Creamy Potato Soup mix is a great way to get a potassium rich meal into you when you are so tired you can’t face eating. It is easy to mix up, and quite affordable. Carry a packet or two with you in your food bag, as a backup for cold evenings as well. It rehydrates easily in a freezer bag or in your mug.

You can add a couple Tablespoons shelf stable bacon or a 3 ounce packet of smoked salmon to make a hearty dinner. For extra richness add in a packet of olive oil with the water. Season to taste with salt and pepper as desired.


At home mix the ingredients in a large bowl. Divide the soup mix up by 1/2 cup dry portions. Depending on if you will be using freezer bags or a mug to have your soup in, pack in quart freezer bags or sandwich bags.

FBC method:
Add 1 cup near boiling water to the bag and stir till smooth. Let cool a bit.

Mug method:
Add 1 cup boiling water to the dry mix in your mug and stir till smooth. Let cool a bit.

One pot method:
