The day before we go food shopping, we use up whatever is in the fridge, therefore, it can't be planned in advance. You just have to be brave and go with it!
Sometimes, it will be lunch or more often then not, the evening meal. As we already had a use it up meal prepared, we decided to do soup for lunch. Here is what was used:
2 tablespoons bacon lardons (or 3 rashers diced)
1 chopped medium onion
1 deseeded and diced chilli
2 thinly sliced leeks
2 pints chicken stock made with 2 chicken stock cubes
3oz risotto rice
Lots of ground black pepper
A dessertspoon of dried tarragon
2 tablespoons instant potato
The bacon and onion were fried until soft. The chilli, pepper and leeks were then added along with the stock. Brought to a simmer and cooked for 20 minutes before the rice was added. Another 20 minutes stirring occasionally then add the ground pepper, instant potato and tarragon.
Once heated through, the soup was whizzed. We got enough for 2 lunches each:
Have a great weekend everyone!
