Instant Pot Soups Meal Prep Solutions

There are many benefits to meal prep. Saving money, less food waste, and reducing stress to name a few. But even those who have been doing it for years are constantly on the lookout for ways to make meal prep even easier and take less time. Luckily, this is where the Instant Pot really shines.

The Instant Pot significantly reduces prep and cooking time significantly with its simple set-it-and-forget-it ease. This means you can prepare ahead some of the delicious Instant Pot Soup Recipes in this collection and simply store them in the fridge or freezer in these handy bowls or Ziploc bags until you’re ready to eat.

Imagine preparing a few days or even a week’s worth of meals in advance, knowing you can let the Instant Pot do aaaaaaaaaaaaallll the work.

When planning to freeze your soup, remember to omit toppings and garnishes like tortilla chips, fresh herbs, cheese, or pesto until after the soup has been reheated and is ready to serve.

How to Freeze Instant Pot Soup Recipes

Follow these simple steps for properly freezing your Instant Pot Soups and you too can reap the rewards of Instant Pot meal prep:

  • Place your Instant Pot Soups into these very handy Ziploc freezer bags.
  • Squeeze out all the extra air and seal the bags.
  • Label the bags and then lay them flat in the freezer.
  • Store the Instant Pot soups in the freezer for up to 3 months.

When ready to thaw:

  • Remove the Instant Pot soup from the freezer the night before needed and let it thaw in the fridge.
  • For a faster thaw, you can place the Instant Pot soup in a microwave and thaw according to the microwave’s instructions.

It is important to note that not all soup recipes should be frozen. Freezing soup that includes seafood may cause it to develop some off-flavors. Soups that use cornstarch or eggs as a thickener might become thin and watery when thawed and reheated.

Also, I have found that soups containing dairy or potatoes may change in texture and possibly separate when thawed. If this happens, giving it a quick mixing before reheating to make it all come back together should do the trick.
