Healthy Choice Minestrone Soup Review

Healthy Choice Minestrone SoupHealthy Choice Minestrone Soup is described as, "Savory tomato meets hearty potato in this classic mix of penne pasta and vegetables. Our Minestrone combines carrots, celery, green beans, and potatoes to balance the sweet and savory tomato base." I may be one of the few who likes tomato soups, so I followed the microwave directions and eagerly spooned it up.

I was surprised by how thick the tomato soup base was - it almost reminded me of pasta sauce rather than broth. While there was a decent amount of pasta and potatoes, the other vegetables were not plentiful and lacked vitality in the overwhelming tomato soup. Actually, to get a spoonful that resembled the picture on the bowl, I would have had to spend a lot of time fishing for vegetables. I wasn't wowed by the soup, but it was good enough considering I bought a 14 ounce bowl for $1.50.

A 1 cup serving of Healthy Choice Minestrone Soup provides 200 calories, 20% of the daily value for sodium and 21% of the DV for fiber. There is also 30% of the DV for vitamin C and 15% for iron.

I don't think I would buy this regularly, but the price is very reasonable, and it is one of the lower sodium content soups, so I would definitely use it as a base for a heartier "home made" minestrone soup.
