Tips for Freezing Soups

  • Choose broth or tomato based recipes
  • Avoid dairy and flour thickened soups
  • Be sure to freeze cooled soup
  • Add pasta  when you are serving – pasta sometimes gets mushy in the freezer
  • Slightly under cook vegetables, they will cook more when you reheat the soup
  • Leave room at the top of the container for the soup to expand, about 1 inch between soup and lid is good
  • Plastic freezer safe containers are best, but if you use glass, be sure it says freezer safe
  • Be sure to label the soup and add heating instructions
  • Freeze 2-3 months
  • Thaw in fridge overnight or cook from frozen
