January is national soup month. I’m a huge soup eater. I usually eat a bowl every day for lunch. Mostly it’s homemade soup I make in bulk and freeze in individual servings. But every once in a while; when time is of the essence I will purchase a store bought soup. Never anything in a can…just not my thing…but usually the semi fresh soup available at most grocery stores.
I was recently contacted by someone at Kettle Cuisine, a company that’s been around for 25 years, to review some of their soups. After reading on their website how the soups are all prepared with natural fresh ingredient; how their stocks are made from scratch and how all of the vegetables and meats are prepared by hand; I was intrigued.
Frozen in single serve bowls these soups are perfect for my lunches. They come in 10 different flavors ranging from Angus Beef Steak Chili with Beans to New England Clam Chowder to Organic Mushroom and Potato. So far I’ve sampled the Chicken Soup with rice Noodles and the Tomato Soup with Garden Vegetables and have loved them both. Loaded with fresh veggies these 10oz single serving soups are very filling.
Although, I will continue to make my own soup Kettle Cuisine soups are a great alternative. They are available in the freezer section of most Whole Food Stores and I would highly recommend trying them.
