There are three people currently at my nightly dinner table and I am the biggest eater by far. So, frequently there are leftovers. Soup is a great way to make a quick nutrious meal out of leftovers. We had cabbage, corn, and carrots leftover from dinner the night before.
Chop the cabbage and place everything in the soup pot. Add vegetable broth, a tablespoon of tomato paste, and 2 boiled potatoes and some frozen peas to the mix. Simmer for 15 minutes then add some orzo pasta. Cook for another 20 minutes and serve.
We had a mixed green salad and sliced pears with that for a great quick dinner. I had the leftover soup the next day for lunch.
