Can you freeze cauliflower cheese soup?

Chowders and bisques, and other soups that contain milk or cream, don not freeze well. They tend to take on a grainy texture and separate when defrosted and rewarmed.

Make this soup fresh and enjoy it over a few days as a side dish at dinner or enjoy a bowl of this soup for lunch.
