I made a chilled pea soup that I didn't end up serving at dinner last night. There isn't any cream; just a chicken stock base. Can I freeze it?

It freezes well, how're ever I have found it separates a bit when reheating and this is when I add a bit of cream or more chicken broth. Just as delicious as the first time!

That will work out just fine, Go ahead and freeze it.

Let me amend my response.

Since you didn't bother posting a link to the actual recipe it is impossible to be 100% sure about this, however many fine dining restaurants will make basic soup bases for short-term storage (refrigerator or freezer) and finish to order (add cream/butter/etc.).

If I were you, I'd just freeze what you have and try it out sometime. After all, you will be the ultimate judge of what is acceptable to serve at your table, not us.

Anyhow, good luck.

Thks. I didn't link to the recipe because it is one of my own making. I should have added more detail. The soup has bacon, leeks and shallots in addition to the broth and peas.

Sound like it would freeze well.
