I made some homemade vegetable soup a month or so ago, and along with what the recipe called for, I threw in the leftover veggies that were in the fridge. It was a yummy soup (a P90X recipe), and it inspired me - so for the last while I've been saving those last bits of veggies, chicken and rice that were not going to get eaten as leftovers, and threw them in the freezer. I even saved some 'veggie broth' - the nice green liquid leftover from cooking broccoli.
The other night I felt motivated and I simmered some chicken stock with celery, onion and carrot for an hour, then added all my thawed soup fixin's. It ended up a little thick, but I just added a bit of water, and it made a great lunch for Madeline and I three times this week!
I meant to take a photo for you, but ate it all up before I remembered...
So my questions for you are: Do you ever make leftover soup? Everything but the kitchen sink soup? Any tips on ratio of liquid to leftovers? How do you season it? (I used a bit of salt and some fresh ground pepper.) Thanks!
