Soup…from a truck!

I had today off and I am looking after a friends dog. So I decided to go for a big walk and check out a funky new food truck that is currently parked at the University of Ottawa. Stone Soup Foodworks  is a local business that believes in connecting people with one another and the land through a rich and healthy relationship with food. The way I got connected today was at their food truck.

Their food truck is a big green van that is currently parked at the University of Ottawa. From this cool truck they serve awesome soups, chilis and some baked goods. What makes Stone Soup Foodworks so cool is that they are really into local, organic and sustainable food. Not only do they source the products from local providers (Funny Duck Farms, Riverglen Biodynamics, Veggie Patch, Happy Goat Coffee Co., Auntie Loo’s Treats, etc.) but their van is solar powered! If you want to learn more about them (and I say you do!) checkout their website www.slowfoodfast.ca.DSC_0741

Today I had the French Onion Soup with some delicious bread! Whenever I have French Onion soup I find it way too salty and the onions mushy instead of soft. Stone Soup’s French Onion Soup wasn’t too salty and the onions were perfect. On top of that it had some nice crusty bread with cheese! Got to love the cheese!

My girlfriend had the Indian Spiced Carrot soup. She said it was GREAT! She loved the combinations of flavours and the bit of cilantro. Perfect pick me up for a cold day!

So if you’re around the University of Ottawa this is a place you need to go to! If you’re a student at the university this is one of the only healthy, yummy, sanely priced places to eat on campus! (talking as a alumni)

    I almost never drop remarks, however I looked at a few of the comments on Soup.
    ..from a truck! | Adventures of an Ottawa Foodie.
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of every one of your social networking pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Cheers!
