What should I fix for dinner?

Asked by Strauss (20327points) November 16th, 2012

I have about 3 hours until dinner, I have no way to get to the grocers. My pantry is a little limited, and I’m at a loss as what to cook. I have some frozen chorizo, frozen bacon, several types of garden greens (chard, beet tops, etc.), frozen. I have couscous, some potatoes, and several types of pasta. I have several cans of black bean soup, and a couple cans of minestrone (soups are not concentrated). I have all the essentials, e.g., cooking oil, condiments, spices, etc. Any suggestions? (P. S., no microwave.)

Reservations or carry out.

Pasta cooked in minestrone soup, with little bits of chorizo and bacon, with some spice thrown in.

EDIT: (cook until minestrone soup has almost totally evaporated)

Use Supercook. Just write down any ingredients you want to use and it will give you many recipes that have those ingredients.

Whenever the wife asks this I simply answer “the fucking cooker!”

Do you have milk? eggs? cheese? beef or chicken or vegetable broth? an onion?

Black bean soup with added chorizo, bacon and greens would be very good. Maybe even potatoes.

Or Mexican colcannon with mashed potatoes, chorizo, bacon and the cooked greens.

Make an olive oil sauce for pasta with pieces of cooked bacon and chorizo and the greens cut up.

Make the soups, and order pizza! Cut some fruit up, too, don’t make it all unhealthy.

Lots of good recipes. Thanks, and keep them coming!

I found some brown rice, so I put that on to boil. I browned the chorizo, added the onion and garlic; added some chopped greens, then added the cooked rice. Seasoned with salt, pepper, turmeric and paprika. Yum!
