I wanted to do a soup-in-a-jar mix for colleagues and less-close friends, and I'm glad I tried this before I just "wrapped" it. The original recipe is gelatinous and downright gross. I tweaked it a bit, and it was delicious the second time around. I omitted rice (since that's what made it so sticky) while keeping the same water amount, doubled the garlic powder, used cumin instead of sage, and added 1/4 cup chicken stock powder (would have preferred beef but grocery was out). I also sauteed the onion in olive oil before adding lentils/barley/peas. So good. The changes are easy enough to put in instructions, so I'll give out my tweaked version.
