During cold weather, I love a bowl or mug of soup. Sometimes, I get home from work and I’m too tired to make dinner. My husband usually eats a bigger mid-day meal and often wants to skip dinner. Often, I come home from work hungry and find myself scrounging around the kitchen for a quick bite to eat. I can make a mug of this soup in just a couple of minutes. I also take it with me for lunch in a little sandwich bag so I can just fill my mug with hot water and stir in this mix. It’s easy and it tastes so good!
1 ¾ c instant mashed potatoes*
1 ½ c. non-fat dry milk powder
2 T. instant chicken boullion granules
2 t. dry minced onion
1 t. dried parsley
¼ t. pepper
¼ t. dried thyme
1/8 t. turmeric
½ t. seasoning salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well. Store the dry mix in a quart-size jar.
To use, mix ½ cup of the dry mix with 1 cup boiling water in a bowl or mug. Stir and allow to stand for 1 – 2 minutes. The soup will thicken upon standing. Stir and enjoy!
You can make this as a gift and tie a cute tag on the jar with the directions!
*It’s also really good with the loaded mashed potatoes (they have a bacon flavor!)
