How to Turn Leftovers into Soup

 

Find yourself throwing out bits and pieces of meals? A few kernels of corn, a spoonful of beans? Well, here's a way to put those leftovers to use: Scrap Soup.

Just place a container in the freezer, and add your food scraps until it's full. Then, dump the contents into a pot; add some broth and seasoning; heat through; and you have a cheap and tasty meal from food that would have otherwise been thrown away.

Good Things to Save:

  • Beans
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Vegetables
  • Bits of meat

We don't toss much. DH eats anything left over from dinner for lunch.

There isn't much that gets toseed around here between leftovers and lunch or even revamping it into a new meal it always gets used!
