What to Do with Leftover Vegetable Soup
Reheating leftover vegetable soup is one of the simplest ways to enjoy it all over again. To do this, transfer the soup to a saucepan and heat it over medium heat until it reaches your desired temperature.
Make a Soup Pie
Leftover vegetable soup can easily be reincarnated into a delicious pie. This consists of a pastry base and a scoop of leftover vegetable soup, topped off with grated cheese. You can make your own pastry base or use shortcrust pastry from the store.
Another great way to give your leftover vegetable soup a new lease of life is to turn it into a stir fry. Simply add the soup to a wok or frying pan and cook with other fresh vegetables to give a delicious new flavor.
Fry with Onions and Potatoes
Make the most of your vegetable soup by combining it with some fried onions and potatoes. This creates a thick consistency which works great with the soup, and provides some crunch too.
Mash or Blend It
Mashing the vegetable soup or blending it helps to create a fresh and zesty flavor. The mashed soup can also be served with other ingredients, like cheese and steak, to give it an extra kick of flavor.
If you’re looking to save your vegetable soup for later on, why not freeze it? Simply pour the soup into an airtight container, label it and put in the freezer. This way you’ll have a delicious meal ready whenever you’re ready to heat it up.
Add to Other Dishes
Leftover vegetable soup can also be added to other dishes to give them a veggie-licious twist. From pizza to lasagne, just add a tablespoon or two of your soup to the dish for extra flavor.
