Fast food doesn't have to be junk food. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
I've always had a gift for making a meal out of nothing. To make sure you are whipping up something that is not only fast, but healthy is a lot easier if you have little leftover bits of wholesome food in your pantry, fridge, or freezer.
This Yogarific Kitchen Sink Soup is a great example! So, read on then head into your kitchen to see what you have on hand to whip this up!
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Makes: 1 serving
- 2 cups broth (fresh, frozen, or store-bought)
- 1/8 cup onion, diced
- 1/2 cup carrots, diced
- 1/2 cup celery, diced
- 1/2 cup broccoli, chopped
- 1 tbsp wild rice (or brown basmati)
- 2 tbsp lentils (dried or canned)
In a saucepan, boil the broth. Add your ingredients and let simmer for 30 minutes (until veggies are soft and rice and lentils are cooked).
Serve & Enjoy!
Bonus Tip: Need to kick it up a notch? Add a splash of hot sauce!
Note: True to its name, this soup is positively a product of the "kitchen sink". You don't have to follow my ingredient list exactly. No lentils on hand? How about a half can of white beans (or any other type you might have in the cupboard). As for the veggies -- toss in whatever you have in your fridge or freezer! Get creative!
