I had a hankering for broccoli cheese soup recently.
It's always been a favorite. And it's been 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.
This soup recipe uses processed ingredients, which I'm okay with every once in a while. If you prefer from scratch recipes, be sure to check out this light and healthy broccoli cheese soup or this Easy Instant Pot Broccoli Cheddar Soup that begins with fresh broccoli florets and is easily adaptable for vegetarians.
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, considering how easy it is. 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.
