It’s been said that homemade chicken noodle soup warms our heart and soul; imparts the comfort of home and makes us feel infinitely better when we aren’t feeling our best. While I believe all of this may be true, I know that when I’m not feeling my best the last thing I want to do is put my apron on and make some soup.

Naturally, a canned version that takes minutes to heat, sounds very promising but the flavor can often be lacking. I’ve never been a fan of  the “chicken” in canned soup either but when I was feeling under-the-weather this week and in the mood for some chicken noodle soup, I decided to try out the Amy’s vegan version.

Fan of:

  • good chicken soup flavor, without the chicken
  • non-mushy noodles
  • low in calorie
  • requires nothing more than a few minutes in the microwave
  • the tofu “chicken” – I wasn’t expecting to like these but they turned out to be a nice addition and of course add to the protein content
  • it’s vegan!

Wished there:

  • wasn’t so much sodium (but alas it is a canned food)
  • was some saltine crackers that came along with it, I was majorly pining for some ;)

By the way, holding a ridiculous amount of ridiculously cute (but sick) babies and kids, was SO worth getting sick for. But next time I hope to get the soup just because its cold outside – or because I’ve gone back to Haiti and babies are involved :)

    I’ve had some of the other Amy’s soups but never Chicken Noodle. Odd since chicken noodle soup is my go to soup. I’m going to pick up some next time I’m in the store.

    I’ve heard so many good things about Amy’s products, I love having canned soup on hand for those days when your not feeling well or have enough time to cook your own. I’m going to pick this up, thanks for sharing! :)

    Oooo I do like the Amy’s brand pea soup, but don’t eat the chicken noodle.

    I wish canned soups weren’t so high in sodium as well! It is ridiculous!

    xxoo

    I just found a can of this in the cabinet. I was looking to see what others thought about this “no chicken” concept when I found your site. I, too, enjoyed this soup more than I thought I would. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of your reviews!
