Gluten-Free Soup Review
Delicious Thai Curry Soup from Kettle Cuisine

This soup is really, really good! My wife and I both tried this for the first time recently, and we were absolutely amazed it was a "prepared" product. We both commented that if we had been served this soup at a restaurant, we would have enjoyed it and never suspected it came out of the freezer! And, that is saying something, since we both enjoy a variety of Asian / Thai cuisine.
Here is how Kettle Cuisine describes this wonderful Gluten-Free Thai-Curry Chicken soup:
All natural chicken, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, bell peppers and brown rice are combined with aromatic green curry, lemongrass and coconut milk in our made-from-scratch chicken stock to create a perfect balance of authentic Southeast Asian flavors.I think the description is accurate, as I believe they really managed to come up with a near-perfect balance of flavors. I could distinctly detect the lemongrass in among the curry spices and the coconut-infused base, and the synergistic flavors were quite pleasing. My only complaint (not at all specific to this product) is that I wish the sodium-levels were reduced some (vs. the current 560mg/bowl), but I also understand why the salt is there and how it will help the flavor-appeal for many consumers — we just happen to be oddballs that do not add salt to most things we cook.
I found the soup enjoyable and will eat it again... a little added salt will not keep me away from this, and certainly makes up for the preparation simplicity! The product comes in a 10-oz frozen container that you simply microwave for 3-4 minutes (time may vary a bit depending on your microwave); no thawing is required... you just take it from your freezer (where it has a nice, long shelf-life/freezer-life of a year or just over), place it in the microwave, and heat.
Delicious Soup, in a Hurry...Bottom line: I can recommend this soup since it is a high-quality gluten-free product. As with any product, personal preferences may vary, but I feel pretty comfortable thinking this soup will appeal to anyone that enjoys Southeast Asian inspired flavors and cuisine. It was delightful! And, it just happens to be gluten-free! The soup happens to be dairy-free also, if that is a concern.
