3 Ways to Elevate Your Soup Season
This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks, The Rustik Oven, and Gardein.
It snowed a few days ago here – not enough to stick but enough to say winter is coming. Which means…
It’s SOUP SEASON! And soup season calls for ultimate comfort foods, so I’m sharing 3 ways to up your soup season game.
Classic Soup, But Plant-Powered
First, let’s talk soup. I love a good homemade soup, but sometimes I just need quick, easy, and
cozy dinner. Gardein has a line of plant-based soups that feature the best classic flavors, like
Plant-Based Chick’n Noodl’ and Plant-Based Chick’n & Wild Rice.
One can of Plant-Based Chick’n Noodl’ has 13 grams of protein and is chock full of plant-based
chick’n, noodl’s and veggies. Plus, it has no dairy or egg ingredients, if that’s important to you! I
found my soup at my local Meijer, along with some delicious bread bowls for serving.
Keep It Simple, But Elevated: Soup in a Bread Bowl
Bread bowls are the easiest, but most delicious way to elevate your soup presentation. These sourdough bread bowls from The Rustik Oven are so soft, have no artificial flavors or colors, and they are huge! They’re baked in a traditional European style baking process and are long-lasting, so you know they’ll be good when you’re ready to eat them.
To serve them, all you have to do is cut a round hole in the top, pull out the cap, and bake in the oven for about 8 minutes to heat. While they’re baking, heat your soup on the stove, and when they’re both done, pour the soup into the bread bowl and serve with the cap for dipping!
Make A Bread Bowl Soup Bar
If you want to serve a group, or just have an extra fun dinner night with the family, make a soup bar!
- Heat up 2 different kinds of soup (I recommend the Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n Noodl’ and Plant-Based Chick’n & Wild Rice), so everyone can have their choice.
- Bake a bread bowl from The Rustik Oven for each person. Brush the cut inside with olive oil for an extra flavor boost.
- Lay out bowls with fun toppings, like cheese, oyster crackers, sour cream, croutons, cilantro, crumbled plant-based bacon, roasted pumpkin seeds, etc so everyone can make their own creation.
A soup bar is so easy, but kids will get a kick out of the chance to make their own choices and create their own soup.
When you head to Meijer for your next shopping trip, add some Gardein soups, sourdough bread bowls from The Rustik Oven and soup toppings to your grocery list!
