Fall’s cooler temperatures call for cozy foods – and soups and stews are prime menu additions for restaurants right now. They are easy add-ons to a meal, they help operators incorporate the abundant produce of the season, and they are big-time efficiency boosters when it comes to your inventory. This season, consider soups and stews with plant-forward ingredients and lean proteins that combine comfort and health.
Soup is an all-around winner: It provides comfort food for guests, travels and freezes well, and feeds a crowd. What’s more, it helps you make efficient use of a broad range of ingredients at a time when you are likely being extra mindful of waste and may be struggling to source key supplies. Soup also makes for a flavorful, filling meal.
