Frequently asked questions
Can you refrigerate leftover potato soup?
Yes. You can store your potato soup in the refrigerator for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
Can you freeze potato soup?
Yes, but it depends on the type of potato soup. Soups with any kind of cream or milk base don't hold up well in the freezer. They tend to separate, resulting in a grainy texture when thawed and reheated.
Additionally, soups that use non-dairy milks like almond or coconut milk, hold up a bit better, but the texture still won't be the same.
On the other hand, potato soups with no dairy freeze pretty well and can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months in freezer safe containers or zip lock freezer bags.
