So I made a ton of minestrone soup last night - I thought great, leftovers!! And then promptly forgot to get some tupperware and put it away. There's no dairy in there and certainly no meat....is it still good or should I throw it away?

While you may think that since your soup didn't contain meat or meat stock, you'd think it would remain safe unrefrigerated. my recommendation is to not consume once heated carbohydrate-based food that is left at room temperature for an extended period of time.



Here's why -- plant-based foods once heated becomes a potentially hazardous food -- in other words it can support the growth of harmful organisms. Now does it always happen -- no, but the potential is there.



So my recommendation is to not to consume the soup.





Shame



Kindest Regards,

The rule of thumb for food safety is 'if in doubt, throw it out'.

Like the others have said it's probably not going to be good for you to eat it and is possibley harbouring loads of bacteria etc. by now.



However, I did the same thing a week or two ago with a casserole and put it in the fridge when I woke up next morning and continued to eat it the rest of the week, but if you're worried then it's probably best not to chance it (I'm sure this is actually really unhelpful, and probably not even safe, sorry ).

I've done that a few times recently, it's so frustrating isn't it! I always throw it out if it's been sitting more than about 4 hours.

Times like this, it's too bad everyone (myself included) doesn't have a compost bin...

< Has a compost bin.



FYI, I would not put this soup in the compost if it has ANY kind of fats in it (like olive oil or the like) because it will go rancid and smell something AWFUL.



Just a tip from your local urban homesteader.

There are some things I feel comfortable eating after they've been sitting out all night but soup isn't one of them. Although I hate throwing food out and wasting it, I would definetly chuck the soup in the garbage and not risk getting sick from it.
