Chicken and vegetable soup
We have some chicken leftover from the roast we had on Sunday so I stripped the carcass and boiled up the bones to make stock. This was then used to make chicken and vegetable soup. Most of the vegetables came from the stock itself. It seemed a shame to waste them. I also added in some potatoes and a small marrow that was not going to last much longer.
The resulting soup has provided us with main meals for three days. In keeping up with the no-waste approach to life, the bones are not being thrown out after making the stock. They will be roasted and then pulverized to make bone meal. Most of the feathers have been stored away. When we have enough we will use them to make a quilt.
