We've all been super sick. It started last week when my baby developed a fever, cough, buggers accompanied by shear misery. Then five days later, my son caught it and a few days after that, my oldest daughter then my youngest daughter. I've just been too exhausted to even figure out if I'm sick.
Did I mention that this week is midterms for this mama? Yepppp..
The chorus of coughing and rapid consumption of tissues has lead to eating a ton of frozen foods which require no prep. We went through our freezer stash quickly! Today, before heading to the grocery store I decided to make a quick and easy dump soup.
Basically the premise of the dump soup is that you dump leftovers into a pot with broth. For this soup, I used:
One carton of broth,
1/2 lb of lentils
Two celery stalks sliced
8 baby carrots sliced
1/4 of an onion
And 1 cup cooked spinach from last nights dinner.
Then salt to taste.
Start by adding the lentils to the broth in your favorite soup pot.
Add in diced celery, carrots and onion.
Let simmer for 20- 25 minutes
When tender, add in ingredient that don't require a lot of cooking like the cooked spinach and salt.
Enjoy! The results would give Amy's canned lentil soups a run for her money!
Do you ever make dump soups? What do you like to add? Tell me about them in the comment section!
