egg drop potato soup

2016-11-11

This is depression era cooking, making the most with very little.

Speaking of extreme recycling, now you no longer have an excuse to throw away that potato water. :-) You can do the same with pasta or rice water. Same thing, different flavor.

  • up to 1 medium boiled potato
