November 10: I love leftovers

Filed under: almost a recipe — Tags: , , , , — anotheryarn @ 5:01 pm

I wonder if I’m getting better about leftovers or if I just didn’t think to write about them earlier this year?  Probably the latter, though I’m trying to only write about leftovers when I re-invent them in some manner, not just reheating.  Tonight I took the remaining potato-leek soup (on its last legs, food safety experts would cluck and finger wag at me for eating it, but I figured it had no meat…) and leftover steamed broccoli and made it into potato-broccoli-cheddar soup.  I don’t think it was as good as my recipe for broccoli-cheddar soup but it was still decent and I always feel proud when I use up the last bits of things.

I dumped the soup into a pan, added a little more milk (about 2/3 cup) to help thin it out and slowly heated it up.  Then I added a generous handful of grated cheddar cheese and stirred until it melted into the soup.  Finally I cut the broccoli into smaller bite sized pieces, added it to the soup and let everything simmer for about 10 minutes.  A couple slices of bread and tada – dinner.
