Frontier Soups Launches Vegetable Soup with Ancient Grains and Kale
Frontier Soups, a producer of all natural gourmet soup mixes, is introducing West Coast Kale and Quinoa Vegetable Soup Mix, a vegetarian soup and certified gluten free soup that gives home cooks a delicious and easy way to incorporate nutrient rich ancient grains and kale into their diets.
The new gluten free kale and quinoa vegetable soup mix gains hunger-satisfying substance from white quinoa and flakes of kale and butternut squash that are freeze dried to preserve nutrition along with canned tomatoes and fresh or frozen butternut squash added by home cooks, said Trisha Anderson, company founder. The mix is filled with vegetables, including onions and carrots along with the kale and squash. Savory seasoning with garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, and a peppercorn blend provide a counterpoint to the sweetness of the squash, Anderson said.
"We formulated this soup in response to consumer requests for more vegetarian soup options and for soup mixes that give them an easy way to incorporate super foods like quinoa and kale into their diets," she said. "The mix has a bounty of vegetables, a very pleasing texture, and is ready after just 30 minutes on the stovetop."
Considered an ancient grain, quinoa is very high in protein and one of only a few plant based foods that are a complete in protein, and it is highest in potassium of all the whole grains, according to the Whole Grains Council. Kale also is a nutritional powerhouse packed with vitamins A, C and K along with minerals like calcium, potassium and iron, according to WebMD.
Frontier Soups soup mixes are designed to provide a shortcut to homemade and can satisfy a wide variety of appetites from hearty to light with American favorites like chicken noodle soup, tortilla soup, corn chowder, and black bean soup. The company offers 28 gluten free soups and 11 vegetarian soup varieties.
