Have you ever come home with a box of leftovers, only to wonder what to do with it? We often run into the quandry of only one person bringing food home, while the other polishes their meal off. The leftovers aren't really enough for two people, and you can't have "leftover night" with half a meal. We came across this quandry, and, while perusing the contents of my to-go box, I realized that I had the makings for a soup.
The Restaurant--a duck breast, a scoop of citrus wild rice, and a few carrots and green beans.
Next, I added a box of chicken broth, as well as some salt and pepper.
You could do this with any leftovers. Got some steak and potatoes? Saute some onions and garlic, then pour in some beef broth, the steak and potatoes. How about fish? Make it into a creamy chowder with a roux, and make it heartier with corn and potatoes. Turn spaghetti into a tomato-pasta goulash soup. Make your leftovers taste as new and delicious as they did the first time around!
