Leftover soup is not soup that you ate in a different meal, but rather soup that is made from leftovers from another meal!
Sometimes (in our house, at least), if there is more than one days worth of leftovers in the fridge, they get passed by because we're bored with it!. I mean, eating something once is great, twice is o.k., but a third time? Boooor-ing!
Today's recipe is less of a recipe really, and more of an idea that I will trace for you in black, and you get to colour in yourself!
It may seem like making soup from left-overs is a no-brainer, but as a teenager I once had soup that someone had made from basically every left-over they had!!! This soup had eggs and breakfast sausage, cut-up hamburger, left-over chicken noodle soup, & those frozen peas & carrots vegetables that had already been (over) cooked! This is a for real thing someone made! This experience was from more than 15 years ago and I still remember to this day all that was in the horrific meal!
So, see? There is an art to this!
**Some Tips for Flavour/Leftover Combining**
This soup was made from my "Tomato, Artichoke, & Cheese Chicken".
I added 4 cups of chicken stock, a pinch more basil, chopped up the leftovers a bit, & warmed it all up! It made a really good soup!
This soup is made from leftover mashed potatoes, and also the little bit of meat that remained from our Italian meatloaf.
I added 8 cups of stock (I had lots of potatoes!) to a large pot, some garlic powder, and rosemary. For the meat, I just crumbled it into the pot, and let the potatoes warm in the stock until I could stir them to a nice consistency. This soup was also very yummy!
I hope you can use some leftovers in your fridge to whip up a batch of hot soup on this cold winter day!
