Before Ms. K. Rona came to town, we were planning on opening a soupatio. But she said hells no, you can’t be sitting around sipping on g.spacho and drinking organic vino.
The people need something to grab and go! And hence the “Soul Pop” was born.
That’s right. Soup by winter and fresh fruit (and boozy) popsicles by summer (we are down to two seasons now.) The Popsicle Shop officially opens June 6!
We, your soup experts over at Toronto Soup Co., are here to make your life (or at least your dinner) just a little be easier and keep you feeling supercharged. It is a fact: our soups are indeed ... supercharged. All of our meat based soups are made with bone broths. Like legit bone broths - not just fake stock.
About our Bone Broth
Bone broth is highly nutritious. There’s a reason why people have been making chicken soup for ages when they aren’t feeling well, and if that chicken soup is a bone broth, it is truly a healing food. Bones are rich in vitamins and nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous. Tissues and bones also contain collagen, which provides the body with amino acids is known to be good for your joints. Bone broth is also a great way to add more protein to your diet and feel more satisfied with a meal without consuming too many calories. Also, you should feel pretty awesome after a bowl of our bone broth because it is super good for your gut too! The gelatin in bone broth contributes to healing the stomach lining and digestive tract. We simmer our beef bone broth for at least 24 hours and the chicken bone broth for 14 (we don't advise cooking it longer than that as it can turn and impact the flavour.)
About our Magic Mineral Vegan Broth
Our vegan and vegetarian soups also receive a lot of love and are also superior to many of the other prepared soups out there. We are dedicated to keeping everything low sodium, we leave the salting to you. All of our veg soups start with our Magic Mineral Vegan Broth.
Although it's true the collagen and gelatin found in bone broth are missing from the vegetarian version, our recipe meets a myriad of nutritional needs and is full of magnesium, potassium and numerous trace minerals. Just like the gelatin in bone broth contributes to healing the stomach lining and digestive tract, there are some great plant-based sources in our recipe that also do this, such as kombu, yams, carrots, and leeks. Vegetable mineral broth is loaded with phytochemicals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and vital minerals found in the vegetables, herbs and spices that work together to help keep you feeling fiiiine.
And yes, sometimes we go with less nutritionally charged delights, like the good ol Mac and Cheese, for example. Cause life and eating are all about balance.
With love from our kitchen to yours,
Sara and The Soupers
We love making soup that is both super tasty and healthy for your body soul. We use less salt than traditional restaurants do and focus on clean products and nutritional balance. Most of our soups are designed to be eaten as a meal, with a grain, a veggie, and protein in each soup.
