Can I put a cold soup onto a hot plate on shabbos? Should I put something in between the hot plate and the soup?

Answer:

Cold soup may not be heated on Shabbos, by means of a hotplate or by any other means.

The reason for this is that we are concerned for those opinions who rule that even once cooked, heating a cold liquid is considered cooking it again, and therefore involves a Torah prohibition of cooking (see Shulchan Aruch 318:4).

Best wishes.
