Ingredients

    1 (14 oz) bag of frozen Broccoli
    1 (14 oz) bag of frozen Cauliflower
    1 cup Carrots, chopped
    4 cans (14 oz) Chicken Broth
    2 cups Milk
    1 Tbls Minced Onion
    1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
    1 tsp Salt
    Dash of Black Pepper
    1 lb (16 oz) Processed Cheese (Velvetta)
    1 cup All Purpose Flour
    1 2/3 cup Water

Directions

Crockpot Directions:
1. Put Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrots in crockpot. Cover with the 4 cans of Chicken Broth. Add Milk, Minced Onion, Garlic Powder, Salt, and Pepper. Cook on Low for 1 - 2 hours until simmering. Cube cheese (1 inch or less) and stir into soup. Melt cheese, stirring occasionally. Simmer as long as you'd like, on Low, until about 10 mins before ready to serve. In a separate container, mix flour and water. While stirring constantly (or even using a hand mixer), slowly pour flour/water mixture into soup to thicken. You don't have to use the whole mixture, just enough to your desired thickness. Serve.

Stove Top Directions:
Place Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrots in a pot. Cover with 4 cans of Chicken Broth. Simmer for 10 - 15 mins or until Broccoli is tender. Reduce heat and stir in Cheese until melted. Stir in Milk, Minced Onion, Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper. In a separate container, mix flour and water. While stirring constantly (or even using a hand mixer), slowly pour flour/water mixture into soup to thicken. You don't have to use the whole mixture, just enough to your desired thickness. Serve.

Makes about 12, 1 cup servings. Can reduce fat and calories by using low fat milk, low fat cheese, and low fat broth.

  • This is very good. The first time I made in the crock pot and curdled it :( I made again on the stove and it turned out wonderful. Very good and you can't really taste the cauliflower. Will make again. Thanks! - 1/26/14

    Use 2X amount of Broccoli instead of Broccoli + Cauliflower
    Grate the carrots

  • I made this on the stove but simplified it by not thickening it. I grated carrots into it instead. Also used only 8 oz of 2% Velveeta (low fat), and used a potato masher on the veggies to make it sip-able. My husband HATES cauliflower, but he loved this soup. It was very filling too. - 3/17/08
