A recent study suggests the liquid consistency typical of soup soothes sore throats without upsetting the forks and knives living in the human stomach. Spoon up with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two litres of homemade soup and half a loaf of bread from Soup Bee, available for delivery or pickup. Soup Bee delivers downtown as well as to St. Mary's, River Heights, South End and Wolseley neighbourhoods.
The soup savants at Soup Bee craft fresh broth batches each week, easing enervated esophagi with fresh, homemade organic soups sourced exclusively from local food producers. A non-profit organization, Soup Bee shares their bounty while promoting food security and local producers. Recipes ratify weekly, but recent bowls were tipped to the fluid tune of gluten free, vegetarian potato leek soup ($10 per litre), made with fresh veggies, butter, cream and spices, and Italian wedding soup ($11 per litre), loaded with carrots, onions, orzo, basil, and oregano. Diners also have a chance to soak up defiant bits of deliciousness with a hearty half loaf of brown, multigrain, or French baguette ($1.90 per half loaf).
Soups are delivered chilled in reusable, microwaveable, freezable plastic containers, making them a convenient option for an expedited entree or impromptu fort construction. A variety of delivery and pick-up points avail themselves; tepid tummies can seek heat by checking here for more information on ordering and pick-up.
