Soup: The Ideal Food
Soups have been a vital part of nearly every food culture since humans first learned to harness fire and craft cooking vessels. And why not? Soups provide a unique combination of warmth, hydration and the ability to capture the nutrients and flavors of mixed ingredients—all in one bowl. No wonder we love soup.
But not just any soup. We wanted to create delicious soups that are good in every way. So our wholesome, meat- and dairy-free soups are made only with certified organic, non-GMO ingredients, using flavorful recipes created by our favorite chefs. From the exceptional energy provided by steamed-then-roasted whole grain in our Tsampa Soup to the plant-based protein, iron and fiber of legumes in our Red Bean Chili, Black Bean Soup, and Green Lentil Soup, we’re excited to share foods that are good for both the human body and our planet. Add in the convenience of easy storage, portability and fast cook times, and you have the perfect solution for satisfying meals at home, on the trail, or in camp. To us, that’s ideal food.

Simply put, if we’re going to eat lower on the food chain, legumes are an ideal source of the protein we need. They’re also high in iron, fiber and other important nutrients. But there’s still another reason to add more pulses to your diet: They taste delicious.
