Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

15 minutes

Total Time

30 minutes


Makes 10 - 12 servings


  • 5 pounds frozen California style veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower mix)
  • about 6 cups hot water
  • about 6 cups hearty beef or pork broth
  • instant mashed potato flakes (enough for 3 cups milk)
  • 2 - 4 cooked sausages
  • salt and pepper
  • Montreal Steak Spice (optional)


  1. Into a large soup pot, place the frozen veggies. Add hot water and broth.
  2. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for about 6 to 10 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  3. Using a potato masher, crush some of the veggies to make a creamier soup.
  4. Stir in sufficient instant mashed potato flakes to make the soup as creamy and thick as you wish. (I used one package that normally is mixed with 3 cups liquid)
  5. Slice cooked sausages and add to soup. 
  6. Season with Montreal Steak Spice, salt and pepper.


  • Use any leftover meat to add to the soup instead of the cooked sausages. Ham would also be nice. 
  • The thicker you make it with the instant potato flakes, the heartier the soup will be.  
  • If you don't have any broth, use beef bouillon cubes, enough to make up 6 cups of broth.
  • Use a different frozen veggie mix for a different soup. Be creative! Make your own masterpiece! Create your own easy vegetable soup recipes.
