“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Soups „
I really do love soup and for as long as I can remember for some odd reason I've always loved sachets/packets of soup more than tins/cans. I have no idea why really but usually if I'm out and purchasing them myself (Opposed to my Mother getting them in our weekly shop for me) I always reach for a make up option such as this! I love vegetables and I love them in soups so then I saw this Golden Vegetable variety I decided to pick a pack up as for a mere 39p a packet I felt it was a very fair price indeed and the photograph of the soup looked really yummy! The Packaging: Dark brown to the front of the packet and white on the back and on the front there is a photograph of the soup and I'm told it is Morrisons Simmer Soup Golden Vegetable 'Ready in 2 Minutes, Serves 2' and there is an at a glance nutritional chart shown, I'm told it is to cook on the hob and that it is suitable for Vegetarians. On the back of the packet other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice being given (Contains Celery, gluten, milk, and sulphite), there is a full nutritional chart shown, I'm told how to cook it (Add 1 pint of cold water to this and heat it through in a saucepan on the hob for a couple of minutes), the size is stated which is 54g and contact details for Morrisons are given. It's a nice easy to open packet and the inside of it is foil lined to keep the powder obviously fresher for longer. The Soup Itself: Well as I said earlier all you do is add the contents of the packet to cold water. You have to mix well of course to make sure the powder has blended with the water and then you heat it all up. The powder is a yellowy colour with lots of dried vegetables in there. I can see flakes of carrot, onion and a small amount of peas and green beans in there too. Through cooking though you go from a powdery and lumpy looking mix up in a saucepan to a rich and thick and highly fragrant soup. The smell is simply wonderful and just smells so vegetably really and in a natural way and the sauce is now a sort of light yellow in colour and the vegetables peek out through that soupy sauce. Taste wise I rather like this. It's well seasoned, not at all lumpy and I like the thick texture this has to it alot. It's well seasoned with a slight onion taste to the soup liquid and the vegetables all expand through cooking and of actually taste rather fresh. The only thing I would say is I can't taste the potato Im told this has in it and the carrot being so finely chipped has no taste whatsoever but the rest does and even the peas to me are like fresh and juicy one's! Verdict: A nice soup that to me tastes really yummy! I like the texture of this and the seasoning given to it which pops the flavours out really well. There are a few spices in there visually that I can see but I can't work out what they are at all to be perfectly honest with you! Some of the vegetables taste wise are debatable in the taste stakes but overall I think this is a filling and warming and rather tasty soup but if you like real vegetables then maybe the dried one's in this won't be to your liking at all!
