Even though it was in the 90s today and will be again tomorrow, it's still Fall! For the past month I have been making one new soup a week and then eating it all week for lunch or supper. I am here alone almost every day and most evenings so making a dinner for more than me and the kid is silly. I pack a breakfast and lunch for my guy, so leftovers do get eaten, but never in time to use them up good.
I LOVE SOUP and find a cup of soup a day helps keep me on track. Tonight I made an asparagus soup that uses those left-over ends on the asparagus that most people toss out. I liked it and will make it again, and I can see this being good for left over broccoli ends too. The recipe calls for 1.25lbs of asparagus and I only had about 1 lb, so I tossed some frozen (thawed) broccoli in there and it fits in.
I got 7 servings of soup that will last me several days for lunch. Last week I made a large pot of vegetarian veggie soup that got me 16 servings and was very good, it was like minnestone without the beans or pasta. The veggie soup froze well and so it earns an A+ for me.
What soups are you looking forward to making? Have you tried anything new recently you'd like to share? It's a challenge to constantly come up with ideas for 4-6 meals a day and not be too repetative.
