We used this as a teacher's gift this year, but made a few revisions. I omitted the seasoned salt, turmeric and thyme. Instead, I added 3 tablespoons of Bacos (dried bacon bits) and 2 tablespoons of freeze dried chives. It is excellent!

I made these into gifts for co-workers. The soup is thinner than I expected, but am not familiar in cooking with instant potatoes. It isn't something I would typically cook for myself or my family. I think it would be better if you added some solid ingredients. This is something I would probably drink in place of chicken noodle soup/broth when I am feeling under the weather. Although, I really like the fact it is quick and just need to add water if you were in a rush. Perfect for those times at work when I can't get away and have just a few minutes to get something in my tummy.

Made a great gift!! Mixes up easily & quickly!Ended up making some for myself, as well. I found that 1 1/2 tsp. of seasoning salt was a bit too much, so I cut it back to 1 tsp and it still tasted really good. Next time, I will probably cut it back to 1/2 tsp. For Weight Watcher's, it works out to 3 points/serving.

I found the seasoning a bit different but it was very good ! A great lunch at work. Just add a crusty roll and an apple and you're set for the rest of the work day.

I made this as a gift for my relatives this year and they all loved it! After some experimenting, I found that a few changes helped a lot. I cut waaaay back on the buillion- about 2-3 tsp per batch. I also cut down the seasoning salt- I'd rather let the recipient salt to taste. My biggest tip- once the mix is made, run it through a blender or food processor until it makes a nice even powder. This makes a MUCH smoother soup- less like mashed potatoes, more like soup. It cuts the volume exactly in half, so be sure to change the directions from 1/2 cup mix to 1/4 cup. It fit perfectly in pint jars. I'll use this method again!

I left out the thyme, turmeric, and seasonsing salt but added celery flakes, garlic powder and sea salt. I also tried a variation by adding two tablespoons of cheddar cheese powdered sauce mix....good soup! I made it for a hostess gift and look forward to her trying it.

Not too bad. A great idea for a gift and I even take it to work with me.

I made this soup mix for my MIL, who can't tolerate any milk products, with powdered soy milk. I tested a cupful and discovered that the soy milk is just fine, but the sodium is too high... very salty. Also, when using a half cup of the mix as the directions call for, when it cools even slightly, it is like eating mashed potatoes, not soup. Don't know for a fact but am guessing that the soy milk wouldn't cause that problem... so i suggest cutting WAY back on the seasoned salt and starting out with 1/4 cup mix to make it more like soup. Other than the salt, it has very nice flavor. To solve the sodium problem, I just made a second batch, left out the seasoned salt althogether and mixed the two together. Thanks for a nice recipe that I can send to my widowed MIL who lives alone and doesn't like to cook much... this will give her many nice little meals!
