Name: Leftover Soup



Yield: four servings

Comments: 12/04/2011. I used leftover Egyptian Baked Fish. I liked the flavor.
12/29/2011. I used leftover fish fillets With sherry-mushroom sauce and the red potatoes I had served with them. Good again.
5/1/2012 - I did not measure the noodles carefully, just poured a bunch into the pot. They soaked up all the liquid!
6/10/2012 - I included several brocoli florets with the carrots and and six shrimp to the leftover fish.
2/25/2013 - Only had about one cup of leftovers, so added second carrot, half cup of frozen green peas and 6.5 oz can of minced clams. Solids to liquid ratio was high.
11/23/2014 - Sautéd 1/2 a small onion and sliced mushrooms with the carrots. I served it with cornbread made with almond milk, which turned out OK.
3/15/2015 - I used leftover Fish in Vegetable Sauce, and added some onion, sliced mushrooms, and microwaved broccoli in addition to the carrot.
1/17/2016 - I followed the recipe, but it seems there was less liquid than I remembered from the past.
5/4/2016 - I included sliced mushrooms with the carrots and added a teaspoon of black pepper.
3/23/2017 - I used the basic recipe, except I added 4 cups of chicken broth/bouillon. We had nearly 4 full servings.
12/6/2017 - I used 1/2 lb of swordfish steak, 1/2 small onion, 4 cups of chicken bouillon, and a 12 oz bag of frozen vegetables in modification to the standard recipe.
2/11/2018 - With 4 cups of bouillon, 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups of egg noodles, and 1 teaspoon of black pepper, we had 4 to 5 servings.
2/28/2018 - No fish. Converted this into leftover chicken soup. I used about one cooked chicken breast, 3 medium red potatoes, a 15 oz can of mixed greens, 9 to 10 oz of green beans, 4 cups of chicken broth, 2 cups of bouillon, and 1 1/2 cups of noodles. We got about 8 servings.
8/2/2018 - Substituted elbow macaroni for the egg noodles we were missing. Four cups of bouillon and the rest resulted in a little more than we could eat in one sitting.
10/25/2018 - Added 2 cloves of garlic and about 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro to the carrots. It did not appreciably change the flavor. I also used 32 oz (4 cups) of low-sodium chicken broth. We had four servings.
1/30/2019 - I used 1 teaspoon of black pepper. Maybe it was a little too much. I used 32-oz of vegetable broth. We did not have any leftover vegetables so I microwaved 5 small red potatoes and half a bag of frozen corn. We had four servings and maybe half a cup leftover. I'm updating the recipe to include onions, garlic, and pepper.
3/9/2019 - No fish. Gail left some cooked veggie sausage plus baked potatoes.
3/26/2019 - I forgot to add the spices. Not so good!
10/27/2019 - No fish. I substituted a teaspoon of garlic powder for the two cloves. I used two cups of egg noodles instead of one. For meat, I used 1 1/2 pork chops. It gave us about 5 servings.
2/25/2020 - There weren’t any egg noodles in our cabinet! I sautéd two small red potatoes, diced , with the carrots and onion. I only used 3 cups of bouillon, and used one can of mixed vegetables, drained, with the leftover salmon and rice.
10/18/2020 - I made approximately 1/2 the recipe, using 2 cups of broth and 1 egg. I used leftover Shrimp Kaobo-it, roasted cauliflower, and couscous. I omitted the black pepper because the cauliflower and shrimp were very spicy.
4/4/2022 - No fish, I based this on 2 cups of unused pasty filling. I used 2 cups of egg noodles and added 1 teaspoon of salt substitute. We finished it in one meal.
5/30/2022 - No fish again. This time leftovers from Tandoori Chicken and Indian Spiced Peas with a can of cut asparagus. I used 3 cups of broth and omitted the eggs. We ate it in one meal.
7/10/2022 - The base was 1 1/4 cup of leftover Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Ginger and Turmeric, 3 cups of leftover Cauliflower with Tomatoes and Cumin, 3/4 cup of frozen peas, and 2 cups of vegetable broth. I omitted the onion and eggs. We ate it in one meal.
11/15/2022 - The leftovers were from Cod and Tomatoes Oreganata. I used 4 cups of chicken bouillon, 1 1/2 cups of noodles, and topped it with parsley. I omitted the eggs.

7/17/2023 - I renamed this recipe “Leftover Soup”, from it's original name of “Leftover Fish Soup”, since I use it for meat leftovers as well as fish leftovers.
