How To Thicken Soup

Depending on your recipe, soup should be thickened slightly. If you’re working with a potato soup or soup containing starches, adding some potatoes will do the trick if it needs it.

The classic soup thickener is a slurry – a mixture of cornstarch and water. If you’re working with a large soup that needs to be thickened, make sure to taste it so you don’t add too much cornstarch.

Another popular option is to use a slurry created with flour and water – this can give you a little bit more of a starchy flavor. Browning the flour first will transform the flavor from starchy to nutty.

How To Freeze Soup

Once the soup or stew is completely cooled, I like to fill freezer bags with portions of soup. Don’t forget to label and date the bags.

When defrosting, just use a stovetop set to medium/low heat until the soup is heated through!
