Crockpot Broccoli Cheese Soup

Sunday, January 11, 2015

THIS soup is a winner. Make sure you give it a try on a cold and blustery day like today. It doesn't disappoint. It's tasty and it takes almost no time to put together. Plus, it's a favorite for kids. (Cheese? Yes! Broccoli? Yes!) What's not to like?


Crockpot Broccoli Cheese Soup

4 Tbsp butter
5 Tbsp flour
3 cups half and half
3 cups vegetable broth
1/2 onion, diced
3-4 cups chopped broccoli florets 
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 oz cream cheese
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
extra shredded cheese for topping


  1. In a large sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. 
  2. When melted, stir in the flour until mixture begins to clump. 
  3. Whisk in the half and half in very gradually until it all has been added and a thick white sauce forms.
  4. Add onions, broccoli, garlic, Italian seasoning, and cream cheese to your crockpot. Add the white sauce and the vegetable broth. Stir to combine. 
  5. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 4-6 hours.
  6. Add the sharp cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir until the cheese melts into the soup. 
  7. Serve warm topped with additional shredded cheese if desired.
