soup of leftovers

Tonight we had soup made from left over leftovers - the remains of the chicken and tomato casserole we had on Tuesday night, which included, as I'm sure you remember the remains of the tomato, bean and potato dish we had on Saturday night.


1 stick of celery, sliced
1 clove of garlic, smashed and sliced
corn from 1 cob of corn
5 spring onions, sliced
leftover chicken and tomato casserole: take the meat off the chicken maryland and chop, chop the potatoes into smaller pieces


Heat a heavy bottomed saucepan over a medium heat. Add some oil. Add the sliced celery and stir about. Add the garlic and stir again. Add the chopped potatoes and the corn. Add the tomato sauce and some boiling water. Add the spring onions. Bring it all to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken, simmer about 3 minutes. Add some more boiling water if it's looking to thick.

Pour into heated bowls and serve with crusty bread.
