Tuscan Peasant Soup

I’m visiting my family in California and enjoying the bounty of amazing fresh fruits and vegetables that Montana’s climate simply can’t support. Though I can’t sneak my weight in produce onto the plane for my trip back to Bozeman, I will grab a few other locally-sourced ingredients to enjoy when I arrive home. One of these must-eats is Sierra Soups Tuscan Peasant Soup, a yellow lentil soup mix that is vegan and gluten-free. Sierra Soups also offers six additional vegan soup mixes — all of which can be picked up here in the Central Valley or ordered online. This is how I kick up my Tuscan Peasant Soup.
