Monday Review- Kettle Cuisine
This Monday Review is brought to you by Kettle Cuisine, a New England-based company specializing in soups since 1986. They currently offer over 70 varieties of soups, chilis, and chowders.
Founder Jerry Shafir felt inspired to create high protein, high fiber gluten-free soups for his daughter and others with celiac disease. The soups are manufactured in a peanut-free facility. The nine gluten-free frozen soup varieties are regularly tested to ensure there is no gluten cross-contamination.
They also make several dairy free varieties and hope to add more. I'll keep you posted on that.
Kettle Cuisine gluten-free frozen soups are made from scratch with all-natural ingredients. I had the opportunity to try Chicken Soup with Rice Noodles, Organic Carrot and Coriander, Tomato Soup with Garden Vegetables and Angus Steak Chili with Beans. Don't the titles just make your mouth water?
The soups are really tasty. The Chicken Soup with Rice Noodles and the Tomato Soup with Garden Vegetables are particularly kid-friendly. They come frozen in 10 ounce bowls and are filling for an adult.
The Kettle Cuisine website also offers "Soup Ideas" which I think are "souper ideas" for garnishing and serving the soups. For example, "bake the Angus Steak Chili with Beans in a shallow dish, top with cheese (soy cheese if you're keeping it dairy- free) and serve with whole chips"- awesome appetizer.
These soups would be perfect for grandparents to have on hand for their grandchildren with celiac or food allergies. They are great to have in the freezer for a quick dinner or if a babysitter is making a meal. You just pull back the cover and microwave.
Kettle Cuisine also helps service and relief organizations, focusing on health and nutrition, children and the advancement of women. Love that!
