Cream-based soups are notoriously tricky to reheat because the cream can separate if it gets too hot.

To reheat a cream-based soup, follow these steps:

  1. Pour the soup into a saucepan and heat it over low heat. Be sure to stir the soup constantly to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Once the soup is hot you can remove it from the heat and stir in a splash of milk or cream. This will help to smooth out the texture of the soup and prevent it from separating.
  3. If the soup is still too thick, you can add a little bit of chicken, or vegetable broth to thin it out.

Seafood soups are delicate and can easily become overcooked if reheated improperly.

  1. Pour the soup into a saucepan and heat it over low heat.
  2. Once the soup is hot, reduce the heat to low and simmer it for a few minutes to ensure that the vegetables are heated through. Be sure to stir gently.
  3. If the soup is too thick, you can add a little bit of chicken or seafood broth to thin it out.

Here are some other Methots for reheating our soups.


  1. The microwave is the quickest and easiest way to reheat soup. To reheat soup in the microwave, transfer it to a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a microwave-safe lid or plate.
  2. Heat on medium power for 2 minutes, then stir the soup and continue to heat in 30-second intervals until it is thoroughly warmed.
  3. Be sure to stir the soup between each interval to ensure even heating.

Instant Pot

If you have an Instant Pot, you can use it to reheat soup quickly and easily. To reheat soup in an Instant Pot, add the soup to the pot and select the “Soup” function.

Set the time for 5 minutes and let the Instant Pot do the rest. Once the soup is heated, release the pressure manually and serve.

Slow Cooker

Reheating soup in a slow cooker is a great option if you want to keep the soup warm for an extended period.

To reheat soup in a slow cooker, add the soup to the pot and set the temperature to “Low” or “Warm.” Stir occasionally to ensure even heating.

This method may take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours depending on the amount of soup you are reheating.



If you plan to eat your soup within the next few days, storing it in the refrigerator is the best option. Be sure to let your soup cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container.

Glass or plastic containers with tight-fitting lids work well, as do freezer-safe Tupperware or Souper Cubes.

A general rule of thumb is that soup can be stored in the refrigerator for about three days, but you should always taste your dish before deciding to reheat.


If you want to freeze soup, it’s important to use freezer-safe containers. Avoid using glass containers that are not labeled as freezer-safe, as they may crack or shatter when exposed to extreme temperatures. Plastic containers or freezer bags work well.

When freezing soup, it’s best to freeze individual portions rather than one large batch. This makes it easier to thaw and reheat only what you need.

Souper Cubes or other freezer containers with individual compartments are a great option for this.


When it’s time to thaw your soup, there are a few methods you can use. The easiest way is to transfer your frozen soup from the freezer to the refrigerator and let it thaw overnight. This method ensures that your soup thaws evenly and safely.

If you’re in a hurry, you can also thaw your soup in the microwave. Be sure to transfer your soup to a microwave-safe container and heat it on the defrost setting. Stir the soup frequently to ensure that it thaws evenly.

Avoid thawing your soup on the countertop, as this can lead to bacteria growth and spoilage.
