  • Good in slow cooker

    I modified things a little to make this a slow-cooker recipe. I placed the chicken broth, garlic (doubled the amount), chopped broccoli, diced potatoes, and a cup or so of chopped frozen onion in the slow cooker and set it on low for about 8 hours. I placed it in the food processor in batches until mostly smooth, then put it back in the slow cooker. I added a cup of cream, some garlic powder and onion powder, a little red pepper, salt, black pepper, and about 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I left that on low in the slow cooker for another hour or so, then added salt and pepper to taste. Turned out tasty!

    The soup was not as flavorful as I had hoped. I would make this again to use up broccoli since it is so easy to make. Perhaps I should add sharp cheddar next time?

      We’re so sorry to hear this soup wasn’t as flavorful as you had hoped it would be. For more flavor, you could certainly add sharp cheddar cheese instead of parmesan. Another option would be to substitute heavy cream for half of the milk. Also, adding fresh ground black pepper and increasing the amount of garlic and onion in the recipe could add depth of flavor.

    I was looking for a recipe that would use what I had on hand and this fit the bill. Instead of fresh broccoli, I used a bag of frozen broccoli. I pureed the soup right in the pot using my immersion blender. It was perfect.

    The soup is delicious. I ate it for lunch and will be serving the rest for dinner tonight.

    A great soup if you add a little more salt and garlic. Will make again soon, and the whole family loved it including our three year old.
