Gone are the days when soups were one flavour and could sometimes become a tedious lunchtime option, but as you can see from above the selection of flavour combinations from Baxters’ is plenty to keep you occupied. The soups were almost stew-like, lots of veggies and nice and thick, which is what I believe keeps you nice and full. Also refreshing to discover that unlike some on the market, these aren’t over seasoned – just tasty. My personal favourites were the Spiced Red Lentil & Smoked Bacon and the Quinoa, Ginger & Carrot. Nick’s favourites were the Spicy Green Lentil Dhal and the Quinoa, Ginger & Carrot as well.
Creator of the new range, Baxters’ Chef, Darren Sivewright says, “We have always been committed to putting goodness in our soups and supporting healthy lifestyles. These new recipes will excite the palate with their flavour combinations whilst also providing nutritional support thanks to the key ingredients which have been found to have significant health benefits.”
I’ve always been a huge fan of soup anyway, but I’ve basically been making my own batches because I was always nervous about what was actually in soup, (extra salt/sugar etc) and I would try to add what I could to make it higher in protein. These Baxter soups have changed my opinion of that, and I must admit the ease of this lunchtime meal is far better and means I actually have more time for training. The soup I would make would just be in Tupperware and I’ve previously had soup and bag-related accidents on the ride into work, whereas a tin is obviously sealed and not going to cover the contents of my bag!
These hearty, plant-based protein soups have been welcomed with open arms for both my husbands and my training – him with his running and me with my swimming. Having that additional support for muscle recovery, so we can still train just as well the next day, or just for feeling fuller for longer throughout the day, protein is an important part of our diets and that is why the Baxters Hearty range is ideal.
