Carrot Tomato Garden Veggie Tempeh Soup FAQs
How long does this soup last?
This soup will last for up to one week in the fridge. You can also store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you choose to freeze it, I recommend doing so in single serving sizes. That way you can easily thaw the amount of soup you need at a time.
