Better Than Campbell's Soup

Category Leftovers

Keep a large plastic container with a lid in your freezer. Into this, put excess juice (full of vitamins!) from canned vegetables; meat or poultry juices, diluted with hot water from fry pans or broiler pans.


Also add small amounts of leftover vegetables, from peas and green beans to stewed tomatoes!

When the pot is about 2/3 full, remove it and hold it under hot water to loosen the contents. Remove fat that will have risen to the top and pop this glob into a deep kettle.

Add diced onion and possibly green pepper. Let thaw over medium heat and simmer well to blend flavors. Add instant potato flakes, a handful or two of macaroni or rice. You can also micro brown 1/2 lb. or more of hamburger meat and add that. Always add a tablespoon or so of sugar. Campbell Soups beware!
