You have made a fantastic tasting soup for your freezer but unfortunately sometimes freezing it in a huge batch means you end up with leftovers as well when you have taken it from the freezer. And sometimes it sounds good to just have a cup of soup for lunch, without having to make it for the entire family either! So what you can do instead is to freeze your soup in single serving sized portions so that you can grab just one or two at a time for a quick meal or even for lunches.
First allow your soup to cool slightly, then pour the soup into paper cups, then freeze. Once it has frozen, pop a single portion soups out of the paper cups and into a freezer bag. Be sure to label the freezer bag, because frozen soups and stews often look all the same in the freezer.
If you prefer, you can wrap them while they are still in their paper cups. But don’t forget, that you cannot put most paper cups in the microwave long enough for defrosting and cooking your soup.
