I’m Kali Star and my journey unraveled into Soup Sorceress over the years of a ton of inspiration, challenges, and growth. I started making medicinal vegetable broths, when reviving my health after quitting the use of caffeine.

I’m a Pescatarian who believes in the healing power of vegetables and herbs. The more plants the better. All my products are vegan, so anyone can enjoy them.
I really believe that if we change the way we’re doing things in the food industry, and support local, small, organic farms, that it will have a huge impact on our world- it can truly change everything. We would be more connected as humans, and our earth would return to health. Everyone should have access to healthy food.
Imagine if we had more small farms growing everywhere, that care about the health of the soil, the plants, the earth. Imagine if everyone was fed well, and had an abundance of organic food.
We don’t have to do away with Super Markets and only live off our own land- although that’s great if you can do so. We can still have the convenience of Super Markets, we just need to change the way we are making, growing and distributing food products in order to be more sustainable, and the way to do that is by not having the same ingredients in every batch, ingredients which are not meant to be grown year-round.
In my 10 years of working with small, organic farms through my CSA Earth Matterz, I learned to be really flexible and work with their available products rather than try to only get what I wanted from them. I ask them what the needs of the farm are, and then I create my recipe, not the other way around.
I had to figure out how I was going to make this viable with a fully-formed food product like soup, since I needed to come up with the nutrition facts, manufacture the labeling, and meet all the other requirements. Over time and a lot of wild stories later, I figured it out. If a farmer doesn’t have carrots but they have too much zucchini, that’s what I’ll work with. I don’t have to rely on warehouses or shipping from out of state to meet my needs for the company.
