Dry Vegetable Soup Mix

I have been scouring the internet looking for a recipe to make dry vegetable soup mix like Knorr’s, but keep coming up blank. At $2+ a pop for one of their packets, I’d much rather make my own! Anyone have a recipe?

i’ve made some = didn’t use a recipe, but started with bullion, crumbled ramen noodles [i tossed their flavoring but you could use it if you want], dried onions, instant mashed potatoes, some dehydrated veggies i bought from Frontier Herbs, all sorts of spices and just winged it by tasting – you could dry your own veggies if you have a dehydrator [or use your oven]and spice them to suit – then put it in a cup, pour boiling water on it, cover it [those cutsey cups w/the top/saucer thingies work real well for this] and let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes and ta daa, you have soup – something i haven’t tried but i think would work well would be drying riced baked potatoes, leftover cooked veggies -you wouldn’t want to use the ones cooked too much – but i think you could do peas, corn, broccoli, beans, diced beets, shredded carrots etc etc etc – let me know how it works for you!

I searched allrecipes website for “Soup mix” and they have quite a few. This one looked really good.

I make spinach dip using the veggie soup packet. I buy the Lipton brand which contains 2 packages for the same price as just one.
