CAN YOU FREEZE BROCCOLI CHEESE SOUP?

You can freeze Broccoli Cheese soup, but it is a bit trickier. Because of the dairy base, when it freezes, it can separate into watery layers. But, don’t stress, this will remedy during the reheating process.

Before freezing, make sure to cool the soup to room temperature. Put the soup in an airtight container, leaving room for the soup to expand when it freezes. If you want to save room, I love using Freezer Ziplock Bags. They can lay flat in the freezer.

It will stay good up to 2 months in the freezer.
