Soup from Leftover Scraps

November 9, 2006

Soup from Leftover ScrapsGet more servings out of leftovers by adding more ingredients. For example, if you have some leftover vegetable soup, but only enough for a couple servings, add some chicken broth and a can of vegetables or tomatoes.


Another thing you can do is combine leftovers; leftover sauces can be used in casseroles, leftover rice can be used in casseroles and soup, left over meat and can used in numerous dishes, etc.

My friend used to call this hodge-podge "leftover soup". She put all the food that was left during the week into a huge pot & simmered. Her husband and sons always looked forward to this mystery soup. On the other hand, my friend couldn't bring herself to eat it b/c she said it didn't always look so tasty! LOL

Save all your vegetable peelings and ends, along with meat bones, in the freezer. When you have enough, make a broth that can be enjoyed as is, or as a base for other soups.


I used the Instant Pot soup setting, which is 30 minutes after coming to pressure. If you are making it on the stovetop, allow a couple of hours.

Even before the quarantine, I have always had two bags in my freezer; one for vegetable scraps and the other for bones. When the bags are full, it is time to make soup.
