We figured out how to freeze soup in the most convenient way!

Make soup now and reheat later.

Check out this genius way to freeze soups that will allow you to easily heat up a warm single-serving meal whenever you’d like! This technique is super convenient to make the soup ahead, freeze, and reheat later. This is also perfect for any leftovers.

This is a great solution if you want to grab a bowl of homemade soup to warm up without reheating the entire pot. And of course, this idea can work with other meals such as chili, casseroles, and homemade sauces.

Silicone trays to the rescue!

I used a silicone muffin pan to freeze this food, but we also found some Souper Cubes freezer trays that are specifically designed for this method! But if you don’t want to shell out, check out the slightly cheaper silicone freezer tray option. If you are using a muffin tray, after the soup is solid, transfer it to a Ziplock bag to take up less space in the freezer.

Hip tips for freezing soup:

  • Make sure you clear up some space in your freezer before placing the tray in. After the soup is frozen, it’ll be much easier to store as you can transfer them to small Ziplock bags!
  • If you’re using a silicone tray, consider placing it on a flat cookie sheet first to make it stable and avoid spills in the freezer
  • For soup larger than one serving size, you can use a large Ziplock bag to fill and freeze the soup flat, and then break into pieces before reheating.

    This is a great method but I find it time consuming since you need a lot of molds or you have to wait for hours for the first batch to freeze. You also need a flat area in your freezer to set them on, which mean you need to have room. I like to do that for my stock because i get a perfect 1 cup i can use for recipes. However, for freezing larger quantities and soups I just use zip lock bags and stock them nicely in the freezer or containers.

      Great idea for stock, and the ziplock bag idea. Thanks Anna!

  2. Pdxsong

    Awesome idea, thanks!

    I put a zip lock in square rubbermaid containers to freeze. Then once frozen I can pull the bag out and it’s frozen in a square shape so it’s easier to store.

    I also make double batches of crackpot meals and freeze one batch uncooked in a ziploc. Then I can just cut the bag and dump into the crackpot and set it and go to work while it cooks. Works well for just about any recipe. Not cooked, but at least you aren’t trying to assemble ingredients when your not even awake yet.

      CrackPot! LOL

      The square rubbermaid is a great idea! I freeze in ziplocks and try to get them in a flat shape but sometimes they end up very odd because they jostle when the drawer freezer gets shut and freeze in hard to store shapes. I’ll have to try that!

    • jenny

      you crack me up

    I’ve been doing this for a while and love it! We have a chest freezer in the garage, so I keep an open area in the kitchen freezer for freezing in muffin pans or laying bags flat. I leave overnight and transfer to the garage freezer in the morning! I also freeze stock, tomato paste (who uses a whole can?), homemade baby food, and goat’s milk for soap making in various sized silicone molds. I love not wasting as much, and having pre measured goods saves me time in the kitchen!

    Wow! Great tip!

    I have to pack lunch for school so this is great for when I don’t want to starve myself lol

    When I prep for slow cooker soup, I would prepare double ( so much of extra produce from summer) I would have everything ready for the crock pot next time. Great for days you found special on certain produce. ( Meat can be added later also).

      Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    I do this with the large jars of pestso sauce from Costco and also the jars of green chilies from Costco. I use a silicone mold, which I originally bought to make hot chocolate bombs, and it works perfectly! Once frozen I just pop them out and store in a zip lock bag.

    There’s a hidden gem in one of these comments from 2016…for a laugh check it out…
