‘Leftovers’ Soup

This was a recipe born out a necessity to clear out some ageing vegetables to make room for fresh replacements.  Matilda and I had roast chicken last night and placed the carcass, which still had some meat on it, in the fridge overnight.  This is literally what I had left in the fridge so use this recipe as a framework and build in whatever you had sitting around on your fridge shelves and drawers.

Ps. That’s my little sons hand in the frame – mine are normal size in case there was any confusion.

Here’s how it rolled:

  • Place the carcass plus any gelatine in a large saucepan and cover with approx 3 litres water – enough to cover the chicken plus some
  • Add the bay leaves, peppercorns, herbs de Provence, salt and bring to the boil
  • Once boiling reduce heat to a moderate simmer and add the sweetcorn, tomatoes, carrots and garlic (this was in the skin and from the roast chicken the night before)
  • Cook for 20 minutes or until corn and carrots are softened.
  • remove cob and cut kernels off before returning them to the soup
  • Remove from the heat and remove any bones before blending using a stick blender
  • Add the butter, chopped parsley and yoghurt
  • Season and serve
