- Like most soups, this carrot soup keeps well in the fridge for a few days and it can be frozen too. That makes it excellent candidate for make-ahead meal prep for routine meals as well as party and holiday menu.
- Let the soup cool down completely before storing. For refrigerator, I prefer to store it in air tight glass containers. It stays well for 5 days in refrigerator.
- You can freeze the soup in individual serving portions in freezer safe containers for up to 3 months. Defrost and reheat thoroughly.
