If you are a fan of broccoli cheddar soup then this is a great recipe for you!
My husand, Tim, has been asking for a crock pot full of his favorite soup, so I decided to kick off Katie’s Kitchen will a recipe to warm you up as the temps drop!
I will say it is a different consistency than the soup you may love from Panera, but you can easily change that by just not using the immersion blender as long as I did. Best to puree about 3/4 of the soup.
I did enjoy making this dish because it was sooo easy and quick, and I love throwing things into my crock pot and letting them sit, cook, and smell up my house!
I followed a great recipe from the Well Plated blog, and she made it so easy by including a video, too: https://www.wellplated.com/slow-cooker-broccoli-and-cheese-soup/
Definitely also added a slice of Italian bread for dipping, which made it even more delicious! Tim loved it and can’t wait for me to make it again! Yay! SCORE!
Here are some pictures from my kitchen! (Top left picture is how it turned out! With some extra shredded cheese on top.)
-Immersion Blender (will make life so much easier than transferring soup to puree)
-5 cups of broccoli chopped
-2 1/2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
