Heinz's "Very Vegetable" Soups
Heinz are known for their baked beans more than any else. In my opinion at least. Well they make really good beans! Over the years, there have been many modifications too... With added ingredients such as bacon, cheese and even garlic.
Baked beans aside, I do know that Heinz do dish out great soups. I loved the 'chunky' line that they churned out. I love thick creamy soups and I think Heinz know a thing or two about making delicious soups in cans.
So when I saw this new 'Very Vegetable' series, I just had to try it. Bought two cans. The pumpkin & leek one plus another potato & spinach soup. Here's some photos of what they look like:
I know the soup doesn't look that great here, but really, it tastes good. I like pumpkin soups but haven't had time to make my own so having them the Heinz way is pretty good in fact. Great for hungry students who need a quick pick-me-up.
That's the potato & spinach one. Okay, this is how it really looks like:
Looks like porridge I know but it actually tastes good. Looks can be really deceiving some times... Anyway, i love these two soups but if I have to choose only one favourite, I'd go with the pumpkin & leek one. It's really light and refreshing.
Maybe when I have the time, I'll make the real, fresh version of these soups! it'll be fun ya...
