Homemade chicken noodle soup is my go to easy meal. If no noodles, I add rice. I always have everything on hand.

I am simmering a pot right now - the whole house smells mouth-watering.

Here's mine...

Adjust all ingredients to your liking...

Broth - I use chicken
Tortellini's - I use the cheese stuffed ones you find in refrigerated section of the store
Spinach - a boat load! You know how it wilts
Green onions

Bring broth to a boil, add tortellini and cook until almost done, dump in a bunch of spinach and stir until fully wilted. Add chopped green onions and serve. Takes minutes and I love it!

Sliced avocado sprinkled with salt and pepper on a toasted pumpernickel bagel.

Or black bean soup.

Or both.

This is a traditional hometown thing for me, except chopped onion is also cooked in the broth till transparent. Sometimes, diced celery, as well.

Sausage, beans and greens.

Get sausage, a can of beans, water or broth and chopped kale or chard. If you have extra time, grab an onion too. Maybe some chili flakes. Or dried thyme. These are not necessary though.

1. chop the sausage into bite sized chunks or use a crumbled sausage. It all works. This is a good time to use reserved pork fat.
2. brown the sausage in oil (optional since many sausages have plenty of fat) over medium heat. If you are adding soices, add them here.
3. add onions halfway through if using
4. add some water/broth to deglaze the pan, you need around half a cup - 3/4 a cup
5. add beans
6. add greens
7. simmer till greens are cooked and beans are heated. Feel free to add some bell peppers if you want. Turn up the heat if there is too much liquid left.
8. add salt and pepper to taste. The sausage may have given your beans and greens plenty of flavor.

Serve on its own, with rice or over pasta! Ratios do not matter at all. All sausage works as well, I like hot links or andouille. But you can use anything - pork, beef or chicken. I am sure vegetarian sausage would be fine too.

chickpea curry

Get a can of chickpeas, a can of diced tomatoes, half a chopped onion, a couple of cloves of garlic, ginger (if I do not have fresh ginger, I keep a jar of ginger juice), curry powder and chili flakes (or a fresh chili).

1. cook the onion over medium low heat in some oil, add the spices. I like maybe 1.5 tablespoons of curry powder. Add the chili flakes or fresh chili here.
2. once the onion is translucent, add the garlic, cook for a minute.
3. Add the diced tomatoes and rinsed canned chickpeas.
4. Add half a cup of water (or broth)
5. turn up the heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes

Serve with rice. You can swap lentils (this increases the cooking time by 20 minutes).

Also add chicken if you like. You can cook it first in the pan before you add the cook the onions.
