How long will my soups stay fresh? Should I refrigerate or freeze them? 

You can keep our soup unopened in the refrigerator for up to 30 days and in the freezer for up to one year. If opened, you can keep in the refrigerator for up to five days.


Are your soups gluten free? 

Seven out of eight are! Our Tuscan Bean & Mushroom is the only soup that is not gluten free.

Yes, but we don’t believe in labels. However you choose to eat, everyone can benefit from more plants in their diet. 


Do you use organic ingredients? 

We always strive to source organically from our trusted farmers and suppliers. While our products contain organic ingredients, that are not certified organic. 


What’s so special about your soups? 

Our soups are rooted in real, clean ingredients that have been responsibly sourced and specially crafted by a four-time James Beard Award winning chef. They are nutritious, delicious and do good by helping to put fruits and vegetables on the tables of low-income families.

 

How To Use


How do I defrost my soup? 

The best way is to remove your soup from the freezer and place it in the refrigerator overnight. But if you can’t wait that long to enjoy your soup, we understand, and recommend leaving your soup in the sealed bag and putting it in a bowl or sink of hot water until it’s defrosted enough to break apart into pieces. Then, transfer the soup from the bag into a microwave-safe container and defrost in the microwave for 5 to 7 minutes.  


How do I cook my soup? 

For best results, we recommend cooking on a stovetop, but understand that sometimes there just isn’t enough time.  

STOVETOP: Cut a corner of the bag with scissors and pour product into a heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until hot (165°F). Do not boil. 

MICROWAVE: Cut a corner of the bag with scissors and pour product into a microwave-safe container. Cover loosely with microwavable plastic wrap or paper towel. Heat on high for about 1 to 2 minutes (for an 8oz serving), stirring at least once halfway through. Use CAUTION when removing from the microwave as the product and container will be VERY hot.

 

Miscellaneous


What are your boxes made of?

Can I recycle the boxes?

You can break them down and include them with your curbside recycling. Or get creative and use them to build a fort or the ultimate robot costume. For your kids, of course. 


What about the insulation? 

Yes, that can also be included with your curbside recycling.
