Manolo’s Best Farmstand Chili and Soups is the creator of healthy and nutritious vegan, gluten-free and soy-free chilli and soup recipes as well as Whole Foods supplier of shoppers’ favourite ready-to-eat vegan foods. Our mission now and since our founding days, is to bring joy to our community through delicious food.
The story begins in 2010 when Mitch Wolinsky, now better known as Chef Manolo, on a quest to improve his diet through plant-based food, discovered that the selection of ready-to-eat prepared vegan dishes in stores was quite disappointing. And so, at the encouragement of his corporate executive wife Yvette, he started to work on his own recipes. He created a nutritious plant-based chilli recipe prepared with high-quality ingredients that was vegan, gluten-free and soy-free. He also developed a recipe for Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with reduced sugar and sodium. The soup was vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free as well! Thanks to this innovation, Chef Manolo’s dishes were perfect not only for vegans, but also for people with food allergies since they were designed to be free of the top eight most common allergens.
