A recent trip to visit Amelia inspired me to get better about using up the food I have in the fridge and cook without a recipe. She can just open up her fridge and come up with amazing healthy food choices without running off the grocery store. I found the items in my fridge dwindling the other night but with her help, I came up with a yummy soup using things I had around.
Here’s what I had that was fresh:
I sauteed the leeks in olive oil with salt, pepper and thyme. Then I chopped up the chicken sausages and added them to the leeks, then added about ten cups worth of chopped up kale (stems removed). I cooked the sweet potatoes for a few minutes in the microwave so they were soft and chopped them up.
I am so thankful for all the cooking tips I’ve learned from Amelia, and I’m pretty sure my husband is grateful too!
