Tonight’s dinner came together fast because after a day of celebrating Ohio State’s win over their forever rival.. Michigan and then a nap, we were hungry and craving something warm! I wanted something filling and low-cal that would satisfy my need for comfort food. Brady was just hungry (so hungry in fact, that he began cooking some Gimme Lean Soy Sausage – fake meat is not his thing, but he did say it was “not so bad” )
Anyways, I went to the cupboard and grabbed the following:
leftover kale and broccoli (about a cup total)
1 can kidney beans
1 cup steamed lentils (from TJ’s in the fridge pack…so good!)
1 can mixed vegetables
1 can Italian diced tomatoes
3ish cups of water
1 can Progresso chicken broth
1 box of Trader Joe’s instant mashed potatoes WITHOUT the butter/garlic seasoning
Mix the water and broth together and add beans, kale, broccoli, lentils, mixed vegetables, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. At the last minute, add the potatoes and stir well. The soup will immediately thicken and become creamy! Soo good!
I added parmesan to my bowl!
8-10 servings. Data is based on 8 servings in whole pot.
