Of leftover soup - in our case roughly 1.5 ladles of tomato and lentil. Not much for eating you might think, but with the addition of a few more things, it can become a meal for 2 adults. It might well not be the size of meal you are used to eating, but we have gradually brought down our portion sizes in the last few months, so this is fine for us.
We also had 1/2 a packet of streaky bacon left in the fridge. It would be all too easy to throw it all in but most of it is ear-marked for bacon, leek and potato soup tomorrow. I allowed 4 rashers in total, chopped them and added 1/2 a diced onion to a frying pan and fried them in a very small amount of oil.
What a great way of using left over soupReplyDelete
We never through any soup away, usually do something like this with leftovers.Delete
A brilliant idea. It wouldnt harm any of us to cut back our portion sizes either.ReplyDelete
It has taken us nearly 1.5 years to cut back but we've just about got there.Delete
Yum! My mum used to make something very similar specificaly as a pasta dish, i'll send a link of this to her and my dad! My dad cooks these days as he discovered he loves it and lentil and bacon soup is a favourite of his.ReplyDelete
I'll shall be giving it a try too :-) xx
Absolutely any flavoured soup works. A little bit of grated cheese on the top just rounds it off nicely. I should imagine the price of the whole meal would be less than the price of a jar of sauce.Delete
I quite often mix some homemade soup with pasta and whatever is in the fridge - cooked chicken or ham etc. It makes a tasty and economical meal. Yours looks very nice.ReplyDelete
We often have soup left over, plus cheese, but rarely anything else. Always make for a nice tasty cheap meal though doesn't it?Delete
I always get hungry reading your blog!!ReplyDelete
Must be working then!Delete
I did something similar last week when I got what I thought was pasta sauce out of the freezer and it turned out to be tomato and chilli soup!ReplyDelete
I often have that happen. Even though everything is labelled, sometimes defrosting makes it unreadable.Delete
