This came to me as a joke in a sports bar , but it is a good lunch or an afternoon snack . This goes well with grilled cheese sandwiches . The joke is meant for all the unlucky hunters .
In a non stick skillet or a large stock pot sprayed with Pam or any cooking spray add all your vegies and slowly warm and slightly brown. Sprinkle in the salad dressing mix .This will take about 5 to 10 minutes. For all us cheaters out there , 2 bags of mixed frozen vegetables works very well. You will still need the jar of mushrooms. Please be sure your pot can hold about 1 gallon or more of fluid . Now slowly add the water. Next add the soup base . Beef base is great, but vegetable soup base is also good. Slowly bring to a low boil and then simmer. Cover the pot and gently stir as needed for 30 minutes. Place in mugs or bowls or when serving for a group setting , place in a crockpot or chaffing dish . Enjoy this when your are watching your favorite football team playing . Make this up ahead and freeze this and can you take it to the tailgate party .
