Leftover Soup

Patricia Kennedy Recipe

By Patricia Kennedy patkennedy78

This is my first time posting a recipe. I hope you like it.

One of my favorite dinners is steak, stewed tomatoes, and rice. One day I had some leftovers and it just wasn't enough to make another meal so I decided to put them all together and make a soup. It turned out better than I had expected. Now I make it the next day after having my favorite dinner. To me it is comfort food. I hope you enjoy it as well.

    Welcome Patricia. Here is an old cooks trick...When you have leftover veggies get a quart freezer container. Add the small amounts to the container and freeze. That way when you want soup you have the veggie mix...FOR FREE

    Robyn - I never thought of that but that's a great idea. Michele - Thanks for the tip. I do freeze leftover veggies but usually just take some out for dinner when I haven't had time to get to the store. I'll have to make soup - nothing better to me than a nice bowl of soup. It is one of my favorite comfort foods.
