Ham And Vegetable Soup

Ham And Vegetable Soup from leftovers, love it! . I think this Ham And Vegetable Soup actually turned out really delicious! I’ll for sure make this again.

We had some left over ham the other night and I was trying to think up something a little more on the healthy side that I could make with it and nothing sounded good except soup. I think this Ham And Vegetable Soup actually turned out really delicious! I’ll for sure make this again. Plus it’s always good to have some ideas for leftovers so that you can make them into more meals. Especially ham. Doesn’t it always seem like you have a ham for Christmas or Easter and then tons of leftovers? I mean, ham sandwiches are only good for so long. Anyway, I hope you save this one because it’s the perfect way to use up veggies and meat before they go bad. Oh, and I think a little onion in this would add great flavor, but I didn’t add it in this recipe.

What Is A Good Substitute For Tomato Paste?

If you don’t have tomato paste, you can use tomato sauce or tomato puree.

Use twice as much sauce or puree than the amount of tomato paste that is called for.

Reduce the liquid in the recipe by about the same amount.

Can Vegetable Soup Be Frozen?

You can freeze homemade vegetable soup.

Let the soup cool and then pour it into heavy duty freezer bags, leaving room for expansion as it freezes.

Soup will keep in the freezer for 4-6 months.
