Hurricane Sandy Chick'n Vegetable Soup

When I was without power during Hurricane Sandy, I was able to boil water and had quite an assortment of dehydrated vegetables on hand so I made soup.  This soup was so good I am still making it regularly even though power has been restored. 

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 Not-Chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 handful dehydrated onion
  • 1 handful dehydrated celery
  • 1 handful dehydrated broccoli
  • 1 handful dehydrated zucchini
  • 1 handful dehydrated mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup orzo or small pasta
  • 1 cup Butler Soy Curls
  • Combine water, bouillon and deydrated vegetables in pot, bring to boil and simmer 15-20 minutes
  • Add orzo and soy curls and simmer 10 - 15 minutes longer
I have 1/2 cup portions of diced tomatoes in the freezer but did not want to open the freezer while there was no power.  I now add the tomatoes in when the soup is finished cooking.  This cools the soup down faster and gives it even more flavor.
