Cold Potato-Dill Soup : Instant

I threw this together the other night and it came out pretty good, considering the level of effort. Decent comfort food. Fat-free, if made with skim milk.

Ingredient list with approximate amounts:
  • 1/4 C Potato Flakes (We use "Idaho" brand)
  • 1/4 C Hot Water
  • 1/2 C Milk
  • 2 or 3 ice cubes
Spices shaken in from their bottles. Very rough guess as to amount. Add "to taste":
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Directions (Serves 1):
Fill the electric tea kettle to its minimum amount and turn it on.
Pour the instant mashed potato flakes into the bottom of a deep soup bowl.
Stir in the dill flakes so that it's a nice-looking mixture with the green mixed into the white.
Also stir in the garlic and salt, so that it can all dissolve when you
Add the hot water and stir it until it dissolves and is smoothly mixed in.
Stir in milk until smooth.
At this point, it's not cold enough, so add the 2 or 3 ice cubes and keep stirring until they melt.
Sprinkle some paprika on top.

Nice cold summer soup, with minimum effort. I hope you like it.
