How long does keto soup last in the fridge?

After whipping up one of these keto soup recipes, you can safely store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. First, transfer the leftover soup to an airtight container. Make sure that it has cooled down a bit. Then, place it in the fridge to cool completely. When you’re ready to enjoy a bowl, reheat your refrigerated soup in the microwave or on the stove. Some soups actually taste better the next day, so don’t let those extra servings go to waste! These Keto soup recipes make great leftovers for a quick lunch, snack, or to bring to the office.

Can you freeze homemade keto soup?

The soup actually freezes better than you might expect. Simply put your cooled soup in freezer bags or a freezer-safe glass or plastic container. Make sure to leave some room in the container to allow the soup to expand as it freezes. I always like to label my homemade frozen items with the name and date they were made. This way, you will know exactly when it has gone bad.

You can safely freeze your soup for up to a month. To reheat your frozen keto soup, transfer it to the fridge to let it defrost. Once it’s no longer totally frozen, you can heat it up on the stove or in the microwave. In a rush? Place your container of frozen soup in a warm water bath to speed up the process. Leave it in the warm water until the sides loosen up enough to move the soup to a pot. Then, warm it up over low heat, frequently stirring until heated through.

If a keto soup recipe contains many dairy products like heavy whipping cream and cheese, it may not fare as well in the freezer. Often the texture changes when it is rewarmed. It usually tastes fine but can look different.

What are the best soups to eat on Keto?

Honestly, most soups can easily become keto-friendly with a few simple adjustments. Since you can easily add and subtract most soup ingredients, you can customize a soup to fit your needs. Luckily, this list of the best keto soup recipes has done the hard work for you! By staying away from carb-heavy ingredients like root vegetables, beans, and pasta, these recipes deliver all the goodness of a warm bowl of soup without breaking the rules of keto.

What’s the fastest way to make Keto soup?

When I’m in a rush, I always reach for my Instant Pot. Since it can saute, pressure cook, and speed up the cooking process for dishes that typically take hours to prepare, it’s one of my favorite kitchen appliances. Many of these Keto soup recipes are designed for or can be made in the Instant Pot. If you have a bit more time to plan, the Crock-Pot lets you start a Keto soup in the morning and come home to a perfectly cooked meal. Again, some of the Keto soup recipes listed above are meant to be made in the Crock-Pot, but you can adapt others for the slow cooker.
