Hello Soup!

Hello #LoyalRoyals

This month we’ve been singing from the Palace rooftops about our range of soups. Today we want to encourage you to use them as the centrepiece of a complete meal, and make them entirely your own by cooking up some delicious accompaniments.

Adding your own signature can be as simple as a drizzle of local olive oil swirled over each serving. Or a grating of lemon zest and some shredded basil leaves. How about stirring through some crème fraîche and topping with crispy bacon bits? Maybe you have some sourdough that’s past it’s prime. Rather than tossing it, turn it into Coriander & Chilli Pesto croutons.

Read on for five recipe ideas to inspire you on your soup-sipping journey this winter.

The best news of all? For every soup sold, our Buy One. Give One campaign will donate one meal to a homeless person or hungry learner (thanks to the lovely people at Ladles of Love).

You can find our soups in the fridges of top SPAR and Wellness Warehouse stores in the Western Cape.

With love

Tomato Soup with the Ultimate Toasted Cheese

Our Pesto Princess Fresh Tomato Soup contains absolutely no preservatives or thickeners and only the juiciest, ripest tomatoes we can find. There’s a dash of white pepper for a little extra kick. We’ve served it with the most impossible-to-refuse, oozy toasted cheese we could imagine. Here’s the recipe for you to try.

Creamy Carrot Soup with Chilli and Coriander Croutons

To celebrate our Pesto Princess Creamy Carrot Soup, we developed a recipe for the best croutons known to mankind. There’s something about the coriander and chilli zing which adds so much to the creamy carrot bowl of goodness.
