Servings per package: 4

Review: This refrigerated soup-concentrate offers crisp, tender chunks of vegetables, firm noodles and low-fat varieties. Geez, my Mom can't even do that. We tried the minestrone and chicken-noodle flavors (chicken tortellini and clam chowder are also available) and were amazed at the quality. The soup thickened within 10 minutes, as promised, and the fresh taste and spices distinguished it from soup in a can. My only complaint? The packaging. The plastic pouch isn't recyclable, and squeezing the concentrate out was messy.
