Just introduced last December, the Fig Food line of organic plant-based soups makes it easy to put whole grains on the daily menu with varieties like Tuscan Bean, Split Pea and Yucatan Black Bean with Epazoate, and our favorite, a variety made with the nutty Italian grain called farro. All come lightly salted, a rarity in packaged foods. Cartons are BPA-free, recyclable and need no refrigeration. One serving has 9 grams of fiber, 180 calories, and 260 milligrams of sodium.
