Recipes Notes
The vegetables in soup tend to absorb liquid after being cooked and sitting in the refrigerator overnight. It is wise to purchase an additional 32 oz container of broth for reheating leftovers. Simply portion out the amount of soup that is desired, add in the desired amount of broth, salt and pepper to taste and then reheat.
