Jamie says: This is a testament to the power of leftovers. In the fridge there were leftover steamed carrots (a side from dinner), beans and escarole (a previous day’s lunch), chicken stock (an ingredient for a recipe), and chicken (from a restaurant dinner). I put them all together in a lovely soup- and there I had it- a great lunch. This type of cooking reminds me of my grandmother’s style of cooking- she uses “whatever falls out of the fridge”- and it’s always delicious.
