The Art of Good Food-Loved it

I would like to introduce you to The Art of Good Food. They are a family business from Montana creating mixes for vegetarian/vegan soups, salad dressings, breadsticks and cookies.  You create the  edibles at home while receiving all the praise and love from your family and friends. Their mixes are  hand crafted in small batches. They use only organic and wholesome ingredients purchased from certified organic growers and suppliers.

The first thing you will notice about their products are their beautiful labels. That is the “Art” part of their charm. They also use all biodegradable packaging which is an added bonus.

We tried the Yellowstone Soup and the Black Paddle Breadstick mixes.

Yellowstone Soup:

The soup is a mild yellow curry with saffron, corn, barley and three types of beans. The only preparation it required was soaking the beans for two hours and cooking in the pot for two more hours.

The finished soup was phenomenal.  It was light enough to enjoy on a summer evening, but hearty enough for dinner. The aroma of curry and the sweetness of  corn are both out of this world. We are seasoning fans and chose to add a touch more curry and salt at the end and served it with a slice of lemon  which really enhanced the flavors.  This soup was easier to make than a sandwich and it tasted like it came from an upscale vegan bistro.

As Sandy put the finishing touches on the soup, I created the Black Paddle Breadsticks from the mix. All it required was a little olive oil. You mix the dough and let it rise.  Cut the dough into strips and let them rise, then bake them and prepare for greatness.  I sprinkled them with a tiny bit of olive oil and sea salt before I popped them in the oven. It was so easy I was sure I was doing it wrong until they came out of the oven. A choir of angels was overheard throughout the land.  We baked them until they were crunchy and they were out of this world. They are seasoned, fragrant and so full of flavor you do not need to put anything on them. But if you want to…they are amazing with hummus the next day.

    Isnt it wonderful!! The Art of Good Food is really fantastic. Their food is easy to prepare with extraordinary results. I really thought so too about the Yellowstone Soup being perfect for a summer meal, but would also be perfect in the middle of January.
