|A little of this, a little of that...|
So now I am taking up a practice that I used to do and fell out of the habit. I keep a big tupperware tub in my freezer (the biggest one I have right now is about 5 cups) and whenever I just have a bit of something leftover I add it to the tub. It could be a small piece of chicken that I dice up first, a scoop of greens, the last spoon of beans, some pasta I didn't finish, 1/2 can of green beans...I don't discriminate! If it tasted good, it goes in. I also keep a gallon bag with all my veggie trimmings in the freezer, celery tops, onion peels and roots, carrot peels, herb stems. No broccoli or cabbage or potatoes or anything that will taste bitter, but the rest goes in.
I use the veggie trimmings to supplement the water when I make chicken stock, although if I have a full bag and no chicken bones I have been known to make a small batch of veggie stock as well.
|Almost full, will become delicious soup before too long!|
Serve with a hunk of fresh baked bread and some parmesan grated on top...DELICIOUS! And made primarily from the odds and ends that otherwise would have ended up in the trash.
