Heinz Minestrone Soup
Advantages: vegetarian, yummy
For some reason over the last couple of years i have really become a soup lover. I never used to pay much attention to them but will always have some tins in my ladar. I do prefer the traditional tins that always seem to taste more fresher, if thats possible for a tin. Being vegetarian, except for tomoto soup, there really isn't much commercial soups for vegetarians but i do like minestrone. I'm not too fussed if it comes in a tin or a packet too much but always look out heinz as its a recognisable brand of soup which has always been around as far as i remember.
The 400g tin of Heinz Minestrone Soup cost me 87p at Sainsburys. More expensive than the packet of sachets but all in all not bad for a meal of soup. The tin has the familiar Heinz logo with a red label while on the back of the tin you have a list of ingredients and nutritional advice. The tin has its own tin opener ring pull off on the top of the tin.
Taking the lid off is painlessly and cleanly done as possible with these tins and when I poured it out into a saucepan I could clearly see this brown soup had other bits such as noodles, pees, onions and potatoes. You can microwave it but i always do mine on the stove stirring it occasionally until it comes to the boil and then lower the temperature and let it simmer for a bit. It only takes a couple of minutes.
On serving the soup is not too thick and not too watery. The soup had a combination of the bits of vegetable that tasted good and the sauce was rich and flavoury.
Whilst i'm not overly loyal to Heinz or any other soup i do put a tin in my basket every now and again safe in knowing what is a good soup.
