Refrigerate the leftovers. It freezes great too. Cool leftover soup and place it in an air tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat, set in the fridge overnight or run cold water over the container and pop back into a soup pot. Stir occasionally over medium heat until it’s rewarmed. You can also microwave it.
