Tasted dreadful - spoiled soup
Use this often with added stock and always had good soup. Always remove potatoes since they never taste good, but remaining veg usually fine. . This time soup was inedible - the veg seemed "off" which did not seem obvious when pack opened, but taste was dreadful making soup inedible and had to be thrown out. The veg was in date and I used stock from freshly cooked ham. Having read reviews several people would agree with my comments. I have always found this a convenient method to produce decent soup - not any more, and will notbuy again.
Simmered for over an hour but was still hard and inedible
Potatoes should not be included
Gutted to discover potato is now included... Have been buying this for years and for diabetics, carbohydrates are to be avoided. Used to be Carrot, Swede, Onion etc.... no potatoes.
Horrible , don’t know what you’ve added to it but the taste is awful
Used to be much better
This proved to be a bit of disappointment, used to buy this last winter and really enjoyed it when liquidized was lovely and thick and full of flavour but now it is very thin and watery when made as per the instructions.
Fantastic in soup!
Fantastic in soup (made with red lentils and Knorr vegetable stock cubes)
Please Sir, I want some more!
Use this every week as an easy lunchtime Slimming World friendly meal. Why can I not get it any more?! Please bring it back!
Good for quick soups.
I froze this for a month ready for Autumn soups, but rained today so on with the butternut soup. It has made my soup taste sooo delish. One more in my shop ready for the pumpkins.
If consistency could be improved.Allergen problem.
Very inconsistent as to what mixtures of vegetables are actually in this.Two bags supplied at the same time were very different.The potato is not pleasant in this,I always remove it before cooking as otherwise all you can taste through a full pot of soup is Sodium Metabisulphite which is a potato preservative.Not an issue for me it is however an identified allergen so should be stated on the website,its on the packaging though thats not helpful when online ordering.
Add extras for great soup. Keep some in freezer
This is a great base for soups but not a soup by itself. I use one pack of the veg soup mix, two bags of the Butternut squash & sweet potato soup mix. Home made chicken stock (boil up a cooked chicken carcass) with a few bits of chicken that fall off the bone. Add herbs and spices to taste with a touch of curry powder and simmer for several hours. Blitz with a stick blender. It makes about 15 portions which I freeze. When we had builders in a while back I made 2 lots a week and the builders always requested a mug of soup every lunchtime. To those who only gave it one star please try again adding extra ingredients. It is a great time saver. PLEASE TESCO WHY HAVE YOU DISCONTINUED IT???
