The only thing that should be preserved in a bowl of soup is the memory of how incredibly good it tastes and how it makes you feel. Of all the appreciative ways in which we describe this warm (or cool), soothing, healing, hearty, brothy and versatile cup of liquid kindness, thanks to BowlFace Soup, we can add fresh and all-natural to the mix.
“Soup is nostalgic and reminds you of the innocent and simple things in life,” says BowlFace owner Hamish Christall.
When Christall found more than he was looking for in the processed soups from the grocery store, he took matters into his own hands (and kitchen), creating a collection of vegetarian soups with interesting flavor components, all natural local ingredients and easy-to-use, recyclable packaging. When he spotted his daughter holding a bowl to her face to get the last tasty bits of her meal, his business found a name.
BowlFace offers both seasonal and year-round classic and global options based on ingredients from local producers such as non-GMO corn from None Such Farms and kale and other veggies from Stoney Lane Organic Farm. He often takes the misshapen foods and end cuts of cheeses for his ingredients in order to reduce waste. BowlFace Soup comes in convenient recyclable pouches, which last two weeks in the refrigerator and three months in the freezer.
So, if you’re looking for hearty winter fare, try the Hungarian Mushroom Goulash, Roasted Butternut Squash or Roasted Sweet Corn Chowder. For the summer months, BowlFace adds Gazpacho to the list along with a line of fresh dips such as feta, arugula and roasted garlic; “Black & Bleu” (roasted mushrooms and bleu cheese); white bean, sun-dried tomato and basil; and Moroccan carrot.)
But, hold onto your bowls, a new spring soup is in the works. Christall is cooking up his own version of a vegetarian Penang Laksa made with coconut milk, spinach and hints of curry.
Christall, who spent many years working in restaurants, says what he enjoys most about owning BowlFace is being in front of the customer and hearing the feedback, He knows he’s created something special when he hears non-vegetarian customers remark that they don’t miss the meat!
