Homemade Leftover Soup...Another Poor Man's Dinner
Its almost the end of the month and this means just a few food items are left in the refrigerator until grocery day. When this happens in my house...I make soup with the ingredients I have in the fridge.
With that thought in mind I made another Poor Man's Dinner out of a little bit of leftover veggies, chick peas, TVP & Shirataki Spaghetti noodles. Throw in some spices and "OLE" I have a great soup for dinner.
Here is my recipe and I must say I could not eat just 1 bowl, I had 2 bowls with crackers...yummy.
1/2 c. chopped kale
1-1/2 c. cooked barley
2 c. chopped collard greens
3 large size Brussels sprouts
(chopped in small pieces)
1 chopped yellow onion
1 c. cooked garbanzos
1 ripe plantain
( sliced in circles and then sliced in 4)
3 envelopes of Jamom
1 envelope of Sazon
1/2 tsp. salt & black pepper
(use more if you wish)
1 T. onion & garlic powder
1/8 tsp. red crushed pepper
1 T. parsley
1/2 can of tomato sauce
1 T. olive oil
1 T. homemade sofrito
(recipe in my recipe box)
1/2 bag of Shirataki Spaghetti noodles or use any noodles of your choice.
1 container of vegetable broth & 2 cups of water.
Put everything in a large soup pot and boil until soup has become flavorful and saucy.
Serve with a sandwich or crackers.
