When the stock comes to the boil, blend in mashed potatoes, reduce heat to low, add reserved potato cubes, cover, and simmer.

Noodles and Bean Sprouts: Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Blanch bean sprouts (2 or 3 minutes) and divide among 4 wide soup bowls. Cook noodles according to type used, and divide among bowls. Stir gravy, adding warm stock or water if needed to thin, and quickly ladle over hot sprouts and noodles. Serve with garnishes to add as desired.
