(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 141 )
Don’t forget: You have ’til Friday (2/21/14) to enter my latest Crock Pot Giveaway!
I had a hankering for broccoli cheese soup.
It’s always been a favorite.
And ages since I’ve indulged.
So, I tossed a few ingredients in the crock pot yesterday afternoon.
And was rewarded with this creamy and delicious slow cooker broccoli cheese soup that we gobbled up for supper last night.
It was perfect served along with a few slices of lightly toasted hearty whole grain bread.
Rod said that this soup ranked right up there with Friday night’s Moroccan chicken, which I consider a huge compliment.
And he didn’t want it to end. So, he had seconds!
This really is an amazing soup. I didn’t want to stop eating it either. It tasted so creamy and delicious. I’d never guess it was light.
I probably could have adapted this stove top broccoli cheese soup recipe for the slow cooker. Instead I took the lazy way out and adapted a recipe from Fix-it and Forget-it 5-Ingredient Favorites: Comforting Slow Cooker Recipes that I was able to toss together in less than 10 minutes.
This slow cooker broccoli cheese soup is a winner. I’ll definitely be making it again.
- 3 cans (10.75 ounces each) cream of potato soup
- 1 package (16 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
- 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 can (12 ounces) low fat evaporated milk
- 8 ounces reduced fat velveeta cheese (about 2 cups cubed)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 3 to 4-Quart
- Place the potato soup, broccoli, and broth in the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 or until the broccoli is very tender.
- During the last 30 minutes of cooking time, stir in the evaporated milk and cubes of velveeta and continue cooking, with the lid on, until the cheese is melted and soup is hot.
- Taste and season with salt and pepper.
This would be good with a little fresh chopped basil stirred in at the end too.
