Description: “A hearty and warming soup of carrots, swede, green beans and parsnip with red lentils and pearl barley.”
Health: OK – only 236 calories for the pot so additional sustenance required, but good on all key vital indicators.
Taste: Meh. No interesting spice, no meat for texture – nothing wrong with it for what it is but just totally uninspiring. If they’d swapped out sweet potato or butternut squash for the regular potatoes in there that would have been something.
Full-o-meter: OK. Not great. Too low-cal, not enough protein to really carry you.
Verdict: 2/5. I’m sure it’d rate higher for someone that liked plain vegetable soup, but for me it was a bit dull.
