I always make a big pot of vegetable beef soup for my husband and I and then freeze it in meal size containers. It's great.

Yes! I have always frozen soups of all kinds. Not too sure about cream of soups, I think the cream would probably separate and go into little white dots through the soup.

Sure can! As "merlene" already said, we make extra big batches around here and freeze the rest, too. I also do this with chicken soup, split pea soup-- and really, anything with a chicken, beef or vegetable broth base, as long as there's no milk, cream or half-and-half in there anywhere.

Been there and done that and all I got was curdling when dairy is involved. The DH says the soup tastes even better the second time around--guess sitting up there in the freezer helps the flavors meld :)

Yes, you can freeze vegetable soup. I usually do it everytime we had a left over suop even chili. It because I don't want to waste the food.

Funny that I am reading that after just dipping up containers of veg. beef soup two days ago, and freezing. Now, today, I made a super good batch of semi-home made spaghetti sauce. I cooked up some crumbled mild Italian sausage, added onion, one large jar of prego, cans of tomato sauce, diced tomato, and seasoned with garlic, Italian mixed herbs, then a good pinch of oregano, and one of basil. Only mention this because as soon as it cools a bit, it too will go in the freezer in appropriate sized containers. We are in coastal AL., where it is about 98 or 99 degrees by day right now, and I don't want to cook every day. Like others have said, things without cream and such have always done very well for me. Hope this helps.

I like to make big batches of soups and sauces for the freezer, too. The one thing I don't include in my soups, though, is potatoes. For some reason when they're frozen the texture gets funny.

I freeze soup all the time. After the soup thaws, I do find it to be a little thick, but then I just add one cup of water and one bouillon cube (or canned broth).
