It was one of those clean out the refrigerator nights and I found 3/4s of a jar of homemade tomato soup and some leftover jasmine rice. I didn’t want to just have tomato rice soup so I thought I’d dress it up a little with the addition of a bit of shrimp and an avocado. I must say that it turned into a very delicious leftovers dinner recipe. It could easily be made as a “first dinner” if you know what I mean and I am sure I’ll do just that in the future. It was really that good. And if you didn’t have shrimp, chicken would work just as well. You do have to love a delicious dinner for two.

How Was the Leftovers Dinner?

Downright delicious if you ask me! I had made the tomato soup the night before from tomatoes I had put up last year so the soup was really flavorful and it was nothing but tomato, basil, oregano a little white wine and a bit of milk. The shrimp were sweet with that hit of garlicky goodness.

The avocado added a rich creaminess and the sour cream was another layer of flavor. All in all a meal I’d be happy to eat again. Leftovers dinner night certainly can lead to a very yummy meal. I do love soup for dinner, how about you? Some of my favorites include Asian Shrimp and Vegetable Soup or if it’s a stormy night Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup is heavenly.
