It's often on the coldest, gloomiest of winter's days when we're feeling too lazy to get ourselves in the kitchen, and that's where frozen soup saves the day. From classic carrot soup to minty garlic scape and a fully loaded vegan baked potato option, there's no shortage of soup recipes that can be enjoyed both now and later.

Not all soups reheat well after being frozen—noodles, rice, and starches like potatoes may end up becoming mushy—so blended options are the way to go. To cut down on prep for other recipes, you can also freeze stocks like vegetable, beef, chicken, and Japanese dashi, so you always have them on hand. Your future self with thank you!
