I don't know why I like this stuff. I don't usually eat soup, and I have never asked for lentil soup in particular. But for some unknown reason, I once grabbed one of these at the grocery store and it was good. Nile Spice deserves a lot of credit for making something I will eat which does not involve cheese or sugar.

The directions say you only add boiling water and cover. However, I thought the soup was a little bland eating it as is. I found the best tasting way to eat this soup is to add bacon bits to the soup prior to adding the water. I use left over real strips of bacon that I've cut up and it adds a ton of flavor to the soup. Add as much or as little bacon as you want. I usually add about 2 or 3 full strips of bacon to it. After you add the boiling water realize the plastic seal at the top isn't very good with a seal and let's the steam out and the seal can come completely off. So I always would have a hand ready to help seal the steam in or use a small pot and put it on top of the cup to hold the steam in. Says it only takes around 5 minutes to thicken but I usually would do this while watching tv and would wait around 15 minutes for it to thicken and cool enough to eat it. Also before eating I'll add to taste some creole seasoning salt from Tony Chachares. You can also add in some frozen or left over corn, peas, or carrots before adding the boiling water. These veggies go great with the soup and spices. Doing these extra additions make a very tasty soup! One is usually not enough to fill me up by itself for long so I usually eat something else with it or have a large drink to go along with it to help fill me up. The container the soup comes in isn't very sturdy, you can microwave it if you have to reheat the soup for some reason but I wouldn't cook the soup in the microwave, well it can be cooked in the microwave but the container might be a bit flimsy afterwards and awkward to hold. I usually do the recommended method which is to boil water first (I use a small pot on the stove) then add to the soup. In any case the soup especially after the additions is very thick and tasty!

Vegan. Natural. Low calorie. Low fat. Thick & hearty for an instant soup. Great lentil veggie taste. Easy, lightweight take-along for anywhere you can get or make hot water. I love vegan soups. An instant soup along with a few pieces of crispbread in a ziplock bag makes a great lunch. Instant soups are also a great flavor maker for your own soup creations. Try using one cup of instant soup as a flavorful broth or base to add with beans and/or your favorite fresh veggies. Use your imagination and enjoy. Easy and fun. Prepare the instant soup and then add to the simmering or pre-cooked bigger pot containing the other ingredients. Heat together, stir, and serve. 170 calories, 11g protein, and 540mg sodium per cup. When preparing the cup of soup, it is important to let it stand re-covered as recommended for 5+ minutes and stir well. Verified all vegan ingredients including the 'natural flavors' with Nile Spice Consumer Affairs on 2009-01-29. [Inquired about all their instant soups as to which were vegan.] Also really like Nile Spice Minestrone Soup, Low Fat, 1.5-Ounce Cups (Pack of 12). This review is out there for those for whom this makes a difference. See all of my reviews and the vegancompassion Profile for more great choices.

This is a great meal for lunch at work. Just add hot water, stir, and wait a few minutes. Very delicious!

The containers are pretty sturdy, but I have punctured the top before from carrying an unopened cup loose in my backpack for a few days. As long as I remember to take the cup out after I've transported it to work, the containers hold up well.

To make the water fill line easier to see, I usually make a long indent in the cup with my fingernail. Also, make sure to stir the mixture very well. It's quite unpleasant to come across a dry spot in your soup because it wasn't fully dissolved.

These are healthy and convenient soup-in-a-cups. Add hot water, stir, and wait five minutes. You get a tasty cup of soup for a good price. You get a good variety of spices, compared to other "soup-in-a-cup" products.

I've been eating these lentil cups for years. A bit high in sodium but full of fiber and protein, leaving me full from a little cup of nicely seasoned lentils. The seasoning is a bit of a mild curry spice. There are a few veggie bits in the mix. The cup is light weight and can be easily packed to just add hot water. When adding hot water and putting the paper lid back down, it is good to have a spoon to hold the paper down so the soup has a bit of a seal while it sits for a few minutes before eating.

I purchased a case of these Nile Spice Lentil Soups to keep in my office for quick lunches. I was very pleased with them overall. Making the soup is simple; I boiled water in my microwave in a glass measuring cup, added the water to the soup container, and then let it sit covered for five minutes.

The soup is thick and tasty. I really like lentil soup, so this flavor hit the spot for me. It has a mild spicy flavor courtesy of the turmeric - I often added a bit of hot sauce to pump up the heat a bit. It may be a bit thick for some people, but you can always add more water to make it thinner. The soup has been pureed, which may not appeal to some eaters. However, it also is very very filling, especially considering that the entire container is only 170 calories.

As is the case with most packaged soup, it is relatively high in sodium - a serving contains 540 mgs, which is almost 1/4 of the recommended daily intake. So these are not the best option for someone on a low sodium diet. The soup does not taste particularly salty, although I did find that I enjoyed it more when I paired it with fresh vegetables and fruit. For me, these worked as a fast, filling lunch.
