Great for Work!Nov 01, 2008
By Donna B
I have a hectic job that doesn't often allow me a lunch break so Dr. McDougall's products work out great for me. I follow a high protein diet and this Black Bean soup is loaded with both fiber and protein without sacrificing taste. Just add boiling or very hot water and you can easily eat it at your desk as it takes up about as much space as a large coffee mug. Many reviewers find the sodium content high and, as with most soups, it is. A good workaround to resolve this is to pour in about half of the flavor packet. There is minimal flavor change and a decrease (even though it may be slight) in sodium. I heartily recommend this soup for not only those on the go, but also for those who enjoy great soups.

For Instant Soup...it is a keeper!Oct 11, 2008
By Reviewer In Arizona
I am a retired chef. I walk & hike and it is getting cooler out so on my long trail days this is a great soup to carry along for a meal...just add boiling water...
It's a keeper in my cupboards.

Delicious and Relatively Healthy!Oct 30, 2006
Tasty, fiber-rich and low fat, this instant lunch is also very filling. The only thing holding me back from a perfect "5" rating is the relatively high sodium content, 660 mg. per package. However,considering the 28 grams of fiber (112% of the daily requirement), I guess the trade-off is worth it. Probably wouldn't taste as good without the salt anyway!

Vegan Natural ChoiceDec 12, 2009
Vegan. Natural. High protein. Nice black bean soup flavor. Becomes quick thick and hearty, especially for an instant cup type soup. Great with tortilla chips, wholegrain crackers, or a slice or two of crispbread. The lime and garlic flavor notes are mild and delicious. Great for warming up after any outdoor activity especially in chilly weather. Add a can of organic pintos (or other beans) and/or some diced veggies such as green bell peppers (or hot peppers) and tomatoes for added serving size. Can easy be used as a ready to go flavor maker for your own bean soup creations. Made with pre-cooked black beans, dehydrated veggies (garlic, onion, tomato, bell pepper), lime juice powder, cilantro, chipotle chili, cumin, coriander, black pepper, organic cane juice, yeast extract, natural flavors (vegan), and sea salt. Mix the flavor packet in the cup thoroughly before adding hot water. Let stand re-covered as recommended for 8+ minutes and then re-stir well. Also really like Dr. McDougall's Right Foods Vegan Tomato Basil Pasta Soup, Light Sodium, 1.3-Ounce Cups (Pack of 6). This review is out there for those for whom this makes a difference.

Delicious, great flavor, one of my favoritesFeb 17, 2007
By K. Frappier
This is one of my favorite flavors of Dr. McDougall's brand of soups and mixes. The texture is pleasing to me along with the spices. Yes, it's a dried soup mix so you can get clumps sometimes, but nothing a good stir with a spoon can't fix. Plus, the larger size soup cup means I can eat this with a little something extra to make a nice lunch. Oh, and if you are looking for a hearty lunch, try pouring this over rice or some other starch.
I'm thrilled to see this offered through Amazon. Check out the split pea cup, too, that's my other favorite.
Also, compared to the "Fantastic Food" brand soup , I've always found the Dr.McDougall soups to be thicker, have more spices, and be more filling. This is the perfect vegan cup of soup when you don't have time to bring/make your own. If you intend to make your own, check out Dr. McDougall's Quick and Easy cookbook.
