Dr. McDougall's All Natural Lentil Soup

Dr. McDougall's All Natural Lentil Soup is an all natural, vegan and gluten free soup that blends savory lentils with brown rice and vegetables in a perfectly seasoned broth. According to the description on the Right Foods website, "it is a delicious, hearty soup that provides complete protein essential amino acids."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (245 grams)
Calories: 150
Total Fat: 0.5 grams, 1%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 480 mg, 20%
Carbohydrates: 27 grams
Fiber: 10 grams, 40%
Sugars: 2 grams
Protein: 9 grams

The first thing I did was check out the nutrition facts,which turned out to be very impressive. Each 1 cup serving of Dr. McDougall's All Natural Lentil Soup provides 150 calories, 0.5 grams of total fat, 480 mg sodium (20% of the daily value), 10 grams of fiber (40% of the DV), 2 grams of sugars and 9 grams of protein. Did you catch that - 40% of your daily value for fiber and 9 grams of protein - if you had eaten Fiber One Honey Squares Cereal (Review) for breakfast, you would already have 80% of your daily fiber requirement before dinner!

Of course, another important factor is the taste, and while this lentil soup was hearty, it was also a little bland. There's a LOT of lentils, so you definitely get your money's worth there, but it's not as flavorful as Dr. McDougall's Organic Tortilla Style All Natural Soup (Review) - adding a little hot sauce seemed to perk it up a bit though.

The ingredients in Dr. McDougall's All Natural Lentil Soup are filtered water, lentils, vegetables (onions, carrots, celery, tomatoes, garlic), organic brown rice, organic wine, natural flavor (non animal source), yeast extract potato starch, spices sea salt.

I received samples for review, but it's available on the Right Foods website for purchase at $17.94 for a case of 6 (18 ounce (510 gram) cartons). While I loved the nutrition of Dr. McDougall's All Natural Lentil Soup, the flavor was lacking - although I preferred it to Amy's Organic Lentil Soup (Review). I look forward to trying more Dr. McDougall's All Natural Soups - and finding others that are as good as the Organic Tortilla Style Soup.
