If you knew me, you might describe me with one word — predictable. I am truly not a trendy person; I don’t dress, listen, or cook trendy. Now don’t get me wrong, I find it fun to see what new products and concepts that are on the horizon. So for this blog that is suppose to take a trend and put it in a pot is not my cup of tea. What is my thing is the soup aspect of the blog. I love soup, I would eat it every day if the family would be game for that.
Sometimes I heat up soup from a can, but 98% of the time it is homemade. This recipe is more like the kind my grandmother would make in her kitchen, throwing things into a pot and letting it simmer as you go about the rest of your days chores. I love recipes and spend a lot of time following them row by row. But it is good to step out your comfort zone and wing it. So here is my Lazy Day Leftover Soup.
Lazy Day Leftover Soup
- 2 cans (8 oz) tomato sauce low salt (can substitute tomato juice)
- 2 cups chicken stock (leftover from another meal)
- 16 oz frozen mixed vegetables
- 1 1/2 cups cut up roast beef (leftover from another meal)
- 2 bay leaves
- 1/2 tablespoon parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in enamel covered cast iron pot, cover and place in 250 degree oven for 4 hours. Remove bay leaves before serving.
*If I had some pasta I would have thrown some into the above pot at the end of the cooking time.
