My friend Katie gave us an awesome anniversary / Christmas gift this past year: a picnic bag with a bottle of wine, crackers, and some home made instant soup mixes in mason jars.
We've only had one of the soups and it was so good I asked for the recipe. And now I'm going to share it with you so you can warm yourself during this blizzard. brrrrrrr!
Home Made Instant Potato Soup
2 C instant mashed potato
1 1/2 C dry milk powder
2 T instant chicken bouillon
2 t dried minced onion
1 t dried parsley
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t dried thyme
1/8 t turmeric
1 1/2 t seasoning salt
Combine all ingredients. Fits in 1 qt jar.
Use 1/2 C mix with 1 C boiling water.
When we made it I added a heaping 1/2 C of the mix so it was a little thicker. I also added some unpeeled, roughly cut red potatoes and some carrots. Sausage, parsnips, celery, onion, and cheese all taste yummy with it, too.
