Using Up What’s In The Cupboard – Tomato, Bean and Bacon Soup and Easy Quiche

I made two dishes this morning just using what I had on hand. Easy quiche and tomato, bean and bacon soup. These are for meals during the week.

My Easy Quiche

4 eggs (because that’s how many I had)
sweet corn
green beans
diced bacon
grated tasty cheese
self raising flour

Spray a casserole dish with oil. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. The mixture needs to hold together but not be too runny or too stiff. I put in 1/2 cup flour which made it a bit stiff so I added a little milk, no more than a tablespoon or two. Cook at 200C for about 1/2 an hour. If you stick a knife in and it comes out clean it’s cooked.

Tomato, Bean and Bacon Soup
This is even easier.

1 lrg tin diced tomatoes
1 sml tin 3 bean mix (can be any beans you like)
diced bacon
1 bacon stock cube
2 heaped teaspoons sugar

Put all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, cook on high for 5 minutes. Serve with crusty bread or as an entree before the quiche.
