Introducing Two New Soup Mixes

Both of our new soup mixes are 25% off through April.

The last few weeks in Portland have been fairly spectacular, weather-wise. As the date to launch our new soup mixes drew closer, I started to worry that the weather might be too nice for soup. Of course many of you are still in the throes of winter, but some of us have been enjoying a beautiful spring. This week, however, has proved to be as wet as it comes and really reminds us why Oregon is so green. A hot bowl of soup sounds pretty good today.

For years our customers have loved our 13 Bean and Vegi soup mixes. They’re simple, with no seasoning added, and full of carefully selected ingredients to create soups that are versatile and hearty. After receiving many requests from our customers to offer a wider variety of soup mixes, we’re happy to bring two new blends to you—Bountiful Black Bean Soup and Whole Grains and Beans Soup.

Bountiful Black Bean soup combines black turtle beans, black-eyed peas, navy beans and pearl barley to create a beautiful blend that works well as a simple black bean soup or can be dressed up with roasted vegetables and spicy sausage. We leave the seasoning up to you, but have included a delicious recipe on the package for inspiration.

Whole Grains and Beans soup is just as full of whole grain goodness as it sounds. We’ve  combined red beans, red lentils, pinto beans and brown lentils with our Grandé Whole Grains blend to bring you the heartiness of a bean soup with a variety of grains including Kamut® wheat, oat groats, buckwheat and many others.

Both soups take approximately 1-1/2 hours to cook from dried beans into a delicious soup perfect for a cool evening. Serve with our Irish Soda Bread for a meal that is sure to please. Both soups are 25% off through the month of April.

While we have had been enjoying an unseasonably warm spring as well, a bowl of that black bean soup would really hit the spot right now! 🙂

Took your word on my first pkg of soup mix I found at Kroger that said see website for recipes. Can’t find anything that uses Vegi soup Mix. I want to add chicken. What kind? How to prepare? How long to cook?


We have a couple of great recipes using that soup mix, although I’m not sure if any use chicken. You could try this one: Vegetable Lentil Soup: or this Turkey Vegetable Soup and sub shredded cooked chicken in place of the turkey:
