New From Scratch Soups!

TC Farm is excited to offer new soups along with our monthly deliveries. We've included one soup in our September pop-up sampler and made a special soup sampler package as well!

Our family loved trying them. It was so nice to each be able to pick our personal favorite and get just what we wanted to dinner!



Sweet Potato & Quinoa Black Chili - The Kids Favorite!

Ingredients:

Scratch-made Veggie Stock, Sweet Potatoes, Black Beans, Onions, Diced Tomatoes, Red Quinoa, Red Peppers, Green Peppers, Orange Juice, Agave Syrup, Cold-pressed Sunflower Oil, Lime Juice, Sea Salt, Tomato Paste, Corn Starch, Garlic, Spices, Cilantro, Paprika

Why these soups

I've known Ryan and Mike (founders of the Simpls restaurants) for many years. I was so impressed meeting with them and hearing about their passion for local, organic food. I found it interesting they had built a thriving series of restaurants centered around their soups -- I thought these soups must be super impressive to anchor a restaurant!

Well, as you can imagine the pandemic shut down their restaurants - one main location was in the skyway and Betsy loved having meetings at the restaurant on campus.

However, they had such a following for these soups their customers still wanted them even if they were no longer at the office needing a quick healthy lunch. As you can imagine, they pivoted, offering the soups in Quart sized containers to enjoy at home.

We decided to share with TC Farm members so you can enjoy a quick, healthy meal instead of having to run out for takeout.

Edit: A couple members have already emailed to ask: Yes, the soups are delivered frozen so they store nicely! And yes, they are gluten free!



Split Pea and Kale - Betsy's Favorite

Ingredients: Split Peas, Scratch-made Veggie Stock, Kale, Onions, Celery, Carrots, Garlic, Thyme, Pepper, Rosemary, Sea Salt, Cold-pressed Sunflower Oil

What makes them special

Ryan and Mike have refined these recipes over the years. Most ingredients are organic and often local. The soups offered today are vegetarian and several are vegan - so you can enjoy them as-is or consider crisping up some cutup ham or other sausages to mix-in.

We designed our September Sampler to include some ham and garlic cheese bread to pair nicely with the split pea and kale soup!

We're working with Ryan and Mike to offer some soups using other TC Farm products, so look for those soon!

MN Wild Rice - A Classic Everyone Loves

Ingredients:

Local MN Wild Rice, Scratch-made Veggie Stock, Organic Valley Cream, Onions, Mushrooms, Carrots, Celery, Butter, Garlic, Almonds, Brown Rice Flour, Curry Powder, Parsley, Pepper, Salt

Buy one, Give one

As you know, food security has been a passion for us at TC Farm. We often donate to local and international organizations helping those in need access food. The need around the world has increased dramatically this year.

One way to help is to donate to groups that help others, but what I love about Simpls is they have made it easy and tasty to help:


For every quart of soup sold, TC Farm and Simpls have partnered to contribute a bowl to those in need right here in Minnesota.



Roasted Cauliflower Turmeric - Jack's Favorite

Ingredients:

Cauliflower, Red Onion, Scratch-made Veggie Stock, Coconut Milk, Red Lentils, Garlic, Turmeric, Cold-pressed Sunflower Oil, Cumin, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne

Packages Available

Soup Sampler

$50 $47.50
6 lbs avg

Box 850
$8.33/lb

Amazing quick meals!

Three quarts of soup from Simpls!

This month we're featuring:
  • MN creamy wild rice
  • Roasted Cauliflower Turmeric
  • Quinoa Chili

These are really well done high end restaurant quality soups and are mostly organic and local -- made in Minneapolis and all staff are guaranteed at least a $15/hr minimum wage.

For every quart of soup we delivery, Simpls and TC Farm are teaming up to donate a cup of soup to local food banks. 


They are transitioning to as much organic product as possible (ingredients like lemongrass or some other seasonings are tricky to source organic) - The labels are a bit out of date in regards to the amount that is organic - know that even more of the is organic than what is listed.

I recommend ordering some bread and salad with these!

Baby greens

One pound bag of organic baby salad green mix grown in harmony with our fish.  Raised in WI by Superior Fresh. 


These are super fresh and will last longer than grocery salad greens. They are also a fantastic value since we can provide them in bulk; the normal price would be $16 for this much salad mix.

The best bread

Three 1.5lb loaves of sourdough bread made with organic wheat (we use modern hybrid wheat in this mix)

Each will be a different recipe, some plain, others with added ingredients.  October this month is baker's choice, you'll get a mix of items. If you want a certain variety, remove this and add the specific box you want to your cart.

Bread loaves will be hearth batard shaped bread, not sandwich loaves.


Store your bread in a paper bag for 4-5 days on the counter or freeze in plastic bags for up to 6 weeks.

You may add this box to your cart if available. However, most (if not all) of the available packages will be reserved each month via the bread CSA.

We recommend clicking here to join the bread CSA.

    Are the soups frozen or refrigerated? How long will they keep?

    Thanks for asking! These soups are all frozen so they will last several months (if not a longer) in your freezer.
