Ultimate veggie soup mix in a jar is really awesome or I could not call it the Ultimate Veggie Soup. What makes it so awesome is the secret ingredient – that will not be secret for long. It is the dried mushrooms. They really add an extra element of taste and blend all the flavors together. The soup mix makes a great pantry staple or as a gift in a jar to give. I love the way the layers look because they are so colorful and pretty. Hearty soups are wonderful on a cold day. You can also add meat to the soup and make it a meal.
