Storing Mexican Vegetable Soup

Yes, you can freeze vegetable soup! It will last about 6 -8 weeks in the freezer.

Allow the Sopa de Verduras to cool completely before placing it in a freezer storage bag or airtight container.
If you freeze the soup for a longer time the vegetables start to lose flavor and shape.
