Slow Cooker Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Yield: 4
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 lb. fresh broccoli, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a saucepan, heat up the olive oil. Whisk in the flour a little at a time and mix well until it starts to bubble a bit.
  2. Slowly whisk in the chicken/vegetable broth, and then remove from heat.
  3. Pour the mixture into your slow cooker (I use a Crock Pot), and add the chopped broccoli. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until the broccoli is completely cooked. Stir in the cheese 1 cup at a time, allowing it to melt completely before adding the other cup.
