How do you know when Curried Creamy Carrot Soup is cooked?

You’ll know your Curried Creamy Carrot Soup is ready when the vegetables are blended, the cream cheese is fully stirred in and your mixture is piping hot throughout. Your veggies will need to simmer for around 30 minutes before blending. 

Here in the UK, the standard advice is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and maintained that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep you and your family safe! 

How long can you keep Curried Creamy Carrot Soup in the fridge?

Once you’ve put it out, ideally you should eat it within 4 hours.

If you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid and chill.  You can keep leftovers of Curried Creamy Carrot Soup in the fridge for approximately 3 days or so. 

Can I freeze Curried Creamy Carrot Soup?

Yes, you can! Our Curried Creamy Carrot Soup is batch-cook friendly. Please just remember to do the following, before freezing;

  • Freeze in batches as soon as it is cold enough.
  • Use containers or bags that are suitable for freezing.

Make sure you label your freezer-safe containers with the name of the recipe and the date, so you don’t lose track.

How do I reheat Curried Creamy Carrot Soup?

To reheat Curried Creamy Carrot Soup from chilled, plate it in a microwave-safe container with loose-fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes, until piping hot throughout.

When cooking soup from frozen, allow it to defrost thoroughly. Heat in the microwave covered with a loose-fitting lid for 3-5 minutes, and then give the mixture a good stir. Cook for a further 5-7 minutes until piping hot.
