Keeping soup

I am currently making lentil soup and hoping to slowly eat it until Thursday night. Will it keep in the fridge until Thurs or should I freeze some?

      Thanks. that was my thought, but wanted to be sure :)

      appreciate the help.

    2. It will keep, although some vegetables get a bit mushy / funky after several days (like broccoli). It helps to quick cool the soup -- put the pot in a sink of ice water to quickly cool down.

      Lentil soup does freeze well, put single servings in a 1qt zip-loc and press out air the seal. To eat, run the bag under hot water, then break up and put in a bowl to heat.

      1. It'll keep.

        Just reheat the portion you're going to eat. Not the whole pot.
