Our Soup of the Week is “survival soup”. It is a very easy soup to make if you have the ingredients on hand. This one can be made if the power is out, you are camping, you are busy running the kids to and from football practice all day, or you just don’t feel like cooking. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s still a healthy soup.
Ingredients we used:
Provident Pantry Freeze Dried Super Sweet Corn
salt and pepper to taste
Fill large pot about halfway full and add about 2 cups chicken, turkey, or some of both, about 2 cups or so of corn, 2 cans of drained peas, 2 cans of mushrooms and bring to a boil. This will also re-hydrate your freeze dried meats and vegetables so you might need to add more water. When the water comes to a rolling boil, add noodles and cook as per manufactures directions (in our case, we went about 8 minutes). Add any salt or pepper to taste. (This will feed a large family with leftovers so adjust your amounts accordingly)
Once the noodles are cooked, serve up and eat a steamy bowl of soup that is still healthy, hearty, and very quick to make.
Again, this is great if the power is out as long as you can heat water (which you can do outside using an Eco-Zoom stove like I showed here. It’s quick and easy for those times when life is running you ragged but you still need a quick meal for the family. Or, even if you are not feeling well and still need to get dinner on the table. Honestly, I think it took longer for us to photograph everything then it took for us to cook the meal. Enjoy.
Oh, here’s a quick look at the freeze dried corn and chicken before adding to the soup:

- warm and good on a cold and chilly night
- easy to make
