This is a great leftover recipe.
I used all my leftover vegetables including that one lonely potato.
One large diced onion
Two diced celery stalks
One diced leftover potato
1/4 cup butter
One cup chopped bok choy
3/4 cups leftover peas
About 12 leftover asparagus spears cut into bite size pieces
One cup water
Two chicken bouillon cubes
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 cups of milk or half and half
One teaspoon grated lemon rind
The juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Melt the butter in a pan
Add the onion and celery
Cook till soft
Add the potato for two minutes
Add the box choy
Mix the water with the cornstarch and mix in the bouillon cubes
Add to the vegetables and bring to a slow boil
Add the milk, asparagus and peas.
Add the nutmeg, lemon juice and rind
Simmer for about ten minutes on medium low till everything is hot.
I made this twice.
Once with all my leftover vegetables and the second time with fresh vegetables.
Both were delicious
The fresh vegetable soup was greener.
Use pepper to taste but be careful with the salt because the bouillon is salty.
I found this and several other nice recipes from the Genius Kitchen on Pinterest but I did change it a little.
