Giving old dinners new life

Recycling leftovers - potato soup, leftover style

This was the dinner the evening after, the morning after, the evening before (Monday after work). Still stuck with some potatoes dauphinoise and chicken leftovers.

I had never used potatoes dauphinoise this way before. It was a whim really. I thought starch and cream, meaning thickener - ideal for a creamy potato soup. I had made some stock from 2 pints of water and 2 stock cubes. I added a leek, the creamed potatoes, and blended in until smooth. Tasted with some sugar and herbs. sliced the leftover chicken and heated it through.

Presto! Dinner!
