23 Freezable soups to enjoy this winter

When it’s freezing outside, settling down with a delicious and warm bowl of soup is just what the doctor ordered. Planning ahead with freezable recipes is a surefire way to simplify life around mealtime. This winter, try any of these hearty soups that are freezer-friendly to use at a later time.

How to reheat frozen soup

It’s best to defrost frozen soups slowly, so try to place yours in the fridge the day before you plan to eat it. If you can’t do that, then defrost by placing the bag of frozen soup in a large bowl and running lukewarm water over it until thawed. When it comes time to heat the soup, do so slowly, and stir often. Add some water to chunky broth-based soups or heavy cream to creamy soups if it seems they aren’t as liquidy as their original versions.
