Kettle Cuisine Soups, Perfect for Frigid Weather

TOM ROASTVEG 3BEAN

Good evening from the icicle known as Washington, DC.  Based on what I read today, it is likely unseasonably cold for many of you.  I don’t know about you, but weather like this always makes me want soup.  Now, it is well established that I am all about making food from scratch. However, I also like to have emergency foods for busy times, so when the lovely folks from Kettle Cuisine contacted me to ask if I would be interested in trying their soups, I was immediately intrigued.  All of their ten single-serving soups are certified gluten-free. Of those, the three pictured above are vegan as well, so I tried those.

And they are delicious. Not too salty, but well-seasoned, containing lots of vegetables and, in the case of the chili, beans.  I asked the company about GMOs, as the ingredients are not organic,and was told that the company uses non-GMO soy and corn. These soups have been perfect to stash in the freezer at work for a night I work late without notice and need something warm to supplement my snacks.   They are pretty low in calories (the Tomato Soup is 110 calories while the other two hover around 200 calories) so I think of them more as a warm snack, which is perfect to power through a couple of extra hour at work before getting home and having a full dinner. All three soups are warm and comforting. 

Bottom line, the pluses:

  • Real food ingredients
  • No GMOs
  • Well seasoned
  • Gluten-free certified
  • Several allergy-friendly and vegan options

The downsides:

  • Limited use of organic ingredient
  • Use of corn oil – though it is GMO-free, I would prefer something more neutral (like grapeseed oil), which would also make the soups suitable for those with corn allergies

I am so pleased I got to try these products.  I am submitting this review to the Gluten-Free Homemaker’s Gluten-Free Wednesday.
