This recipe that follows on from another (pork belly with lentils) is very approximate, so do adapt it to suit what leftovers you have.

If you have a little pork belly left, you can add small dice to the soup.

Be careful when seasoning - the stock is often quite salty already, so do check before adding anything.


Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
