The idea for Tabatchnick Fine Foods started simmering on a wood burning stove in our Great-Grandmother's kitchen more than a century ago. Her delicious, homemade soup had become famous in our family and with neighbors throughout the area.
What made Great-Grandma's soups so special? She took great pride in creating wholesome soup made with only the finest and most natural ingredients.
Four generations later we still follow Great-Grandma's simple recipe for great soup. We search the world for only the highest quality natural ingredients. All our soups start with our own pure artesian well water, and are simmered slowly in small batches, always under the watchful eye of a Tabatchnick family member. Great Grandma would be proud!
Tabatchnick soups are available in several sections of the grocery store, both in the frozen section and on the shelves. They're also available in a great variety of flavors: chicken broth with noodles & dumplings, chicken broth with noodles & vegetables, vegetable, barley & mushroom, pea, lentil, cabbage, corn chowder, New England Potato... and many more! Some of the soups are dairy-free, some are suitable for Passover, some are low-sodium, some are <101 calories per serving, and some are organic. And Tabatchnick also makes side dishes like macaroni and cheese and creamed spinach. So you can find the right soup or side dish from Tabatchnick to meet your specific needs!
Since I'm watching my calories, I started out with the Old Fashioned Potato soup. It comes frozen, with two packets per bag. You can either microwave or boil the bag, I tried both methods and thought both worked well and resulted in delicious, hot soup. I really liked this flavor of soup- and I loved that it only has 100 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 330 mg of sodium per serving! It was filling and nicely flavored and made for a good lunch.
I also tried the Chicken Broth with Noodles & Dumplings frozen soup. This was a little less convenient to make, since it all came in one big packet that I had to cook at once, rather than in two separately frozen portions like the potato soup. But this also meant that it was easy and quick to reheat my leftovers for a second meal later on, so it wasn't a totally negative situation. This soup was also delicious- the broth was yummy and the dumpling was perfect and light and fluffy!
Soup is a big part of my busy-mom meal schedule, and I'm definitely going to be keeping some Tabatchnick frozen soup in my freezer for easy go-to meals for me and my family! Go here to find a store near you that carries these great soups.
