About Moon Soup:
It’s a spinach and mushroom soup that features over 18 secret herbs and spices. It was this dish (soup bowl) that caught the attention of Apollo astronaut Jim Irwin. A frequent visitor to the restaurant, he was instrumental in getting the soup served at Kennedy’s training center. He also recommended the soup to be served on the Apollo 15 mission.So, what is hiding in the back of your pantry?
Well, long story short, the soup, along with Vichyssoise and Seafood Mushroom soups, were sent to NASA in Houston to undergo testing to make sure that it met their (NASA) nutritional requirements for astronauts. The soups passed and went into space with Colonel Irwin’s crew. The Romaine soup would make two additional trips on the Apollo 16 and the Apollo-Soyuz. Soon after, the soup earned the nickname, “Moon Soup.”
