The company was started in 1986 by Jerry Shafir, a chef (and a dad) who wanted to create healthy, delicious soups for those who can't eat gluten (like his daughter, Kate) to enjoy. I can (and do) eat (plenty of) gluten, but I thought I was excited to try the soups anyway, since I had the vegetarian 3 bean chili some time ago and enjoyed it.
And I always enjoy the ingredients, which don't include anything artifical, don't include any dairy (at least for these varieties), don't contain any MSG, and do have a whopping load of veggies and fiber.
Short and simple, the way I look it. They come in bowls (you're supposed to leave on the top, so you don't splatter your microwave - sorry, Mom).
Nuke it for about four minutes, ignore the mess, and then there's just one word left: Yum.
How on earth do the veggies taste so fresh and delicious? There aren't any preservatives, so I suppose it must be something to do with the freezing process, hmm....
Whatever. MMMMMMMM is more like it! The Tomato Soup with Garden Vegetables is sweet and flavorful, not too salty and anything but bland. I tend not to like soup, but I loved this! My mom and little sister loved it, too.
The Roasted Vegetable Soup was very good, too - it was my little sister's favorite (she said that we have to go the store for more), with its creamy potatoes and flavorful leek, but the Tomato Soup with Garden Vegetables is my new favorite.
Have you ever tried Kettle Cuisine Soup?
Do you know anyone called Katy?
