We keep quite a few slow cooker recipes in our weekly meal plans, they are perfect for those busy weeknights. Our families are always asking us to make soups when its cold outside and this week the request was a broccoli and cheese soup.
So we started looking for a cost effective soup that would feed a larger group of people, and oh boy did we find it. This recipe has broccoli, carrots, onion, garlic, lots of cheese and spices. The best part of slow cooker recipes is preparing in the morning setting and forgetting.
Twenty minutes before dinner remove the lid from the crock pot add the evaporated milk then puree using an immersion blender (buy HERE) this makes the soup super creamy. We recommend putting on an apron for this step it will get a little messy. Recover and cook for another 10 min, then you are onto the last step add the cheese, salt and pepper stir for 5 min until melted and serve warm. We love this soup served in a sourdough bread bowl or with warm flaky crescent rolls. You should definitely give this slow cooker recipe a try it’s easy and super delicious. Happy cooking everyone!
