Review of Amy's Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Amy's Kitchen: Black Bean Vegetable Soup

I am a huge fan of foods from Amy's Kitchen. They're made from mostly organic vegetables, and she only uses ingredients that you'd use when cooking. Her frozen bowls and entrées are delicious and easy to make when you need a healthy and filling meal but don't have time to make it yourself, and they're really affordable too. She also makes a whole variety of canned soups. I recently tried the Black Bean Vegetable. Want to know what I thought? Then

.

This soup tasted okay, but it definitely wasn't my favorite food from Amy's Kitchen. I liked that it wasn't too spicy, and the consistency was smooth except for the crispy kernels of corn. I love eating foods where I can see actual pieces of real veggies, and this soup had pieces of carrots, potatoes, and celery, which was a plus. This soup was just a little too bland and boring and seemed to be missing something.


Serving Size 1 cup (half the can) 2 cups (whole can)
Calories 130 260
Total Fat 1.5g 3g
Saturated Fat 0g 0g
Cholesterol 0mg 0mg
Sodium 430mg 860mg
Carbs 25g 50g
Fiber 5g 10g
Sugar 6g 12g
Protein 6g 12g

The recommended serving size is half a can, but that's definitely not enough for a meal. If you end up eating both servings at once, it's only 260 calories, and you get 10g of fiber and 12g of protein. So it's pretty healthy, but tastewise I prefer Amy's Vegetable Barley Soup.

I LOVE this soup, although I probably kill the healthiness of it by adding cheese and sour cream :)

I almost bought this at Publix the other day! But I passed and bought my fav, pasta and 3-bean :) Sooo yummy. That's disappointing that this was bland, but I guess I could spice it up with my own seasonings. I'll have to try it!

Another good line of soups is Health Valley. I like a light broth veggie soup and these are the closest to something you would make at home. I get the organic no sodium kind in a can. Yum.

OMG. The Fire Roasted Southwestern Vegetable soup is spicy and super delish!!! The only other soup I've tried is the Butternut Squash soup and that was good too.

I love the Amy's brand. I am so excited about this. I find it so difficult to find organic meatless soups. I am so looking forward to tasting/buying these.

I really love the creamy tomato soup and the Spicy Chili, which includes black beans but has a lot more flavor.
