Creative Leftovers – Using Leftover Soup

Soups are a winter lunchtime staple at our house. Unfortunately, my kids lose their enthusiasm for just about any soup on day 2, so I have to figure out what to do with leftover soup. A fast Google search produced many results on how to make soup out of leftovers (that’s a no-brainer), but pitifully few ideas of ways to use leftover soup.

Here are some things that I do to give leftover soup new appearances:

1. Mash some of the vegetables with a stick blender and add new seasoning. It will look like a different soup.

2. Remove the vegetables, mash, mix with flour and eggs and fry as croquettes.  Stuff into a pita with humus and tahini for a falafel alternative.

3. Remove the vegetables and use in a stir-fry. Freeze the broth to use in a sauce.

4. Use the solids for a casserole. (HT to @mominisrael)

Here’s an ad-hoc recipe for a 15-minute meal out of leftover vegetable soup:

Tuna Couscous Sauce

leftover vegetable soup

1-2 cans tomato sauce


2 cans tuna

1/2 tbsp paprika

1 tsp salt

Simmer together for 15 minutes and serve over couscous.
