One of our very favorites is Dr. McDougall’s Vegan Split Pea & Barley Soup because it’s hearty, healthy and easy to prepare. It comes it in a single serving BPA-free cup, and while our preference is to boil water and fill it up to the line, we don’t always have access to a stove, so we use a microwave at the office and it’s quite convenient. After a short time of heating, we like to stir in Red Star Nutritional Yeast Flakes because nutritional yeast packs quite a healthy dose of potassium, B vitamins, folate and so many other necessary nutrients. It also amplifies the savory flavor of the soup with a nice cheesey kick (minus the dairy).

With 7g of dietary fiber and only plant-based proteins, we feel very satisfied after lunch. We’re also huge fans of Dr. McDougall’s Vegan Lentil Couscous, Black Bean & Lime, and Pad Thai soups because every single one can be used as a delicious starter for homemade soups.

What makes this company extra awesome are their conscientious values:

“Nourishing your well-being while helping to sustain the earth is our recipe for happiness. That’s why we source non-genetically modified ingredients and make our cups with paper sourced from certified, responsibly managed forests.”

Now that’s some deliciousness we can really support.
