The Snowballing Leftovers Soup

I was thawing some frozen wienerwursts for lunch the old school way – simmering in a pot – and thought ‘Hey, this might turn into soup’. So I fished the sausages out and sliced them up, and then started rummaging through the fridge, freezer and cupboards. Into the pot went a cube of beef stock, an inch of leek and the sausages again. Looked a bit empty, so I put the last of a bag of frozen hash, some frozen carrots and a bit of red cabbage in. Stil a bit thin, so I decided to add a handful of rice. Herbs and spices added and the whole thing simmered for 15 minutes.

Aforementioned soup with our fabulous mushroom coasters, to increase the nerd factor slightly.

Cooking like this is a great way to get rid of leftovers and it’s also saving money since soup keeps one full longer than an equal amount of solids, a fact that science and diet experts have been pointing to a lot recently but which has been known for a good deal longer, looking at soup kitchens, first courses and so on.
