CROCK POT -CHEESY BROCCOLI SOUP WITH VELVEETA

It is not the load that breaks you down, it is the way you carry it.

Hello. How about this idea of having a Creamy Broccolli Soup for dinner? If you think it is a good idea, you are right because you can just whip this little monster in the crock pot and when you get home, you are meet with a hearty meal. Oh yeah !

I have made this Broccoli Soup for the third time now and there is still no sign of stopping. It is that delicious. This craze started when my husband and I went to Panera Bread and fell in love to their Broccoli Soup. The thing is , I cannot go to Panera bread whenever I fancy it, because it is kind of expensive for a small meal.

So I made my own version of Cheesy Broccoli Soup, for me to be able to eat it whenever I want to. I usually make a big batch to freeze , but it does not make it to the freezer, because we just it it all the way. It is that good.


Again, I used my ever loyal crock pot to make my soup. I just prepared all my ingredients and toss them in the crock pot, let it cook for eight hours at low and I have my soup. My family love this soup too so I have to keep on making it. NOTE: If you got some Velveeta Cheese left, try this  SPAGHETTI DINNER RECIPE WITH GROUND TURKEY RECIPE , then I have one more post that uses Velveeta as part of the ingredients.

Note

Broccoli is a great source of nutritional benefits, so many people choose to add it to their diet. However, if it is not cooked right, it can lose its nutritional value. If you are worried about your broccoli losing its nutritional value, the good news is you can supplement Broccoli Powder, or Sulforophane, to add back the nutrients you are missing out on. Broccoli Powder is great for its anti-oxidant properties as well as its use for preventing many diseases. It has even been shown to reduce the growth of tumors.
