething hidden that will make the soup more special on those occasions where it is not as well received. like Akash66 I usecheese, but some instant pototoe puree or real mashed potatoes make the soup fancier already. Do not be scared to stir creamy stuff into leftover soup like hummus or flavoured cream cheese or salsa or other stuff. Asian noodles work great in making it more special, more so if you have cabbage and veggies as your only left over.
