Broccoli and Bean Soup

February 8, 2012
Healthy LeftoversAs a student it is very important that I know how to use up the leftover food in my kitchen.  This way I can make healthy and cheap food during what student’s like to call “Empty Pocket Month”.  Soup is one of the best dishes to achieve this and you might even invent a new soup recipe.  I decided to use only a few ingredients as I wanted something light.


1/4 of a medium Brocolli (cut into chunky bits), 1 Green Chilli (chopped), 1/4 of a Red Onion (chopped into small pieces), 2 gloves of crushed Garlic, 1 can of Mixed Bean salad, 1/4 Red Pepper, 1.2 litres Vegetable Stock.


This dish was inspired by ‘End – of Term Pasta & Bean Soup’ in Sam Stern’s Student Cookbook, (Walker Books)1. Heat oil in a pot and fry garlic and onion until they are soft.
2. Then add broccoli, beans, chilli and red pepper and stir for 4 minutes.
3. Add the stock and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Add lemon juice and seasoning to taste.

Saffy’s Top Tips

  1. Add potatoes or pasta to make it more filling.
    2. You can grate cheese on the top if you feel you’re missing something.
    3. Eat with some thick toasted bread.
