For the last few months I have been trying out lots of soups from the brand Glorious. I’ve been spirited away on exotic adventures just from a bowlful of their Vietnamese Supergreen Soup and I have enjoyed many bowls of Butternut squash ( my permanent favourite ) on a gloomy winter afternoon.
There are some things you probably don’t know about Glorious. Like the fact that eight of their soups are gluten free! I’m lucky in that I don’t have any intolerances but my youngest can’t have gluten,dairy or soya so I know how difficult it can be to find tasty, healthy foods. The Gluten Free Soup range includes:
My favourite, New England Butternut squash:
Goan Tomato & Lentil:
Texas Four Bean Chilli:
Mumbai Lentil & Chickpea:
Singapore Crushed Tomato:
Cuban Creamed Corn:
Fragrant Thai Carrot:
West African Chicken:
But what do they taste like?
I have personally carried out the research for you and I can tell you they are all delicious but my top 3 are:
1. New England Butternut Squash has been my favourite for ages, its so full of flavour and comforting. I love it! Roasted squash with cumin mix to make a soup which tastes thick and indulgent yet is less than 1% fat.
2. Fragrant Thai Carrot – this is a fairly new one to me but oh wow its delicious.Lemongrass, ginger, chilli and a little coconut combine to make a really heady exotic flavour.
3.Texan Four Bean Chilli – I have enjoyed this a few times lately and its so filling, I serve mine with a sprinkle of cheese but its also good with a few tortilla chips to dip in! Its jam packed with beans and spices and it feels like a proper meal, filling and hearty.
Three of the soups above are also dairy free ( The Mumbai, Singapore and Fragrant Thai ) which is great if you have multiple allergies or are vegan and also gluten free. I find sometimes that foods that are free from are also lacking in flavour or substance but you would eat these without even guessing they were gluten free. They are filling and nutritious, low fat and tasty.
I have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Glorious and my time as an ambassador for them. Its certainly made my work lunches more interesting, in fact the hardest part has been choosing which flavour to go for next.
