Quick Tasty Soup from Canned Greens

In cold weather we eat a lot of soup for lunch; something tasty to warm our innards after working out in the cold all morning. I can soups ahead of time and sometimes I just throw leftovers together for Scrap Soup. This recipe uses canned greens and takes only a few extra steps to make a really good soup.

A pint jar of canned greens.
Here I have lambs quarters.

First make a roux. Mine is 1 tbsp melted fat from pork roast drippings
and 2 tbsp flour, although any fat will do. Blend and brown if desired.

Drain the liquid from greens into roux.

Use a whisk to smooth out lumps.

Whisk in your desired liquid until the soup base is the consistency
you like. Liquids can include water, milk, broth, or vegetable juice.

Stir in greens and any other ingredients you like, such as sauteed
onions, bits of ham, sour cream, grated cheese. Season as desired.

Bring to a simmer and serve. Makes 2 soup cups for soup
and sandwiches or one large meal-size bowl of soup.
