A roux of butter and flour may also be used as a thickener. The longer the roux is cooked the darker and more flavorful it becomes. Be careful not to scorch the roux or it will give the soup an unpleasant burned taste. Cream is another alternative to not only thicken but add a luxurious richness to soups. A cornstarch slurry of 1 part cornstarch to 2 parts liquid will also thicken soup; do not boil or the solution will break down. Freezing and Reheating Soup... Most soups freeze beautifully. Consider preparing large batches of soup so that there will be extra to freeze and serve at a later date. Chill soup in the refrigerator and skim off any fat that rises to the surface before freezing. Freezing cream-based soups may cause separation. If the soup does separate while reheating whisk vigorously with a wire whisk or try blending it in a blender for a few minutes to smooth it out. Reheat frozen soups in the microwave or thaw at room temperature and heat in a heavy saucepan over low heat on the stovetop.

The best method of thickening most soups and stews is to remove some of the cooked vegetables puree them in a blender and return the pureed mixture to the soup. (Do not fill the blender more than one-third full with hot vegetables to prevent getting burned from splashes of hot puree.) In the event that the soup is short on vegetables or there are none in the soup try one of the following thickening techniques: Make a paste of all-purpose flour mixed with twice as much cold broth or water. The ratio of flour to liquid is 1-1/2 teaspoons of flour to 1 tablespoon of liquid for every 1 cup of soup. Slowly stir the paste into simmering soup and continue to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
