If, like me, you’re alone in your home right now, this recipe freezes well. Use a souper cube to freeze leftovers or allow the soup to cool before scooping into quart sized bags. Squeeze out the air, seal, and freeze. I often find I can eat a quart of the frozen soup in a day on my own, and by doing that with this recipe, I enjoyed over six meals with it by myself.
This recipe is a base for using whatever you have in your fridge that simply needs to go. Greens like spinach or kale can also be added to make sure it gets a second chance as well. No white beans? Kidney beans or black beans will be fine. No fresh tomato? A can of diced tomatoes will render a similar amount of liquid as the large fresh diced tomato.
I also keep bouillon on hand to make some chicken broth for whenever I don’t have any homemade stock around. In these first few weeks alone, it’s been especially useful. I don’t eat enough meat to have the bones around for a good stock as often as I used to when feeding two people instead of one.
