I made way too much vegetable beef soup and was wondering if I could freeze it?
Absolutely! You can freeze it in serving size portions if you want, so you don't have to defrost a big batch and then up freezing it again later.
If you have pasta or rice in it, it will tend to absorb more of the broth, and so you may need to add more broth or water when reheating, but otherwise it'll be fine.
Amy thank you so much. That is good to hear because it would be so nice to have homemade soup already made and just take it out of the freezer and heat it up.
I will be freezing it in individual portions. Thanks again.
Don't forget to leave some headspace for expansion.
You're very welcome!! Back when I was organized, I used to cook all day on a Saturday or Sunday, and then freeze it up in portions for week night meals. John's Beef Barley Soup was a good one for that~course, if DH was home, it might not last long enough to get frozen, lol!
Pat is right too~don't fill the containers completely full.
Potatoes don't freeze well so I'd take them out if you have them in the soup. I used to freeze soup all the time and it's great to have that to bring out when you want! Enjoy!!
two soups that I frequenty freeze is the Taco Soup and White Chili. I love soups and I freeze in small contianers to eat when I am "starving". I also freeze beans for later use.
