One Pot, Gluten-Free Curry Cauliflower Noodles

By | Recipes, Souperb | No Comments

This One Pot, Gluten-Free Curry Cauliflower Noodles recipe is a quick, easy and nourishing dish from Chef Joanna. The secret behind the ease of this dish is the use of Souperb’s Curry Cauliflower Soup as the flavorful sauce. Adding fresh veggies, noodles and your preferred protein makes this recipe a wholesome, fulfilling choice. 

This recipe is flexible, so you can substitute any veggies you may have around. Red pepper and Eggplant are great examples of some veggies that would go well with this recipe. The noodles and protein for this dish can also be substituted to your liking. While we used fresh white fish from Berkeley Bowl, a vegan sausage or seitan would also pair nicely. The possibilities are endless!

It’s National Sauce Month as well as National Nutrition Month, and we wanted to share a nutritious recipe that shows the ease of using soup as a sauce. It is a simple way to provide a blast of flavor and nutrients to your dish without having to put time into crafting a sauce. 

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Scallions, chopped
  • 1 24 oz container of Souperb Curry Cauliflower Soup
  • 1 lb of White Fish, or 1 lb Vegan Sausage, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 Handfuls Fresh Spinach 
  • 1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil 
  • 1 lb uncooked Vermicelli Noodles (or preferred noodles of choice)

Step 1: Heat Olive Oil in a large pot. Add Mushrooms and Scallions, sauté 5 min. Reserve some uncooked Scallions for garnish. 

Step 2: Pour Curry Cauliflower Soup over the veggies and simmer for 5-10 min. until warm. Stir regularly.

Step 3: Add White Fish and cover. Poach until flaky, about 5 min. If using Vegan Sausage* or other protein, cooking time may vary. *Depending on brand, can be sautéed in Step 1 with Mushrooms.

Step 4: Add Noodles and Spinach to the pot. Stir to submerge Noodles. Season with Salt as desired. Cook covered for 2-3 min. 

Step 5: Serve immediately and garnish with Scallions, if desired.

Celebrating Chef Joanna on International Women’s Day

By | Souperb | No Comments

SouperbFounder

March 8th is International Women’s Day and what better way to celebrate than to dive into the history of Souperb’s female founder, Joanna Terry.

Joanna comes from a family committed to feeding the hearts of friends and family with delicious, fresh food. Her grandmother, Myrtle, owned a restaurant in a small farming town where farm-to-table was a daily custom. Farmers would drop their fresh vegetables at the door of the restaurant and Myrtle would create mouth-watering dishes for the town. Joanna’s mom, Mary, learned to cook by Myrtle’s standards and taught her daughters the same fundamental approach toward cooking. Following her heart, Joanna then pursued a professional career in culinary arts and attended culinary school in San Francisco.

InternationalWomensDay

Chef Joanna started Souperb to bring nourishing vegetables in an easy to eat, satisfy and comforting format – soups. After a humble beginning at Farmers Markets in the San Francisco Bay Area, Souperb has since expanded and can be found in more than 100 stores, including Whole Foods and Sprouts locations. Chef Joanna is passionate about continuing in her grandmother’s tradition with Souperb.

A Valentine’s Day Love Letter to Tomatoes

By | Souperb | One Comment

Cherry, Grape, Beefsteak, Roma, Heirloom. No matter which type of tomato you hold dear to your heart, all tomatoes have a wealth of nutritional benefits. Consuming tomatoes provides a combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, including hearty amounts of vitamins C, E and  A. So why is this a love letter? Because one of tomato’s main benefits is its positive effect on the heart. 

Something to really love about tomatoes is the fact that it contains the powerful antioxidant Lycopene. Higher blood levels of lycopene have been associated with reductions in cardiovascular disease risk. For example, intake of Lycopene has been shown to result in decreased total cholesterol – mainly decreased LDL cholesterol, which can contribute to the formation of plaque buildup in the arteries. In addition to Lycopene, tomatoes are chock full of heart-healthy potassium; the flow of potassium in and out of heart cells helps regulate your heartbeat.

Not only does Lycopene provide a plethora of health benefits, but it is the pigment principally responsible for giving tomatoes their luscious red color! Want to increase your intake of lovely, heart-healthy tomatoes? Try Souperb’s Tomato with Fennel Seeds; a tasty spin on a comforting classic that is full of fresh tomatoes.

Start of Fall

By | Souperb | No Comments

It’s the start of fall and I’m thrilled to be moving indoors. One of my favorite things is to cook for friends and family. With the cooler nights, I love to gather friends in the kitchen or around the warmth of the dinner table.
I recently read an article that asked for the last time you felt pure joy and I completed that sentence with…cooking for others. Of course, I love to make soup and my heart smiles when I smell a stock simmer on the stove. Does cooking bring you joy?

We’d love to hear how cooking makes you happy on our facebook page. See f link at the bottom of this page.
