Freezing Soup??

Hi everyone!

As you can probably tell from my recent posts, I am no Jamie Oliver lol!

I made my Spicy Cumin & Pumpkin soup tonight - it is soooo yummy! I made four portions, and now I'm thinking I may freeze it.

So......a) does this kind of soup freeze well, or does it come out really watery when you thaw it? b) do you have to defrost it thoroughly in the fridge before cooking again? c) can you microwave it to heat it back up again?

Sorry for what are probably daft questions!!!

All soups freeze fantastically. If you are making a creamy soup I would reccommend adding the cream after you have thawed it out. Creamy soups freeze better without the cream.

I am so glad you are not a Jamie Oliver . He is my least favourite chef lol.


b) do you have to defrost it thoroughly in the fridge before cooking again? c) can you microwave it to heat it back up again?




It is always advisable to thaw out frozen food but I do just bung mine in the pan from frozen and cook it to boiling point.

Your questions are far from daft. Very sensible in fact.

I'm really into home made soups atm, especially good for work now the weather is turning cold. I make loads, portion them up and chuck them in the freezer and they alway turn out fine.

Fab tips Allie. I always defrost mine first, but after reading what you do I shall nuke them from frozen in future :D

I read best to freeze them leaving about 1/2 inch gap at the top of the container to allow for expansion or something or other. I defrost mine 24 hours before and they can remain in the kitchen or the fridge. Then heat as required. You can do them in a pan or the microwave. I prefer the latter as already had to clean the pan once;)
