Homemade Dried Soup Mix Recipes?

I'm putting together my earthquake kit, and instead of using store bought (and sometimes expensive!) canned goods, like soup or chili, I want to make dried mixes, that can be made with hot or boiling water.


I'm thinking of a dried tomato and herb pasta sauce or soup, or a potato and leek or vegetable soup -- even a dried chili mix, using dried, already cooked, black or pinto bean chili. Any recipes?

I guess you have a generator ready to boil the water for your soup. Usually the electric and water are out for days if it is a bad earthquake.

Elizabeth, thanks for your comment, but I'm way ahead of you. I will pack either a sterno stove or make a hobo stove, a ;few gallons of bottled water, and some dried cat food for the other household member.


There can be up to a week or even two, without power in some areas (i.e., the San Fernando Valley, CA, after the Jan '94 quake), but I'm really hoping it won't come to that.

I do have some choices...canned soup, canned meat, pasta, with dried or canned vegetables which will make a perfectly good soup. I also have some cup'o'soup...but wouldn't consider it healthy enough to survive on for long.
