Servings:

Makes 10 - 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 5 lb frozen California style veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower mix)
  • about 12 cups water
  • 6 bouillon cubes (enough to make 6 cups broth)
  • Instant mashed potato flakes (enough for 3 cups milk)
  • salt and pepper
  • Montreal Steak Spice (optional)
  • Maggi and Vegeta to season (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Into a large soup pot, place the frozen veggies. Add about 11 cups of hot or boiling water.
  2. Dissolve bouillon cubes in one cup boiling water and add to pot.
  3. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for about 6 - 10 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  4. Using a potato masher, crush some of the veggies to make a creamier soup.
  5. 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)
  6. Season with salt and pepper. 
  7. Want some German flavor? Season with Maggi and Vegeta.
  8. If you like a bit of spice, add Montreal Steak Spice or other spices as desired.
