Dehydrated soup mix beloved of beatniks, Ivy League types, and Baby Boomers, who remember it as a gourmet treat during childhood. When prepared as directed, it's watery, vegan, and has almost no calories. When prepared properly, it's still vegan, and low-calorie, but has enough sodium to cause immediate kidney failure. Good though. Gets its mystique through having been once prepared by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, makers of LSD.
Best mixed with 1 pint of sour cream to make dip, especially with equally salty Triscuits.
