There’s nothing like a delicious soup to warm you up on a chilly night! These are some of my family’s favourites and the most convenient way to freeze them.
When the days get shorter and the nights become colder, it’s the perfect time to serve up soup for dinner. The whole family will enjoy these warming meals. Add some crusty bread to encourage any reluctant kids as they will love the novelty of ‘dunking’ at the dinner table!
One of my favourite things about soup recipes is how easily they lend themselves to freezing. This means I can make a double batch and freeze leftovers for another night. While I used to freeze a large portion in a big container, this wasn’t always ideal because it took a long time to thaw and sometimes I only needed to feed two or three family members.
Now, I use Souper Cubes to freeze my soup. These innovative, stackable food freezing trays are a game changer! Designed specifically for freezing in various portion sizes, they are incredibly convenient. They’re also made of really durable silicone, so the flexibility makes it super easy to press out your frozen blocks.
For soups, I like to use the Souper Cube – Two Cup for adult portions because it’s a really good serving size. For younger children, the One-Cup would be a good portion size. If you like to make your own stock or broth, there are smaller portion sizes too. Souper Cubes are also amazing for making baby and toddler food – we will bring you a seperate blog on that soon!
