Chef Dev has joined Just Soup to become their newly appointed culinary ambassador. With this, he’s launched two of his own signature soups, Bombay Tomato and Island Sweet Potato; two flavours that tie Dev to his roots!
The two flavours alongside fan favourites: Creamy Tomato Basil, Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato, Creamy Mushroom and Garden Vegetable will be available at over 700 Sobeys Inc. retail stores across Canada starting Sunday, October 17.
Each soup is sold in environmentally friendly glass jars. They come in regular and mini serving sizes and can be found in the soup/sauce section at your local Sobeys!
“There is something so satisfying about enjoying a bowl of hearty, flavourful soup made with fresh, natural ingredients, especially during the cooler months. I jumped at the chance to work with Just Soup to create my own savoury soup flavours to add to their already incredible collection. Just Soup will keep Canadians warm, and their palates inspired, this fall and winter season.”Chef Dev
