DIRECTIONS

  • Open frozen broccoli, put into microwave safe bowl, and cover. Microwave on high 4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, turn your crockpot on low - put in your soup, milk, and seasonings.
  • Once thawed, remove broccoli stems, put in food processor - consistency should be finely chopped to pureeed. Put broccoli stems and whole broccoli florets into crockpot. If you buy a frozen bag of only florets, use half in food processor (since you don't have the stems). I prefer florets, but usually I can't find a bag of only florets.
  • **Optional:. Add some shredded carrot when you add in the broccoli, if you want. I would microwave it 3-4 minutes first with 2 T of water.
  • Stir all ingredients and cook on high in crockpot 1 hour on low. Add cheese and cook another 30 minutes.
  • Serve with deli bread or in bread bowl.
