Maggot and beetle soup....anyone?

I have shared before about my wasteful ways that I have been addressing over the last year. I have made it a habit to use up left overs in different ways in an effort to be more frugal and to throw away less.

Today I had 2 cups of black beans that were left from a previous meal and about 3 cups of brown rice. These were transformed into a delicious Mexican soup with onion, cumin, chilli and veggie stock.

While my children said it looked like beetle and maggot soup (inspired by the movie Flushed Away) we all enjoyed it with fresh avo and coriander.

I also had one packet of tortillas which I turned into quesadillas to go with the meal...yummy winter food.
