About Us

Comforting & nourishing healthy vegetable soup loaded with wild rice, mushrooms and garlic perfect for a cozy winter meal. An herb infused base simmered to perfection to create the perfect blend of savory and creaminess.

Nothing beats enjoying a cozy hearty soup on a cold winter day. Sometimes you just need a break from indulging and what a better way to do that than with a healthy soup. This soup is loaded with nutrition, an insane amount of vegetables, fiber & antioxidants.

This recipe is so filling, it’s so easy to make and totally customizable. Feel free to make this plant-based and vegan by skipping the milk cream sauce and substituting with coconut milk or coconut cream.

Soups are so forgiving, you can basically throw in a ton of vegetables, even the sad looking ones at the back of your produce drawer to create a delicious bowl of goodness. Soup is almost foolproof… you really can’t mess it up. This is such a great way to use up your leftovers and the possibilities are endless.

We hope you enjoyed this soup as much as we did!
