Soup is such a wonderful food. You can add an extra vegetable here, a little more liquid there, and suddenly, a soup that could be one hearty meal turns into three.
Tonight, I pulled some frozen chicken & rice soup from our freezer. It was enough for two generous portions.
I put the frozen block of soup in a pan on the stove, and got to work stretching it out.
I added three chopped carrots, about four stalks of celery, and two chopped onions. I sprinkled on some extra seasonings, and let it simmer for a little while.
The effort was minimal, and the end result was absolutely delicious.
I had two heaping bowls of soup tonight, and my husband and I will eat the rest of it for lunch tomorrow. If I wanted to stretch it further, I could have added more water and some rice, and even more vegetables.
How do you stretch soup or other foods?
