This flavour is an out and out winner and I don't for one moment (even though I'm English) begrudge the fine people at Baxters proudly showing off this fine traditional Scottish soup.
If its good enough for a Highlander its good enough for me! Who wants to live forever? Well, I do.
I'm not saying eating this soup will give you the gift of immortality but some of the ingredients in it such as Pearl Barley, Green Beans, Peas, Tomatoes and Herbs and Spices in most medical studies that I have seen are shown to increase life expectancy compared to a control group that eats a higher fat and heavily processed food diet.
The soup has a meaty flavour to it because it includes a very small amount of lamb and beef (4.4% in total) plus some Beef Extract and Lamb Fat. So you are getting a meaty tasting soup yet mostly eating vegetables.
When I see a tin of Baxters Highlanders Broth on the shelf of a supermarket it really does give my feet and trolley The Quickening towards it.
Its ingredients are:
Water, Potatoes, Carrots, Pearl Barley (6% Cooked), Onions, Beef (2.2%), Lamb (2.2%), Celery, Wheatflour, Green Beans, Modified Cornflour, Peas, Concentrated Tomato Paste, Salt, Yeast Extract, Lamb Fat, Herbs and Spices, Malt Extract from barley, Beef Extract, Garlic Puree. Vegetables 24%.
It is just 194 calories per whole can and only a minute 1.5% fat content.
I urge the people of England to let go of the past and buy this soup.

Baxter's highlander broth is a traditional recipe from Baxters soup range, the broth is a very rich made with lamb and beef stock, I wasn't quite sure when I saw the label that I would like it as there was mix of meat flavours , but It is delicious.
The highlander broth has satisfying chunks of potato, carrot, onion, celery, green beans and peas as well as pearl barley. The soup is comes in a 415g tin with a ring pull lid, which I think all cans should have these days, makes opening the can so easy.
Highlander's broth is a low calorie meal in a tin containing 97 calories for half a can, I warmed the soup up in a pan gently and you could instantly smell the meaty aroma of the lamb and beef stock.
The famous red Baxter's logo is emblazoned on the front of the tin, the tin label is predominately red in colour, with a bowl of the steamy highlander's broth on the front.

Overall highlander's broth is a really tasty soup and a great winter warmer, quick and easy to prepare.
This is one of our most traditional recipes. A rich & satisfying broth made with lamb, beef, a variety of vegetables & pearl barley in a rich stock - the perfect accompaniment to a day out in the hills.
