– To help Canadians ‘grain momentum’ with
their summer entertaining, Campbell Canada has joined culinary forces with top
North American food blogger Kelsey Brown of to declare this the
‘summer of super grains.’ Together, Campbell Canada and Kelsey are releasing
seven delicious recipes that focus on seasonal produce, an eclectic mix of healthy
super grains, and her essential flavour-boosting pantry item – Campbell’s® Ready to Use Broths. 

  “Chefs often like to use ingredients such as cream and butter to elevate their dishes,” says Kelsey.  “However, in the warm summer months, when we’re looking for lighter fare, I like to use Campbell’s broth because it adds a boost of flavour yet keeps dishes, like grains, light tasting and refreshing.” 

Kelsey’s summer grain creations reflect her whimsical
style of mixing new, exciting flavours into classic pairings. Each recipe starts
with Campbell’s Vegetable or 30% Less Sodium chicken or beef broths
as the foundation to infuse flavour into super grains like pearl barley and
farro. She then adds some creative flare with fresh summer produce and ingredients
like parmesan, apricot, jalapeño and mint to give each recipe its own exciting
flavour profile.  

“More and more Canadians are cooking with grains in
the summer and turning to broth to help enhance flavour,” says Moya Brown, Senior
Marketing Director, Campbell Canada. “Campbell’s
broths are prepared right here in Canada using quality ingredients, and with
all natural flavours and no artificial colours, it’s easy to see why Campbell’s is the number one selling broth in Canada.”

“My goal with these recipes was to show
Canadians how easy it is to switch things up for summer: just grab your
favourite broth, simmer with a healthy grain, and top it off with what’s in
your garden or favourite local fresh ingredients,” says Kelsey. “How easy, and delicious,
is that!?”
