CoL - Verdant Mushroom Soup group serving bug

After the first toddler in the new game I started for Cottage Living became a child, I had this great idea to keep Verdant Mushroom Soup around so she could have it for breakfast before heading to school. Such a nice boost to the focus mood.

Lo, it was not meant to be. It seems group servings of Verdant Mushroom soup are bugged and immediately vanish from sight once cooking is complete. Though sims will still grab it autonomously if left to their own devices, it cannot be seen nor can it be grabbed or clicked on to get it into the refrigerator.
Sad day for Abby (the child), because she was really looking forward to eating Verdant mushroom soup for breakfast on weekdays for the rest of her childhood...

I confirmed that this is a game bug, and not mod related, and put in my confirmation on the official EA bug report thread for it. I'm posting here because I thought maybe, just maybe, someone here knows of a modder that has made a temporary fix for it. Given the sparsity of search results when I googled the problem, I'm not counting on it though. It seems either the bug is not effecting many of us....or that most people just do not appreciate a good Verdant Mushroom Soup.

    I've yet to have my Sims make that one. But I have to say the Col made me think of Colonel. Colonel Verdant soup? is how my poor brain deciphered your title. LOL Pay no attention to that old lady behind the screen …

    @GalacticGal, haha, sorry for messing with your brain.

    I still have no solution for this problem, unfortunately. I even mucked around in Sims 4 Studio to see if I could do a fix for it but for the life of me I couldn't figure out why it's glitched in the first place. Looking at the assets, I don't see where it is setup any differently than the other mushroom soups, all of which work fine with group servings.

    No worries. Can you not make it just in family size? Must it be for groups, only?

    For Verdant Mushroom soup I can only make single servings, both group and family size show a white square with a red X for the image on the cook menu and when I do try to cook them anyway, they are invisible with no way to move them to the refrigerator or tell sims to take a serving. Yet they are there, because until they spoil sims will autonomously grab a plate.

    How does a sim learn to make Verdant Mushroom soup?

    Edit: Just found a sim who is able to cook it.

    Can you make a group or family serving or are you, like me, stuck only with single servings?

    I am able to make group and family servings of Verdant Mushroom soup. I do have SrslySims Cooking Overhaul in my game, so don't know if that keeps the bug from happening.

    I take it back, it is bugged for me too, I can make it, but it turns invisible as soon as the Sim pours it from the pot into a bowl.

    The group serving is invisible in my game.

    Seems it's a more prevalent bug then the number of confirmations for it over on the official bug report seem to indicate. Thank you both @Gagea and @Sara1010P for letting me know you experience the same issues.

    Although Verdant Mushroom soup group meals are invisible, I just had my hungry kid go to the counter where the meal had 'vanished' and he took a serving!

    LOL, yep, I have that happen too. Just sucks you can't put them in the refrigerator nor tell them when to eat it manually!

    Edit to add: Also, you can send it to household inventory if you move the counter where it sits (invisibly) to household inventory. The soup will go with the counter... Don't do it though, because once it is in household inventory it's stuck there. You can't grab it and move it back out nor delete/sell it.
