National Soup & Slow Cooking Month Pacific Foods

January is National Soup Month and National Slow Cooking Month, so you know we’re celebrating. We wanted to share a few of our favorite recipes because there’s nothing quite like walking in your front door from the cold, dark January to the smell of some slow-simmered soups.

A few months ago, the finalists from our Creative Chef Competition came up with these fabulous recipes featuring our Soup Starters. They inspired us to put together a few of our own easy, slow cooking recipes featuring the Soup Starters. They’re perfect for this chilly soup season.
