Soup is an excellent gift in the wintertime, and this mix turns instant mashed potatoes into a creamy, warming meal. Add cheese powder for a cheesy soup.
2 cups instant mashed potatoes

2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
2 teaspoons dried chopped onion
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 cup cheese powder (optional)
1. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients and package into jars. Or divide ingredients evenly and layer into jars for an attractive presentation.
2. For gifting, prepare a label or tag with preparation instructions: "To prepare 1 serving of soup, add 1/2 cup soup mix to 1 cup boiling water. Let stand 2 minutes for water to be absorbed, then stir well and add toppings as desired, such as bacon bits, sliced green onion and shredded cheese."
