Creamy Potato Soup Mix

Creamy Potato Soup Mix
2 cups instant mashed potatoes (potato flakes)
1 1/2 cups nonfat dry milk
2 TB instant chicken bouillon
2 tsp dried minced onion
1 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried whole thyme
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
1/8 tsp turmeric*

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing until completely blended.  Store in airtight container.
*Note: if you don't have turmeric, omit it.  It gives a little flavor and color to the soup but it is not necessary.

To prepare soup:
Place 1/2 cup soup mix in a soup bowl or mug.  Add 1 cup boiling water slowly while mixing with a whisk or fork and stir until smooth.  Let soup sit 1-2 minutes to thicken slightly.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add shredded cheddar cheese or parmesan cheese if desired.

Makes approximately 6 bowls of soup.

  1. Are potato flakes the same as instant mashed potatoes? If not, could you substitute potato flakes in this recipe? Thanks.

  2. Yes! Instant mashed potatoes are potato flakes. I will change that on the post, so it is not confusing. Thanks!
