Best Soup- Take-home??

meld_la Apr 15, 2010 07:10 PM

I'm having a small dinner party and want to serve a soup- preferably a winter vegetable puree (not cream-based). I'm thinking butternut squash, carrot or something like that.

I'm near Yonge and Bloor, so somewhere within reasonable driving distance...

    The soups ate Dash kitchen are quite good, and it's less than a 10 minute drive from your location. http://www.dashkitchen.ca

      I have a REALLY good suggestion that I used for Thanksgiving last year. Longo's grocery (and a couple of independant grocery stores I've seen)..carry this line..
      Anyway..it's called Village Kitchen and it's in the frozen section at Longo's. I served the Apple Squash and it's sooo amazingly good.
      It served about 3, so buy two packs and you should be good. This is my 'go to' serve at home when entertaining soup!

        Close to you just up Yonge -- All the Best Fine Foods has dinner-party-worthy soups of the kind you're looking -

          Ravi Soups does some of the BEST soup in the city! I bet you could call in an order for 4-6 people and you could pick it up from them. Whole Foods also has a decent selection of homemade soups and are $6.99 for a large mason jar.

              For something like that, Longos and Sobeys make great take home soups. Snazz them up with some toasted pumpkin seeds and you've got a dinner party worthy soup.

                Lots of good suggestions already - I'll add the lovely lentil soup from Tabule at Yonge and Davisville. You might also be able to get something at Whole Foods - they usually have at least 5 or 6 different soups available and they're pretty decent.

                  Delica @ 1440 Yonge has amazing soups. I had their Tuscan Tomato soup for the first time last week and can't stop thinking about it. It's that good.
