Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard was introduced to tsampa by Sherpa friends in Nepal in the 1970s. He quickly discovered how energized he felt after eating this highly nutritious mountain-barley staple. The experience inspired our own Organic Tsampa Soup, a mix of whole sprouted and roasted barley grains, plus toasted buckwheat, vegetables and seasonings. Tsampa Soup is delicious on its own and makes a great base for creative toppings, too.

Product Details + Sourcing
- Tsampa, a mainstay of Himalayan cuIture and cooking, is mountain barley that is first sprouted, then roasted and pounded into flour. Often it’s mixed with tea and rolled into balls for a nutritionally dense, portable snack that has sustained Sherpas on their climbs for generations.
- The non-GMO barley in our Organic Tsampa Soup is responsibly sourced from the plains of Saskatchewan, Canada. Then it’s sprouted and roasted in Montana following the traditional Himalayan method.
- Our buckwheat for Tsampa Soup also comes from Saskatchewan. This highly useful plant builds healthy soil, prevents erosion and attracts beneficial insects and pollinators.

How to Make
- As a hot soup: Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Stir in Organic Tsampa Soup. Return to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, 10 minutes. To save fuel on the trail, boil soup 1 minute, remove from heat, cover, and let sit 9 minutes.
- Yvon Chouinard’s favorite topping: Extra-virgin olive oil, Provisions Wild Sockeye Salmon, and grated parmesan cheese.
