What does one do with a plethora of fresh green onion tops ? Having no patience for blanching and freezing, I decided to chop them and dehydrate them in the lowest temperature in my oven for about 5 hours. Now that I have green powder, I wanted to make a delicious, wholesome soup mix, the Instant kind, that can be cooked by just pouring hot water… When it comes to wholesome food, nothing like a combination of rice and dal ( carbohydrates and protein).. So here goes!!!
Ingredients:Rice,Moong Dal,Cumin,Black pepper,Onion powder & Tumeric

Blend Soup Mix with Boiling hot water.... Ready to drink!!!
