Great Plains Harvest Soup
Updated: Nov 26, 2019
Chef Christopher Koetke, Associate Dean at The School of Culinary Arts of Kendall College in Chicago developed this recipe that uses a bevy of soy ingredients. MicroSoy Super Spuds are instant potato and soy flakes. You can also find them labelled I.M. Healthy Instant Mashed Potatoes. Added at the end, they thicken up the soup beautifully. You can find them in the green section of most grocery stores.
