This Week’s Menu
Can you believe it’s December already?!! December is busy for most people. It’s the end of the year, kids are wrapping up school, holidays are upon us and with that comes a bit of pressure. Making time to shop for gifts, possibly decorating your home, attending work parties, neighborhood parties and family gatherings. All the while keeping up with your day to day and mass traffic that seems to slow everything down this time of year.
TIME SAVING SOUPS
We’re fairly certain that on most days people agonize about “what to eat” especially if they’re trying to eat healthier. It’s even more difficult when we’ve got so much to do in a day, particularly this time of year when the holidays are upon us. Shopping is difficult and cooking is sometimes impossible. Soups are like secret weapons, so having them in our fridge makes the meal planning dilemma disappear. After school meals were a no-brainer for our kids during the years they had practices and got home later and mid-week evenings continue to be sooooo much smoother if we make it simple with soups and salads. On the weekends, soups serve as the perfect food to stretch into a bigger meal or simply slurp with a sandwich. If any of this feels familiar, we have a pretty amazing selection of soups that offer simple solutions to healthy, quick, easy meals. Getting a few of these will give you a little extra time to get things done during all the holiday madness that we look forward to every year.
SOUP SENSATIONS FOR THE HOLIDAYS
If we could make this menu a stocking stuffer we would! We have four insanely good soups ~ all uniquely different from one another and all perfect for this holiday season. Our Spanish Roasted Tomato Bisque with Artichokes & Herb Pistou can singlehandedly enhance your holiday mood – seriously. It’s warm, it’s red, it’s green, there’s both a vegan and vegetarian version with seriously bold flavors! The Tikka Masala soups will make your toes wiggle. They’re rich, comforting and as an entree, is a serious “holiday date night soup.” It’s just that magical. Two to choose from makes it the go-to soup for the week! Last, but not least is our Ginger Coconut Curry Lentil with coconut kale saute. It’s a hearty, deeply flavorful soup that has remained in our top ten best sellers for over 11 years. It’s THE BEST soup stretcher we have too! Please check out the ideas we have for stretching this soup into additional meals for the week.
THIS IS OUR LAST MENU BEFORE THE HOLIDAY BREAK
This is our last week before the holiday break. We thought it might be helpful to offer soups that are freezer friendly so you have something to grab on a day when you need a little extra time. The soups, as well as the sipping broths are all freezer friendly! For you with kids at home, it’s a longgggg break! Stock up for those crazy days when you’re hunkered in on a cold day.
FEED OUR PEOPLE FUNDRAISER 2022
Feed Our People is our 2022 Soup Fundraiser. In coordination with Clackamas Service Center (CSC), located in SE Portland, we’re putting forth effort to get food to unhoused families and individuals. CSC is an inclusive “one-stop” community center for individuals and families seeking food relief and resources for improved health, dignity and stability. The organization feeds 80 individuals full meals on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday every week. They also provide groceries and clothing, hygiene products and access to showers, medical care and needle exchange as needed. Their warehouse has a substantially stocked grocery inventory that facilitates a delivery program to the front doors of people in need. This warehouse also provides food for many other food pantries, as well as pop-up pantries at schools once a week.
We are looking forward to be helping those in our community and honored to be lending a hand to CSC who contribute efforts every day to those needing food, shelter and medical services. Through donations from our customers, as well as donations from Pepper & Salt Kitchen, we will be providing soups for their dine-in services on several occasions in the weeks to come. Any additional donations raised will go towards their food pantry. We would be so very grateful to our Soupers for considering a donation towards this endeavor of gifting food. There is a tab on our checkout page where you can add a donation to your soup orders. Thank you.
Thank you again for all the Thanksgiving orders and donations to our 2022 fundraiser. So very grateful.

Sipping broths are flavorful, highly beneficial beverages made in the traditional nourishing way our Grandmothers made bone broths. Our broths are simmered for 48 hours with organic vegetables and aromatics. Studies show that the benefits of slow cooking bones are extensive and proven to offer a gamut of benefits that contribute to gut repair, boosting immune function, arthritis, osteoporosis, digestion, reducing high cholesterol, eliminating acid reflux, detoxification, reduction of inflammation, strengthening nails and hair, improving skin appearance and so much more. And while most people report a great boost in energy that could easily replace your daily java, additional benefits lie in the glycine extracted. Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means the broths can greatly help with relaxation and actually help improve sleep.We source our beef from a local rancher who raises very happy, pasture grass-fed and finished animals and chickens that are raised organically ~ both without use of hormones or antibiotics. We offer a selection of flavor enhanced beef, chicken and vegetable sipping broths each week such as citrus miso chicken, ginger turmeric beef, lemon leek chicken, citrus miso vegetable, chipotle lime chicken, lemongrass green tea chicken sipping broth, and of course, traditional chicken and beef. All of these are great immune boosting broths and incredibly enjoyable to sip.
