Well, it took a while but a certain chill has entered the air and the autumn leaves have been just spectacular. For many people, those are the signs of a coming winter. We have another one in the shop: like clockwork, around this time of year, these beautiful jars from local producer SoupGirl start to disappear from our shelves.
It's not hard to see why. I mean, just look at them! You could just leave them on a shelf or out on the counter and they'd be beautiful decor! But they're also a brilliant idea so you're going to want to use them. Instead of assembling all the ingredients and stocking up on spices that might go for years in a cupboard before the next time you use them, SoupGirl portions all the dry ingredients you need for an assortment of delicious, nutritious, heart-warming soups into one re-usable Mason jar - you just add the liquid ingredients according to the instructions printed on the attached tag. Also on there you'll find full ingredient lists, nutritional information and handy tips for modifying the soups if you so choose. All her soups are vegetarian but you carnivores feel free to add meat!
Flavours include Spicy Coconut Lentil, Curried Cashew, Smoky Split Pea, Italian Rice & Lentil, Caribbean Rice n’ Peas Soup, The Detox, Moroccan Lentil, Za’atar Lentil and a brand new one - Bavarian Barley.
That ought to get you through winter!
