I made a homemade vegetable soup - using mostly leftovers and ONLY things I already had HERE in the house.
I grabbed some beef broth and tossed it in the pot, followed by some chopped red onion, and a couple of cans of water. I set all of that to boiling with a little kosher salt and pepper. Then I threw in a can of diced tomatoes - but any tomatoey-something would work - like stewed tomatoes or even tomato sauce! Then I added the taco meat, the green beans, about half the roasted potatoes, half of a fresh zuchini - chopped, one carrot - chopped, one stalk of celery - chopped, a handful of chopped Kale and some garlic powder and I let it all boil. Then I turned it down to a simmer and let it cook for almost an hour.
Oh.MY.gawd. It was really, REALLY good.
Every bite had a TON of veggies in it and there was just enough meat to give it a little flavor.
So good. And healthy.
Upcycling from the fridge - I'm going to *try* to make this a weekly entry and habit!
