Summary

Amy’s Organic Light in Sodium Lentil Soup is a hearty soup that makes for a great lunch.  The soup is a little flat due to the low salt content but a dash of a vinegar based hot sauce really wakes up the flavor.

This soup tastes nearly identical to Amy’s Low Sodium Lentil Vegetable Soup.

Pros

Healthy

Filling Lunch

Nice Flavor

Great With Hot Sauce

Cons

Flavor is a Little Flat.

It is still Soup Season over here and I opened up another flavor of Amy’s Organic Light in Sodium soups for lunch.  This time around I went with the “Light in Sodium” Lentil soup.

How Does Amy’s Light Sodium Lentil Vegetable Soup Taste?

I heated this soup up in the microwave (3 minutes on High) and had it for lunch.

I loved the flavor of the soup and really could not taste any difference from Amy’s Light in Sodium Lentil Vegetable soup.   There was a sweetness from the onions and carrots which balanced out by the earthiness of the lentils.  It was nice to have all of the different colors and textures as it kept the meal interesting.

The flavor was just a little “flat” and I write that off as due to the low sodium content.

Ready to Eat Low Sodium Lentil Soup

While the soup was good as it was straight from the can, it became completely delightful when I added a shot of Trader Joe’s Green Dragon Hot Sauce.  The vinegar from the hot sauce brightened all of the other flavors and the lentils were awesome with the extra kick of heat!

Amazon Reviews of Amys Low Sodium Lentil Soup

Some of the positive comments reviewers left include:

  • Initially, I purchased Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup at the local grocery, loved it, then discovered the brand was offered on Amazon. I found the original to be a little heavy in sodium, so I opted for the light version. Now, I’m completely addicted.
  • I’ve used Amy’s reduced sodium lentil and lentil vegetable soup for years, and they are delicious. 
  • This soup is absolutely delicious. Great to have on hand. Can be eaten alone or over rice, or extra vegetables can be added. I like that it is not high in sodium as so many canned soups are.

Almost all of the negative reviews were due to customers receiving dented and damaged cans of soup.  There were very few negative reviews of the soup itself.  Some of the comments from the negative reviews include:

  • I usually eat the regular lentil soup by Amy’s, but they were out so I ordered the low sodium version. Clearly, the sodium makes it tasty, because this was nasty. 
  • I wouldn’t serve this as a dogs dinner! Absolutely no flavor with a nasty smell that clings to your nostrils like poison.
  • I will get right to the point, this soup is tasteless and not worth the money. Healthier foods should have some taste, this has none.
