Like homemade

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

I make a lot of soup from scratch and our favorite is lentil. With Progresso Lentil it is like getting homemade in a can. I can fool my family as long as they do not see the cans. The lentils are just right, not to hard nor to mushy. the seasoning is right on spot as is the vegetables.

Simple, hearty, flavorful, filling

By

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

Progresso makes a simple, well-made, hearty lentil soup for those who can appreciate this natural source of protein. The lentils still have the integrity of their texture, and in my opinion it has a subtle hint of the onion and tomato flavors. It is high in fiber and protein and low in fat and sugar, with a surprising amount of iron and no cholesterol. The negative side to these statistics is the sodium content -- 34% per serving, which is unfortunately common in canned convenience soups. If you can afford the sodium content by being conservative for the remainder of your day, then go ahead and enjoy this soup! It's extra yummy with additional mire poix (best sauteed to a softer texture to match the texture of the soup.)

A hearty, vegetarian soup.

By

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

Progresso's Lentil Soup is a delicious and satisfying vegetarian option. Lentils are rich in fiber and protein and are very filling, so the odds are that you won't even miss the meat. My one complaint with this soup is that it is a little boring, because there's not a lot of variety to it. We like to mix in a can of Progresso Minestrone to shake it up a little and give it a little more pizzazz.

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

This is a frequent star in my weekend lunches! When I want something filling, quick, and easy, this is the first place I go! It is really filling, even without a sandwich or crackers. It is very well flavored without being to spicy or complex. I recommend this to anyone looking for delicious food!

Yummy

By

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

I have never had lentils, but decided to try a variety of the healthier option soups out there. I absolutely loved this soup! It was great for lunch. I made the whole can, but I was full halfway through. There was a ton of flavor, lots of lentils, & just enough spinach. I normally prefer creamy soups, but this may be my new favorite soup. I've heard there may be sources of beef in the "natural flavors" listed so if you don't like that, you may want to give progresso a call to verify. For me, it's a yummy healthier lunch option & I'm definitely going to stock up!

Yummy-Homemade Taste

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

Love this lentil soup-You would never know it comes in a can. Always have it on hand in the cool Fall and especially the cold, snowy New York Weather. Nothing like a delicious soup to warm you up. We have it for dinner with grilled cheese or such and it is one of my husband's favorites. I love it for lunch or dinner. Like homemade- but no all day in the kitchen.

nutricious vegetable protein

By 

from Roanoke, VA

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

If you are vegetarian, vegan or just trying to cut back on meat, you need to get enough protein in your diet each day. Progresso Vegetable classics Lentil soup is an excellent way. This soup is delicious and full of fiber. There are 2 servings of soup per can. Each serving has 160 calories. And each serving of soup contains a full serving of vegetables and is also loaded with protein. Progresso Vegetable Classics Lentil soup helps you feel full which means you will take in less calories. This is a great staple to have on hand.

Very good and filling

By 

from Idaho Falls, ID

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

I bought 10 of these for the first time because they were on sale for a very good price.  I figured they would be good for food storage if nothing else. One night I decided to try it for a quick dinner and I've been hooked ever since. I really enjoyed the flavor and it filled me up. Great quick meal.

Delicious, Nutritious, Almost Perfect

By 

from Tallapoosa, GA

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

I would, without hesitation, give this soup 5 stars if not for the sodium content. Granted, it is  much lower in this than in other soups, but to me it could be even lower. (It's not low; it's just not as high as others, so in effect it is still high.)

That being said, this soup is absolutely delicious. I love lentils; to me, they are a comfort food -- they are so filling, so yummy, and require very little "fixing up" to make them taste good.

Less is more; let the natural flavors shine through!

Take out some of the sodium, Progresso, and you will have a perfect soup here. Hearty, good anytime, and the price is just right.

I prefer to make my own lentils, but for my back-up lentil plan, I always keep Progresso Lentil soup in the pantry. It's pretty close to homemade, and if it didn't have all that sodium, I might even prefer it over my own due to the convenience of not having to sort lentils.

Try sprinkling a bit of cheese on top for an added blast of protein and thickness (although it is already thick)

I usually eat my plain -- I don't even add crackers! (Ok, maybe I sneak in a grilled cheese sandwhich on occasion. )

Enjoy! Lentils are good and good for you; good job, Progresso!

Progresso Lentil Soup is surprisingly tasty.

Comments about Progresso Vegetable Classics - Lentil Soup:

We love Progresso lentil soup.  It is our favorite.  My 7 year-old daughter even loves it. It is great wih a little shredded cheese and scallions.  I love the fact that it doesn't have MSG and that it has lots of protein and fiber.
