Who does not love a simple broccoli soup?

This soup brings back fond memories of  my childhood -  this soup is easy to make and robust in flavor ( oh and it is full of veggie goodness ;) ).

The secret ingredient is sauteed onions — it really elevates this soup to the next level.

So get ready to learn how to make a simple broccoli soup that beats the ones you will find in a restaurant.

This version is not gluten free due to the Campbell Soup used has wheat flour  I usually make my own cheddar cheese soup

Great recipe! When it was almost done I added a little milk and some salt and then mashed up the broccoli!

Can I put the broccoli in frozen? Or do you think it will be too watery?

You don’t say what size slow cooker to use… 1.5 qt, 3 qt, 4qt, or 6 qt?

Rebecca October 4, 2012 at 10:52 am

What is the serving size? I count my calories and it says this serves six but I need to know how much I can eat? : )

Linda January 5, 2013 at 3:54 pm

Either measure amount you have when finished and divide by 6 or put into six bowls until gone.

I have this in my crock pot now. I’m worried I may have done it wrong. I wasn’t clear on whether or not I was supposed to add the milk to the cheddar soup like it asks you on the back of the can or not. I added the milk, but just subtracted an evaporated milk can. Hopefully it turns out okay, I’ve been looking forward to trying this.

Erin October 21, 2012 at 4:49 pm

This is my same question. Do I add the 1 can of milk per can of cheddar cheese soup, in addition to the evaporated milk?

ivonne October 25, 2012 at 7:42 pm

do you put in the broccoli frozen or thawed out?

Reply

Budget Savvy Diva October 25, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I put it in frozen

I work full time and go to school full time. So in order to help my husband out I will surprise him with dinner already done.
So I made this soup first thing this morning so by the time he gets home dinner is done.
Hope he likes it Il let you know how it goes.

OMG this was fantastic and super easy. I’m not a fan of onions so we omitted that and just used onion powder. I ate some the next day on crackers like a dip. My MIL ate 3 bowls as did the rest of us. I made home made croutons and that put it over the top. Thanks for posting this. I’m making it again this weekend since we are due for a snowstorm!!!!! Love crock pot recipes!!!!!! This would be fantastic in a bread bowl or even as a dip. YUMMY!!!!!!

Since I work full time, would it still be good if I leave it in the Crockpot for about 9 hours or will it burn??

Reply

Budget Savvy Diva January 25, 2013 at 5:33 pm

Make sure it is on low – it should be fine — use a crockpot liner so it does not burn

I had to put in the broccoli stems. There was no way that I couldn’t have. I bought 2 16oz bags of chopped broccoli. If I picked out all the stems there wouldn’t have been enough broccoli & it would have taken hours to pick them out. Do you buy broccoli tops only? THe soup is real real thick right now (just placed everything in there). I added some cream to it for cooking. I might blend it up later to see if that thins it out. I cannot wait to taste it. :)

Really good! I accidentally only got one 16 oz bag of broccoli. Luckily I also had some fresh so I chopped it up and threw it in. I also used the stems or I wouldn’t have had enough. When the soup was done I just took a potato masher and broke up some of the bigger chunks of broccoli and stems. Made a very tasty and filling soup. For those who asked above: no you don’t put any additional milk in besides the evaporated milk.

Can this be frozen after? Thinking it would be great for quick meal.

Someone else asked this but I didn’t see an answer. Does anyone know a substitute for the canned cheddar soup? Would 2 cups of cheese sauce thinned a little work?

Reply

Julie June 25, 2014 at 8:23 pm

Can you use fresh broccoli? Would you steam it first?
