Glorious soups are one of my favourite ready-made soup brands. I don't buy ready-made soups all that often, but they're handy for having in the fridge for when you need something a bit more warming than a salad or sandwich at short notice. I've always found them to be full of flavour and they're inspired from various flavours around the world - the West African Chicken and Peanut is one of my all-time favourites. I can't get enough of it.
And they've brought out a Skinny low-fat range, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few of the soups to try.
I was sent the Keralan Summer, Goan Tomato and Lentil, New England Butternut Squash, North African Spiced Vegetable and Fragrant Thai Carrot soups.
The Keralan Summer soup is the spiciest - but rich, with tomatoes and Indian spices. It's warming with the spices and chilli, and was actually one of my favourites.
The New England Butternut Squash soup is again, rich - and silky. It's blended until smooth and the cumin in the soup gives the whole thing some gentle warmth. There's also a slight fruity sweetness in there, as it's finished with a little mango chutney. Lovely.
The North African Spiced Vegetable soup was, as it says on the website, inspired by a trip to Istanbul - there's sumac, harissa and Ras El Hanout in there, along with lots of other flavours. The flavour was quite sweet and fruity, but also tangy and mildly spiced.
The Fragrant Thai Carrot soup is creamy and really fragrant - obviously there's coconut there and you have the Thai flavours of lemongrass, chilli and coriander. My children had a taste of this and found they could tolerate it - it's one of the less spicy soups from the range I was sent.
