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.
