How to Store Creamy Tomato Soup

To store leftover tomato soup, allow to cool completely. Then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

To freeze, allow to cool completely. Then transfer to a plastic freezer safe container and store up to 3 months. If the cream separates during freezing, simply blend again while reheating on the stove.
