Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe

Well friends, this is it, the LAST post of Crocktober!  I just want to take a minute to say thank you for this super fun journey!  I can honestly say that I have fallen in love with my slow cooker and you can look forward to many more posts in the future!  But fear not!  I saved THE BEST Crocktober recipe for last, Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Soup!  

You hear right!  This soup is PHENOMENAL, and it an exact dupe for a certain popular soup and sandwich chain we all know and love!  You are going to go wild for this one so....

Let's Get Started!

Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Soup:
*Prep Time: 3 min *Cook Time:  4.5 hours *Difficulty: Easy *Servings: 6-8


  • 1 bag of Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 1 32 oz box of Velveeta style cheese, cubed
  • 2 c Carrots, grated
  • 4 c Chicken Broth
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Minced Onion 
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt 
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

To begin you will add the broccoli to your crockpot.

Next add the grated carrots.

**TIP:  I added my carrots to my Nutribullet with a little water and pulsed a few times.**

Next add the dried onions, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Of course you can use a fresh onion if you like.

Now add the chicken broth.


And cook on LOW for 4 hours.

After the 4 hours this is what your soup will look like.
It's not pretty, but we are just getting started!  lol

Something that I like to do, but isn't necessary is chopping up the broccoli florets.  I have this nifty thing from pampered Chef, but a potato masher will work as well.

Now you can cut your cheese into large cubes.

Add the cheese to the crockpot, cover, and let cook for 15 to 20 minutes.

This is what it will look like.

Now I know what you are thinking "MANDEE!!!  WHAT HAVE YOU MADE ME DO!?!  THIS LOOKS HORRIBLE!!!"

Calm down, calm down.  Everything is fine.  Just...Start...Stirring.

Yes, you are going to stir and watch the magic unfold right in front of you!

Look at this gorgeous, silky smooth, broccoli cheese soup in front of you.  It is Absolutely MOUTHWATERING!  You are going to love this Crockpot Broccoli Cheddar Soup so get in the kitchen and make it TONIGHT!

OH!  And if you would like to see this made in real time, check out the video below!  :)

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Crocktober!

  1. It is SO yummy and super easy. I actually used regular table for this recipe and it worked great, but I personally am always a fan of Kosher salt. I just didn't have any at the time.

  2. Am iced in today, have a ton of fiddly blog tasks to crush, but I've got fresh broccoli and a bag of shred chedd--I'm goin' for it! Been wanting to try this since, like...Crocktober! I'm stoked :)

    1. OH YAY! I would love to hear about what you thought! Sorry I am just now getting back to you on this!
