As I mentioned in a previous post, Chickens and Their Stock, weekly, I make a really good stock from some grilled or roasted chickens and make a souper healthy dinner and/or lunch from it. As promised, I thought I'd pass out some of my go-to fillings for the pot. I know I'm mostly preaching to the choir when I talk about being creative in the kitchen, so please, feel free to share your yummy ideas, as the possibilities for soups are endless. The ones I'll share here, I mostly do with my budget in mind. Soup is my money-saving meal, so we can continue splurging on delicious and nutritious foods all week long!
2.) The more obvious choice...pulled chicken, noodles, carrots, celery, other veggies like parsnips or turnips.
3.) Roasted white fish, a can of coconut milk, curry and rice.
4.) Leftover roast, a can of diced tomatoes, chili powder, rice, olives.
5.) Ground beef, frozen spinach, tomatoes, garnish with cheese and green onions.
Often, I do things as simple as rice and frozen veggies, as you don't need a ton of seasoning, since you've made the yummiest stock on earth already!!! My ideas aren't rocket science, but hopefully, they get the ball rolling for you to make your own souper idea! What are some of your simple soup creations?
