Want to grab a soup to work but don’t have access to a microwave?

My dad actually recommended this product after starting his weight loss journey. He’s obsessed with homemade soup (and may I add his soup maker ..) and he was dying to bring soup to work. His workplace doesn’t have access to a microwave, so he invested in this fantastic soup thermos bottle. It keeps food hot for up to 6 hours! Perfect for soup, porridge, curry etc.

Is this soup safe to freeze?

Yes, this recipe is perfect for batch cooking! Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Also, store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days before heating it up in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot.
