Super Soup-er Leftovers: making an old meal new!

After having a few bowls of my delicious pumpkin black bean soup, I was getting a little tired of the repetition. How to spice things up? I added some chicken. I simply popped some chicken tenders into my super grill pan and cooked them until they were no longer pink in the center. I placed a pot lid over the chicken to speed things up. Once the chicken was cooked, I cut up a few ounces to top my last bowl of soup with. This was a great way to make the old meal seem new!



Vegetarian? No problem! Try some veggie chick'n strips, sauteed tofu or a few chunks of sharp cheddar cheese for variety.

What will I do with the rest of the chicken? I don't know yet. I do know that they'll be ready when I'm hungry, making eating well simple! They can be tossed with some fresh veggies and salad greens for a light but filling salad, wrapped in a whole grain tortilla with tomatoes and avocado or even chopped in a salad with whole grain couscous and Mediterranean toppings such as tomatoes, black olives, artichoke hearts and cucumber. The possibilities are endless.
