Best Vegetable Soup: Our Top 5 Are Warm, Cozy, and Full Of Veggies

The best canned vegetable soup is savory, salty, and chock-full of vegetables, of course! Good store-bought vegetable soups can be hard to find, though. I don’t even typically like vegetable soup, despite being an absolute freak for vegetables. Vegetable soup can often be bland and mushy.

The soups listed below, however, are packed with flavor and plenty of toothsome vegetables. They have me rethinking my distaste for this actually tasty soup. Whether you’re looking for something classic or nouveau, this list has a vegetable soup that you will love. Crack open a can of the best vegetable soups this cold-weather season!

Best of the Best

Amy’s Organic Southwestern Fire Roasted Vegetable Soup

Imagine the best vegetable soup you ever tasted had a baby with a perfectly spiced tortilla soup—that’s Amy’s Southwest Vegetable Soup in a nutshell. It’s wonderfully seasoned and would be great on its own, but would also be great topped with shredded cheddar, diced raw onion, and a squeeze of fresh lime. You could even scoop it up with some tortilla chips. I love a vegetable soup that is versatile. This one isn’t just versatile, it’s bursting with flavor and was the best canned vegetable soup we tried during our taste test.

Best Reduced Sodium

Amy’s Organic French Country Vegetable Soup

I’ll say what we’re all thinking: All vegetable soups should have beans. It makes it so much heartier and more delicious! That’s one of the big reasons I loved Amy’s Reduced Sodium French Country Vegetable Soup. It also includes long-grain rice, which makes it so filling and comforting. I could totally see this soup sustaining you as you tend to your sheep in the fields of the French countryside. Please don’t come for me if you’re a French farmer. I’m a comedian who lives in L.A., so I’m just taking a guess.

Best for Veg Lovers

Trader Joe’s Garden Vegetable Soup

If you want a vegetable soup that is heavy on the vegetables, grab a jar of Trader Joe’s Garden Vegetable Soup. It has a great mix of different veggies, making it the best vegetable soup for veg fanatics. It’s packed with sweet potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, and leafy greens. A bonus feature is that this soup comes in a glass jar instead of a can. The reusability factor makes it easy to store your leftovers. Keep it after you’re done with your soup and you can store anything in it. Tasty and eco-friendly!

Best with Pasta

Progresso Vegetable Soup

In my opinion, pasta is a welcome addition to vegetable soup, that’s why I like this classic vegetable soup from Progresso. It’s very mild and has big chunks of veggies floating in the broth. This is the best canned vegetable soup to have in the pantry if you come down with a cold. It has more oomph than chicken noodle but is still plain enough to soothe an upset stomach or stuffy nose. Plus, you can find Progresso in almost every grocery store and it’s often on sale. A win for affordability.

Best for Veg-Haters

Campbell’s Vegetable Soup

I had no clue that many vegetable soups weren’t vegetarian. I mean, it’s vegetable soup! Wrong. If you don’t eat meat, make sure to check your labels. Campbell’s Vegetable Soup, for instance, is made with beef stock. It’s super rich and meaty, and because of that, I’m naming it the best canned vegetable soup for veg-haters. If you’re looking for the lightness and nutrition of vegetable soup but can’t change your meat-centric ways, grab a can of this!
