A Soup-er Start To The Year: Announcing our Vegan Hot Soups

As the winter weather continues to freeze us to our bones, we’re cooking up ways to heat us up and keep us nourished. Over the past four months we’ve been working with our friends at Food Benders to develop vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free soups that will keep us extra toasty during these never-ending “extreme cold warnings.”  Take a look below to discover what we’ve come up with.

Soup no.1: Winter White 


Parsnip, white bean, thyme, spanish onion, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, maple syrup, clove, sea salt

Garnished with a parsley infusion (olive oil, parsley, sea salt) and spice roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds – pepitas, olive oil, sea salt, cinnamon, cardamom, clove)

Tasting Notes 

  • Cozy + smooth; very lightly spiced; naturally sweet from parsnip + a touch of maple
  • Parsley Infusion adds a touch of freshness + the spiced seeds add an awesome crunch!

Why It’s Good For You: 

  • Source of protein (more filling)
  • Cloves + thyme are great for immunity (naturally anti-microbial)
  • Parsley Infusion brings the raw alkalizing greens; spiced seeds add another warming + immune boosting element! 



Soup no.2: Hot Detox


Team greens (kale, spinach, collards, callaloo), lemon juice, olive oil, spanish onion, turmeric, garlic, jalapeno, allspice, black pepper, sea salt

Garnished with sunflower romesco sauce (roasted red peppers, toasted sunflower seeds, olive oil, rice wine vinegar, smoked paprika, sea salt, cayenne). 

Tasting Notes 

  • Zesty; a touch of bright floral jalapeno heat (not very spicy at all)
  • A touch aromatic from allspice and turmeric
  • Sunflower Romesco is smoky and a touch sweet and a perfect counterpoint to this citrus-kissed soup!

Why It’s Good For You: 

  • Great for being sick (turmeric increases immunity + jalapeno is warming and gets your system moving!)
  • Full of greens, – this is very alkalizing (think Third Base in soup form!)


Curious? All soups are available for samples! At this time, they’re ready for you at our Yorkville Village location only, with plans to launch to King Street over the next few weeks, and at Bayview Village when our permanent space is up and ready.

Wishing you a soup-er 2018!
