Soup To Go

Each week we offer a refrigerated, ready-to-heat soup for purchase by the pint or quart. Orders are taken through Friday of the week preceding, and soups are available for pickup the following Tuesday.

Quarts are $10, pints are $6, and come to you in a classic Mason jar that you can keep or return. Always vegan & gluten-free. Here’s what we’re cooking up for June:

June 5: Thai Red Curry, that spicy, sweet-potato-based, coconut-milk-spiked bowl of lusciousness. Have you tried it over Thai rice noodles? Order by Friday, June 1.

June 12: Italian Vegetable. A complete meal in a jar. Like a minestrone with no pasta, just all the veggies and all the flavor. Order by June 8.

June 19: Egyptian Red Lentil. This is the pale golden potato-based, curry-spiced soup you can enjoy on its own or over rice. Order by June 15

June 26: Zuppa Toscana. Thin-sliced potatoes, shredded deep green kale, a creamy broth. Summer soup doesn’t get much better than this. Order by June 22
