Miso soup often makes for a hearty companion to your meal or even to use as a broth base for a variety of Asian inspired dishes.

For many home cooks, however, the last thing you’d want to do after a long day is to cook up a storm. This leads to a series of cooking preparations – including making miso soup ahead.

But have you ever wondered if miso soup can be reheated?

Can miso soup be reheated

The answer is yes, miso soup can be perfectly reheated even if you’ve made ahead of time. When kept in an airtight container and left in the fridge, your soup is likely to be safe for consumption within the next 3 days. To reheat your miso soup, simply pour it into a saucepan and heat it to your desired temperature.

Subsequently, you can also freeze your miso soup to keep for up to 6 months. To reheat frozen miso soup, it’s always best to let it thaw in a separate container and leave it in the refrigerator overnight.

This allows you to pour out the portion of soup you’d like to reheat and store the rest back in the freezer for the next time you wish to have miso soup again.
