With the chilly weather upon us, we can imagine that all you want to do is get cozy underneath a blanket and have a bowl of soup! But more often than not, making soup can be a time-consuming task that some of us simply may not have the time or energy for. Lucky for you, Thistle offers four rotating types of delicious and hearty soups each season for you to enjoy. You might be wondering, what makes Thistle soups amazing? And what even makes them worth the try? Well...

They’re plant-based and nutrient-dense! Each 12oz serving of soup is packed with a variety of seasonal vegetables, whole grains, protein-packed legumes, herbs and spices. With an average of 150-250 calories and at least 10g of protein and 10g of fiber, our soups are the perfect warming snack to add to your daily routine. As with all of our products, our soups are also gluten and dairy-free.

They help decrease food waste! The amount of food wasted in today’s world is a harsh reality. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), about 1.3 billion tonnes of food produced for human consumption is wasted each year. In an effort to minimize food waste at Thistle, we slightly alter each week’s soup recipes to incorporate surplus meal ingredients that would have otherwise been left unused. By repurposing surplus ingredients this way, we’ve been able to reduce our weekly food waste by at least 10%. 

They’re incredibly convenient! Do you ever find yourself craving something warming, not too filling, and requires little effort to prep? You can conveniently solve this dilemma by having our ready-to-eat soups. Get them as a one-time add-on to a delivery or even better, make them a part of your weekly meal plan—we’ll take care of delivering them right to your door. To enjoy, all you need to do is defrost (if frozen) and heat it up! You’ll have a flavorful and warm bowl of soup in no time. 

Lastly, you will never get tired of them! At Thistle, we love using produce at their peak to not only help support local farmers who follow sustainable practices, but also to provide you with the freshness and variety you deserve. By customizing our soup recipes each season based on what’s available, we are able to provide you with the variety to keep your palate entertained throughout the year!
