Just like fresh asparagus, it’s also possible to freeze asparagus soup. You might have cooked too much of it, causing you to have leftovers. There’s no need to throw it away, as you can freeze asparagus soup for up to 6 months.
Freezing your asparagus soup
If you’re looking to freeze your asparagus soup, we will teach you how to do so in this step-by-step guide.
1. Cook your soup
The first step is to cook your soup like you normally would, if you do not already have the leftovers. After cooking it, let it cool down until it’s at room temperature, which usually takes about an hour or two.
Not letting your asparagus soup cool down before freezing it could lead to disrupting the frozen state of other foods in your freezer.
2. Grab containers or freezer bags
Grab a couple of containers or freezer bags to start making portions. This makes your life a lot easier, as you can’t just take a part of soup out of the freezer if it’s frozen together in a single bag or container.
Airtight containers are what most people opt for, but if you don’t have a lot of space in your freezer, it’s better to pick a freezer bag. This is because you can take out excess air, unlike containers which take up more space.
3. Fill your freezer bags or containers
The last step is to fill your freezer bags or containers with the right portions. Divide them into portions, and just pour the soup (or use a spoon) inside the bag or container, after which you can store them in the freezer.
After storing your asparagus soup in the freezer, it will last about half a year before it goes bad. You can easily detect this by rating the odor.
Caution: when using freezer bags, don’t fill them to the top. Liquids can expand when they’re frozen, so keep that in mind.
