When it's cold outside, I get excited about soup. The thought of all that salt in the soup makes me cringe, but Campbell's Select Harvest does a good job of reducing the sodium in their soup. I turned my attention to Campbell's Select Harvest Light Southwestern Style Vegetable Soup after having given rave reviews to Campbell's Select Harvest Light Vegetable and Pasta Soup and Campbell's Select Harvest Light Vegetable Beef & Barley Soup.
There are the usual pieces of vegetables, including carrots, celery, tomatoes, and corn, but I paid more attention to the beans and pasta in the soup. The black beans contributed to the heartiness of the soup, but I wished there had been even more of them. All of these components were great with the tomato soup base, but the Southwestern kick was lacking. Although there are peppers mixed in the soup, the spiciness wasn't particularly noticeable.
Each of Campbell's Select Harvest Light Southwestern-Style Vegetable Soup provides 50 calories, no fat, 20% of the daily value for sodium,16% of the DV for dietary fiber, and 2 grams of protein.
An 18.6 ounce can of soup cost $1.27 at Target. This soup wasn't outstanding, but it still turned out all right. The sodium content might seem quite high (and it is), but this is the usual for "low sodium" soups. So consuming the whole can will give you more than 40% DV of sodium. There are plenty of vegetables, though, and other healthy bits to help this soup warm you up.
Overall, I would buy this soup again, although it's not my favorite of the Campbell's Select Harvest Light line.
