I had to laugh when I put the word “recipe” in the title. Does a dish that requires no cooking qualify as a recipe? For me, a non-cooking person who likes to eat yummy food that fills me up, it qualifies. For those of you who are not big fans of vegetables, this is a tasty way to get them in, disguised in one of your favorite soups.

Leftover or Refrigerator “Stew”

-One cup of a broth-based soup you like – I chose Progresso’s Chicken and Dumplings. Progresso has a line of soups I like that are less than 100 cal per cup and less than one serving of carbohydrate (~15grams) per serving. You could just as easily use a homemade soup you made or picked up at the grocery store.

– 1 cup or more of a a steamed, cooked or frozen vegetable

– 1 left over chicken breast, hamburger or veggie patty chopped up

– 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese – if you don’t like Parmesan you could use
1-2 tablespoons of cheddar, jack or whatever you like

Directions  You can either throw all these ingredients together, except the cheese, in a large bowl and heat them up on the stove or in the microwave, or you can heat each one individually and put them together. I like to heat them altogether as I think the flavors start to blend and it’s easier. After it’s heated to the temperature you desire, sprinkle with cheese.
As always, it is my wish that you’ll take time to bring your attention to what you’re eating and greatly enjoy your food.

With love, Jackie
