I love eating soup but hardly ever find the time to make it so I decided to try the range of soups from New Covent Garden as they are made from fresh ingredients and will be almost as good for me as home made. Packaging ======= This soup is available in a 600g tetra pack in the chiller section of the supermarkets Price ==== In Tesco it costs £1.99 per carton but seems to be on offer at two cartons for £3 a lot of the time. How To Cook ========== Easy peasy. Either heat in a pan or stick it in the microwave for a couple of ... Read the complete review

I have got a cold and am going to go to bed when I have told you about a soup that has just made me feel a little bit better. New Covent Garden soups are all nice except for the broccolli one but i don't like broccolli anyway. This soup is Plum Tomatoe and Basil and comes in a cardboard carton that lasts me for about 2 meals. The carton is easy to open and has to be kept in the fridge because it has natural ingreadients which will go off quickly. When you cook it it is very important not to let it come to the boil because this soup loses its taste even more than other soups when it boils. A very quick heat through is all it needs to get it ... Read the complete review

I absolutely love these soups, they sel them at the canteen at uni and i adore them all, but especially the tomato soup one. You can't go wrong with tomato soup, its a classic. Add the fact that the covent garden isn't abnormally smooth (like the dodgy heinz version) and also add some basil, rosemary and oregano (keeps in interesting, not just tomatoes) you have yourself a really tasty soup. Per half a pint serving you'll find 6g of fat (0.9g of that being saturated), 14.7g of sugar (daily recommended amount is 90g, so not bad) and 0.9g of salt. All of these values are pretty low, so can indulge in thistasty soup for lunch guilt free, in the knowledge that it ... Read the complete review

I used to eat a tin of tomato soup every weekend with four slices of bread when I was a kid. In retrospect, I think this was quite piggish of me. Nevertheless, I soon went off it as tinned tomato soup seemed to go seriously down hill. It just started to taste gross. I hadn't had tomato soup for years, it seemed, when I bought a packet of Convent Garden Plum Tomato and Basil Soup when it was on offer. I wasn't really expecting much from it, I don't know why. I guess you would expect it to be different since it is fresh and not tinned. Never mind. This soup is absolutely delicious, seriously. You shove it in a sauce pan or the microwave - and what's really cool ... Read the complete review

I picked this soup up in Sainsburys the other week as part of a 2 for £3 offer on the New Covent Garden range (they usually sell at around £2 per carton). I've tried several of these soups in the past, and found them to be a bit hit and miss, so I was keen to try out some new flavours to see if I could find any gems. As a coeliac, I was rather limited in my choice- all the good flavours seemed to contain gluten. But eventually I tracked down this plum tomato and basil soup, which didn't sound particularly interesting, but hey, coeliacs can't be choosers! Like all the NCG soups, this is made from only natural ingredients, and is fresh, so has to be used within ... Read the complete review
