Some of you are going to laugh. Some of you are going to wonder if I’ve lost my mind. Kitchen Sink Soup? That does not sound delicious…
I seriously thought I ought to call this soup something else. Something more…um…appealing? But, for some reason this is what we started calling this pull-everything-out-of-the-refrigerator-and-stick-it-in-a-pot concoction, and well, if I were to name it anything else, I wouldn’t be true to the weirdness that is our family. (Please tell me you have weird names for stuff too!)
The whole idea for Kitchen Sink Soup came about as a result of my needing to revamp homeschool lunches into something SUPER EASY. Next week, I plan to share the full plan with you, but suffice it to say it has been a lifesaver!
So, what is Kitchen Sink Soup? It’s everything but the kitchen sink!
Come on in to my kitchen and see what I mean…

Kitchen Sink Soup is basically a soup made from your leftovers with a few add-ins to make it extra yummy! Have a little leftover hamburger? Throw it in there! Have a few leftover veggies? Throw them in there! Have a can of beans or black olives? Throw those in there too! Add some broth or milk, some spices and cheese and you have a nutritious homeschool lunch that can simmer on the stove while you teach your little ones.
We have Kitchen Sink Soup a couple times a week to finish off any leftovers we’ve become tired of eating on. I get quite a sense of satisfaction knowing I’m not throwing out leftovers, but reinventing them into something different and yummy!
In the video above, you’ll see how I make the soup, plus a short list of some add-in ideas. You’ll also see me without makeup and my hair pulled up in my usual “mom-has-work-to-do hairdo.” Try throwing together your own Kitchen Sink Soup – actually, why don’t you call it something else so no one will look at you funny the way they do when I tell them what we had for lunch – then, come back here and tell me what you put in it, as I’d love to have some new ideas for my soup!
