I am a real soup lover – and I’ve had pretty fantastic soups in my lifetime. My mom makes some of the best soups I’ve ever tasted, like Butternut Squash Soup, Shrimp and Corn Bisque, Italian Wedding Soup, and a to-die-for classic Chicken Soup. All of these soups she makes from scratch, laboring lovingly over a steaming pot for hours. So to say that my standards are high would be an understatement.
As a Progresso Artisan Ambassador I was sent the entire line to review, and here are my thoughts:
Rustic Tomato Soup with Chicken and Dumplings – to jump right into things, I have to say that this is my favorite soup out of all of them. I know, it’s terrible to play favorites but in this case I can’t help it. The flavor of oregano definitely jumps through, but it’s the dumplings that I found myself searching through the soup for.
Smoky White Bean and Winter Vegetables – This is one of those heavier soups that screams ‘winter’. It’s thick and has a lot of smoky flavor. When you’re heating it up it actually smell’s like bacon!
Creamy Potato with Sausage and Kale – This soup was super popular at NYCWFF. Inspired by Zuppa Toscana, I love how unlike most premade soups you can actually see the ingredients and chunks of potato in this soup.
Masala Curry Butternut Squash – Easily the most aromatic of all the soups, I garnished mine with a bit of apple and dried cranberry. You can really smell the garam masala – and I love how Progresso chose both the trendy flavor of curry with the most traditional flavor of butternut squash.
Creamy Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper – Roasted red pepper takes this creamy tomato soup to the next level. It’s definitely not your typical tomato soup!
