12 Ways to Love Soup More

Hello #LoyalRoyals

A massive thank you to everyone who has supported our soup range this winter. As you know, for every soup sold, we donate a hot nourishing meal via the incredible Ladles of Love to those who find themselves hungry, cold and living on the streets.

We want to donate as much as we possibly can to this cause that is very close to all of our hearts, so we thought we would share a donation update with you so that you can help us drive this number UP UP UP.

*DONATION UPDATE* We are currently sitting at a donation of R38,000!

WOW. Thank you all.

Please continue to support us and to share the love for our soup range (you can find it in your nearest SPAR or Wellness Warehouse in the Western Cape).

Need more reasons to love soup more? Here are 12 🙂

Stay warm out there

1. Plant-Powered Pasta Bake

Use our Pesto Princess Fresh Tomato Soup as a base (and rest easy knowing it’s 100% plant-based, with no preservatives, thickeners or colourants), and you’ll be serving up this piping hot Plant-Powered Pasta Bake in under an hour.

2. Zucchini Fritters with Sweet Potato Soup

Have you tried our brand new soup yet? It’s a Sweet Potato Soup!

She’s elegant and softly spoken (making her a great weeknight supper option for the whole family) yet she pairs perfectly with finely sliced red chillies and a handful of coriander if you feel like hotting things up. Try her with these delicious Zucchini Fritters.

3. Mozzarella in Carrozza

What could be a better accompaniment to our Fresh Tomato Soup than the Italian culinary wonder that is Mozzarella in Carrozza? French toast marries grilled cheese… in this case, grilled, oozy buffalo mozzarella.

4. Leek Frittata

May this recipe for a simple leek frittata served with our very own Creamy Carrot Soup rescue you on a day when you’re too busy to cook, or just low on dinner inspiration. Make soup part of your weekly meal plan and stash a few sachets in the freezer for that rainy day! #spruceyoursoup

5. Legendary Zwiebelkuchen

Ever tried the legend that is Zwiebelkuchen? If not, you’re in for a treat. It’s a traditional ‘onion cake’, which we topped with bacon bits and served with our Pesto Princess Pea & Pesto Soup.

6. Crispy Harissa Chickpeas

These crispy Harissa chickpeas make the perfect accompaniment to our Red Lentil Soup. It’s gluten-free, vegan and a healthy meal all in one bowl!

7. Cheese Straws with Sundried Tomato Pesto

The possibilities are endless when it comes to putting your own spin on our soups. These cheese straws are laced with pesto and real Parmesan and make the ultimate accompaniment to our tasty, nourishing tomato soup.


8. 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.


9. 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. We’ve served it with the most impossible-to-refuse, oozy toasted cheese we could imagine. Here’s the recipe for you to try.


10. Pull-apart Bread

This recipe for pull-apart bread, served with our wholesome Pesto Princess Red Lentil Soup is perfect for any occasion. It’s ideal for sharing and a great excuse to get everyone around the table!


11. Garlic Bread

We love the thought of nourishing our bodies and our families with good, wholesome ingredients. Here is a recipe for a ridiculously easy garlic bread served with our Pesto Princess Pea & Pesto Soup.


12. Loaded Tortilla Triangles

When deciding which flavours to add to our range, we turned to our customers, expecting some weird and wonderful soup suggestions to come our way! Instead, requests poured in over and over again for the all-time favourite: butternut soup. Serve it with our loaded tortilla triangles, fresh guacamole and you’ve got a meal fit for royalty.
