I come from a long line of soup makers. As you have read, we lost someone this week. My Oma, dutch grandmother, passed away. She was a great soup maker and so in honour of her I got out the soup pot and starting throwing things in. I had a can of chickpeas, and some leftover parsley, some pasta noodles Sustainable PF doesn’t like as well as some leftover frozen vegetables that weren’t quite enough to make a meal with but just enough for soup. Add to that some spices and about 1.5 hrs on simmer and voila an awesome soup, a cleaner pantry and I didn’t buy a thing!

Great tip. We often clean out our pantry for some easy and tasty meals. We love soups because they are so versatile. You really can turn anything into a soup.
While cleaning out the pantry I also clean out part of my freezer of veggie scraps which I use for broth.
I’ve been working on doing this lately – trying to clean out the freezer as well. MY progress is modest, to say the least.
