The Easiest Crock Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe
The weather is still pretty chilly outside, and you know what that means…it’s perfect soup recipe time! I can pretty much eat soup all year round but there is something about a nice hot bowl of soup when it’s below freezing outside that just warms my whole soul. I have recently been trying to get my kiddo to eat more vegetables in her diet (fellow parents, I know you all feel my struggle with that one right?) So I thought my crock pot broccoli cheese soup recipe would be the perfect way to get some extra veggies in that I knew she wouldn’t gripe about having to eat! The best part is that I can start it in the morning, and by dinner time the broccoli is perfectly soft and the cheese is creamy and delicious. I always make a big pot of it so that way we can take it to work the next day for lunch! (Which keeps my husband from eating McDonald’s for the 4th time that week, ha!)
