Beef Rice Soup

on February 20, 2013

I snapped this picture with my iPod. not too bad. 😉

If there is one thing I dislike more than doing dishes and laundry it has to be cleaning out the fridge every Thursday morning and tossing the past weeks leftovers!  I don’t know about anyone else but it seems like to me when I make less there isn’t enough because everyone is starving! But when I make more I end up putting another meals worth in a container and into the fridge to be forgotten about and tossed on Thursday!

I have been in a soup mood for a few days now and today while looking in the cupboard for some soup nothing seemed to jump out and beg to be cooked.  I thought about dinner I had made the night before last and I grabbed the beef bouillon to make a broth.  Out of the fridge came the Veggie fried rice.  It was amazing, and it satisfied me in more than one way.  First It satisfied my soup craving and second it was satisfying knowing that was one less meal that went to waste.

I am assuming this might work with fried rice from a Chinese take out too!  I just might have to try it next time!

Here is what I did:

4 cups of water

4 beef bouillon cubes

approx. 1 ½ cups of leftover veggie fried rice.

1 tsp. crushed peppercorns

Bringt the water and bouillon cubes to a boil and cooked until the cubes dissolved

slowly add in the 1 ½ cups of fried rice and crushed peppercorns

boil about 5 minutes

serve with crackers!
