Lentil-Chicken Soup

I love adding leftovers especially soup to other dishes. I’m visiting my folks and the leftover chicken soup from Monday was used for another variation: lentil-chicken soup.

Today was the perfect day for soup – after shovelling snow, something warm like soup was perfect!

My mother prepared lentils – dry lentils (boiled in salted water for 30 minutes). She drained the lentils and added to the leftover chicken soup from Monday. The chicken soup had small cuts of carrots, onion and celery.

Option: adding your favorite rice or pasta is also a nice change.
Optional: adding fresh parmigiano cheese is also great!

Don’t be afraid to add leftovers to something new!

a presto,

maria
