A delicious 'use up' soup recipe for all your leftovers.

 570 ml chicken stock
 1 sliced garlic clove
 4 over ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
 A handful of runner beans, chopped
 1 tbsp homemade tomato ketchup or tomato puree
 A drained tin of mixed beans
 French bread
 Leftover soft cheese
 Virgin olive oil
 Black pepper

Heat the chicken stock in a saucepan and add sliced garlic, chopped tomatoes, chopped runner beans, homemade tomato ketchup or tomato puree.


Then add mixed beans and let the soup bubble for about 4-5 minutes.


For the bread croutes, cut slices, not too thick, from a stale French bread stick and toast them under the grill.


Then sprinkle a mixture of leftover soft cheeses into the soup bowls. Ladle the bubbling soup over the cheese and top it with the toasts, a good drizzle of virgin olive oil and a generous grating of black pepper.
