Curried Chicken Rice Soup
Left Over Make over
The soup was the result of left over curried chicken. Not wanting it to go to waste, I combined the curried chicken, cooked rice, sweet peas, and chopped green onion into a large saucepan and added some chicken broth. Some more curry powder, a little cumin and more fresh, chopped green onion....BAM! You can add more chicken or more veggies. If you have a can of lentils or garbanzos (chickpeas), feel free to add that, too.
Make It Vegetarian!
If you have left over vegetarian curry (lentil, chickpea, potato, etc.) then just make the soup with your favorite vegetable stock or water, add some more veggies and some more seasoning. Adding coconut milk will give you a rich, creamy soup without the dairy.
- Combine all ingredients into a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.
