Country Vegetable Soup & Stew Dried Packet Mixtures

This week I was on the lookout for something new in the supermarket and so I stopped to look in the dried pulses section. I don't tend to use dried pulses too much but wanted try some different products to what I normally buy. Perhaps a little late to the party, but I happened across this Country Soup Mixture in the supermarket and thought that it looked like a great product for vegetarians and vegans. You have to soak the mixture overnight in cold water and then boil the mixture for 10 minutes before simmering.  I am wondering if you could pop it in the slow cooker after boiling also.

On the internet I also saw that there is a dried Country Vegetable Mixture made by Sainsburys. On facebook, there is a recipe for Country Vegetable Stew using the packet mixture, peppers and sausages which could be substituted for Quorn Vegetarian Sausages.

Sainsbury's Country Vegetable Mixture (500g)

I am going to give both of these recipes a go as they contain lots of really healthy ingredients and will be something new to put on the dinner table for the family!. Have you used these packet mixes? What did you think of them?

Disclaimer - I found these in the supermarket and paid for them


  1. I think these are great and I've got a packet in the cupboard, just haven't got round to using it yet.

  2. They are aren't they - thanks for stopping by!

    I have been using Country Vegetable mix for ages and find it very easy to use in a lot of recipes. I am so sad that this has been taken off. I do not want a soup mixture.
