Instant Cup of Soups

I found these recipes in a cookbook, for making individual
instant soup mix packages. It calls for a mug type coffee cup
that holds 1 1/2 cups liquid---with no metallic decorations, as
they go in the microwave. A gift suggestion is to place the mug
in the center of a basket or flat rattan paper plate holder,
surround with packets of soup, wrap the whole thing with
cellophane and tie with a ribbon. Sounds like a nice gift for
office workers, teachers, college kids, or shut-ins. Have fun!



Instructions for all soup mixes:
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl; Pour into a baby food jar,
or a sandwich bag tied with ribbon, or a ziploc baggie.
Label container with name of soup and directions.



**Several of the recipes call for using Lipton soup mixes; It is
advised that you empty the soup packet into a bowl, stir well to
evenly distribute the seasonings, and then take the measured
amount from this mixture.
