WIN-It-Wednesday: Pacific Soup Starters

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

One of my favorite dishes at my local Thai restaurant is a nice simmering gluten-free pot of fresh broth, veggies, chicken and rice noodles. Going out to eat and getting this favorite dish has been a real treat for me because it is one dish that I have no idea how to even start to duplicate at home.

But now things have changed.

Thanks to Pacific Natural Foods and their line of  Soup Starters – including Vietnamese-style Pho, Tortilla, and Thai Tom Yum –  I’ve been able to create an even better version of my Thai restaurant favorite… right in my very own kitchen.

I love that Pacific Natural Foods has created Soup Starters…  a quick and easy short-cut to once mysterious dishes. No searching for hard-to-find ethnic ingredients and no simmering on the stove for hours. These organic, gluten-free and non-GMO Soup Starters do all the leg work for you – and get you started in creating fast and easy restaurant favorites from scratch.

Today for lunch I created my very own customized Tom Yum Soup for one. It took just 20 minutes to make from start to finish. Pacific Soup Starters also have a resealable container that allows you to use just the amount needed and refrigerate the rest for another meal. No waste. No fuss.

I customized this sweet and spicy soup full of ingredients I love: Grilled chicken cooked up in some Sweet Red Chili Sauce, Vermicelli Rice Noodles, water chestnuts, pea pods and bell peppers – all simmered in the Tom Yum soup base and topped with chopped cilantro and green onions. I t was yummy… AND low-calorie!  For the recipe click here.

By now you all can tell how excited I am that Pacific Natural Foods is this WIN-It-Wednesday’s sponsor! =)
