And what else can you add to your Memorial Day gathering?
This Blount Organic Veggie Chili Soup.
I had the chance to try some and I really enjoyed this. What stuck out for me is that it had a smokey flavor to the chili. It's also gluten-free which is AMAZING. I love rich, thick soups that don't give me any gluten reactions. It includes some veggies and you know it didn't throw me at all. I could almost imagine having this with a ton of cheese on top in a bread bowl (maybe a gluten-free bread bowl)?
Check this soup out here on Blount Organic Soup's website.
I've had the chance to try out some other Blount Organic Soups (like their broccoli cheddar and tomato bisque) and they are my new favorite soup. I haven't actually found a FAVORITE soup since going gluten-free so I can't wait to see them in stores near me.
