Homemade bread and vegetable soup

Rainy and gloomy.    Rainy days seem to be meant for soup, don't you think so? This is my throw together soup, trying to halfway decipher a French cookbook, using up bits and leftovers from the fridge.


 It honestly is cheat calling this a recipe. Saute some onions, garlic and peppers in herbed olive oil. I also had a few cooked potatoes, green beans, corn and carrots. A can of tomatoes wouldn't go amiss, so those were chunked in too.

 As we made rice for a grilled tuna dinner, a bit of the rice was tossed in too. By evening, after it had sat a bit, the rice had absorbed much of the broth. Simple solution - add some more broth and seasonings.


 This is different ( not by a lot but it is different) from the Fall River Soup I made last week. I didn't use wine this time and there were different veggies - but any time you can use up veggies on hand, soup is the answer.
Zero-Waste week.

This is meant for lunches and maybe as a first course before tonight's dinner.

That looks good!

One of the best soups I ever made was because I didn't have much in the house and I didn't want to run to the store. So I started throwing whatever I could find into a pot. It was so good, and I wished I had written down things as I added them to the pot.

Those can certainly be the best ones, Vicki. We aren't super close to a grocery store so sometimes, we make do with what's in the fridge.

Pantry clean out soups are definitely some of the best and who doesn't love zero-waste?! This looks delicious--I like a thick and hearty soup like this. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

It's a pleasure, Deb. Soup making is always a treat, fun to make and you get a good meal as well.
