The 13 Best Store-Bought Vegan Soups to Stock up On
There’s no denying that soup is the ultimate comfort food, especially when we’re under the weather or feeling homesick. We like to keep a few cans in the pantry for last-minute, cozy dinners. To help out our plant-based friends we’ve compiled a list of 13 shelf-stable vegan soups to stock up on.
Upton’s now offers three delicious soup options to level up your pantry stash. They’ve got Chick Tortilla, Italian Wedding Soup, and Chick & Noodle canned soup varieties—just heat and enjoy. You can find these new products on Whole Foods shelves beginning in April.
