It's so rare for me to find a new favorite food. I am such a creature of habit that I rarely try anything different or exotic. A few weeks ago I had a hankering for chili. But to be perfectly honest, none of the typical vegetarian chilis were doing anything for me. I usually had to doctor them with salt and cayenne just to have a little bit of flavor. But then I found Amy's Organic Spicy Chili. I'm a sucker for anything red and I was really drawn to the deep red colors on the can. As I cooked it that evening I had all of my standards out on the counter--cayenne pepper, salt, cheese--ready to liven up the flavor. But after testing a spoonful I realized it needed nothing. This chili is PERFECT just the way it comes. And, honestly, that's just not something you find very often. Bottom line; I have found a new favorite food; one that's actually good for me to eat. I look forward to the cold rainy San Francisco winter now that I have something rich and hearty to keep me warm!
Chicken soup is great for whatever ails you this time of year - unless you're a vegetarian. Amy's new Thai coconut soup in a can has the same comforting, warming character as chicken noodle, without meat. It's a brothy, creamy soup with the flavors of coconut milk and lemongrass, studded with tofu, shiitake mushrooms, sweet potatoes and other organic vegetables. It would make a nice first course or a light meal and would go down easily if you're sick.
