I had the same problem today so after staring at the fridge I did this;
I used half a tin of coconut milk, (leftover) some garlic, ginger, a red chili and an onion blended up, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, vinegar (lime juice would be better) and a bit of sugar, added to some mixed veg and cooked chicken I called it a Thai style curry and served it with sticky rice. dinner in 20minutes 2 pans and nearly no mess.
Exploding soup? Is that like split peas cooked in a pressure cooker? And the little weight thing quits rocking, so he takes it off to see and sprays the ceiling with this green like stucco ...But I am having home canned tomato sauce, 2016 vintage, and pasta...
That's why in the fall I can up a ton of tomato soup and chili. 50+ jars each. That way if I'm ever in need of a quick meal I just warm up a pint of soup. My back-up is organic mac and cheese
