Freezing Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Asked by suzisu. Answered on 27th January 2014

Full question

Made the Broccoli and Stilton soup today, absolutely delicious and so easy to make. One question, can I freeze it?

Our answer

Most soups freeze well but soups that contain cheese, such as Nigella's Broccoli And Stilton Cheese Soup (from Nigella Express and on the Nigella website) can be a little more difficult and if possible we would avoid freezing it. However if you do have to freeze the soup then chill the soup and put into airtight containers (allowing a little space for expansion as the soup freezes). Freeze for up to 2 months.

Thaw the soup overnight in the fridge. The soup may look a little watery when it has thawed but should come together again as it reheats. Reheat the soup carefully over a low to medium heat, whisking frequently. Be careful not to let the soup boil as the cheese can cause the soup to burn on the bottom of the pan. However do make sure that the soup is piping hot (with wisps of steam, but not actually boiling) before serving it.
