To this day, I think of Amy’s Kitchen as the darling of the natural food industry. As conglomerates gobbled up everything in site, Amy’s remained a family-owned business, and became the nation’s leader in natural frozen foods. But their shelf-stable items should not be forgotten. Amy’s Dairy-Free Organic Soups are a personal favorite. Some of their soups do contain milk, but over 30 of them are vegan! This includes some of their newer creamy bisques. For your pantry stocking efforts, I have all of them detailed below.
Amy’s Organic Soups come in 34 Dairy-Free and Vegan Varieties

Our Amy’s Organic Soup Reviews
Vegan Chunky Tomato Bisque (pictured below)
This was my most recently sampling, and I was impressed. Amy’s has a tomato bisque with milk, but they’ve since released this vegan variety with a touch of coconut cream for richness. The flavor is bold, yet pure and perfectly salted. I found it to be just a touch too sweet (they really could tone down the organic sugar added), but it tempers well with add-ins or bread for dipping.
This soup has a heat that sneaks up on you … the kind that makes you keep eating, quickly, to keep it from catching up with your taste buds.I loved the flavor, though my timid taste buds couldn’t continue to eat this soup straight up. To tame the heat, I made a meal for two out of the single can, pouring it atop two bowls filled with a base of brown rice and steamed sweet potato chunks. The soup itself contains black beans, potatoes, carrots, and corn all in a spicy, tomato base. On its own, if you can handle the kick, the entire can would make a good light meal for one.
While both Tony and I enjoy butternut squash, anything involving a puree typically reminds us of baby food. Plus, while butternut squash itself has a light sweetness, most brands of butternut soup tend to load up the ingredients with syrupy sweeteners. Fortunately, Amy’s remedied both of these issues by thinning the squash to a smooth and soupy consistency, and only adding a hint of evaporated cane juice. The sugar enhanced the natural sweetness without overloading my taste buds. That said, the overall flavor is just slightly lacking… something that perhaps just a pinch of cayenne would fix.
Sadly, my first thought was, “hmm, needs salt.” Resisting the urge I reached for the pepper grinder instead. Both Tony and I thought this was a good move. While I often find Amy’s Chili (even the medium) a bit too spicy, this soup was on the bland side and lacked zing. Even after the peppering, the soup was still shouting for an additional herb or spice, but I couldn’t quite make out which one. Cumin? Paprika? Rosemary? Perhaps some future experimentation will tell. Beyond the flavor, I liked the heartiness of this soup. Rich with lentils, and light on liquid, I could easily fill up on a whole can. But instead, I served it over brown rice, making a little lunchtime meal for two.
This was a meal in a soup! A generous hand with the coconut milk makes this soup rich and provides a flavor base that is reminiscent of mild curry – perfectly warm and lightly spicy. In terms of consistency, it was mostly soup, with just a few bits of sweet potatoes, green beans, shiitakes, and meaty tofu to break up the fluidity. Since the additions were sparse, I added some cooked brown rice, a small diced and steamed sweet potato, and a cup of spinach. It was a perfect match with Thai restaurant-quality goodness. While I love to make my own curries and coconut soups, this is a worthwhile shortcut purchase for a quick and easy dinner.

Amy's Soups - Great Taste and Healthy for You
I am a single guy and don’t have much time to cook with my schedule. Amy’s soups are fantastic and not overly salted but still taste great. For those who crave salt they need to understand that most people get used to too much salt and keep on needing a lot to get the same taste. That’s not healthy for you in the long run especially getting older. Salt is often used as an excuse to cover up poorly made products. I often recommend Amy’s soups to my patients in health care. The Black Bean Vegetable is incredible. I want to try the new Red Bean and Vegetable but I can’t find it at HEB stores in Texas. Let me know how I can buy it!
All pretty bland
Not much kick. Is salt really what makes soup great? I guess so. Go Campbells.
Response from Go Dairy Free
Yep, it sure is.
Thanks for the Review!
Please remember if you’re posting here: we’re reviewing the *ARTICLE* not the actual SOUP itself…
A huge thanks to the author for putting in the work so that we don’t have to♡
Chunky tomato bisque
My husband and I love Amy’s light in sodium soups especially the Chunky tomato bisque. We hope you will make more soups that are light in sodium since I need to keep my salt content down to a heart condition. Keep up the good work! We wish there were more frozen entrees with low sodium.
Healthy and Delicious
I’ve been enjoying Amy’s soups for quite a few years. Her soups are the only ones I can eat without having a chemical reaction. They are so delicious in filling, please don’t ever stop making them.
My favorite canned soup. The Southwestern Vegetable is so yummy, I could eat 2 cans in one sitting, but I won’t.
Amy's Soup reviews
Thank you so much for your great review! Amy’s is always my favorite 🙂 Keep up the great work!
I live on them
I love the lentil, the minestone, the tomato bisque, the portabello mushroom, no chicken noodle, I love them all!!!
Lentil, low and salt, vegetable,
Husband goes to Costco, a case of this soup. These 2 are terrible. How can I fix them.
Maybe some of the other are better, coconut, peas, anything but these might be better. Any ideas on how to fix them. Put roasted tomato soup in it , was ok.
