Food cooking and eating – stories and ideas from a passionate foodie

Yes – the fourth day of leftovers – just lovely delicious soup!

We boiled the chicken carcass the day before, after making risotto…and that was fab too…

Then – soup had onion which was in the stock,so just left them in. And we had some mushrooms and some skinny bits of dwarf sweet corn.. Zapped them in the microwave, and fried off the sliced mushrooms in butter and olive oil – adding dried herbs and lemon and some ripped basil leaves.

Delicious soup!

Delicious soup!

The soup had scotch broth mix (left over from when we did the living on a pound a day effort) – lentils, barley, split peas etc) which I had soaked overnight.  Added the mushrooms and the sweet corn, and ate it with hunks of fresh bread…stunning on a damp autumn evening…

You really do feel both virtuous and frugal and green all at the same time
