This week I did pretty well. Thanks to Kristen (aka Frugal Girl) and her challenge to all of us not to waste food, I’m regularly getting a handle on what is in the fridge.
We’re having at least one, leftover night a week and I now take a really good look (even the lurkers in the back) in the fridge before I shop.
Having said that-a black head of lettuce makes this song run through my head.
Squeeze in the juice of 1 medium orange and the zest.
I added 3 green onions (the whites only) to use them up. No green onions? Half of a regular onion would be just fine.
Cover with Chicken stock (roughly 5 cups) and let burble away until the carrots are tender.
Whizz with your hand blender (food processor, blender or potato masher will work just fine too) and season with a bit of worstershire, salt and pepper.
Just for fun, I’ve garnished with a sprinkle of Small One’s stash of wasabi peas.
Hopefully she won’t notice them missing.
Happy Eating 🙂
