Who doesn’t like hot, creamy soup on a cold day?  Especially if it is loaded with good broccoli and cauliflower so it is healthy too? Crock Pot Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup is that soup!

I also have this recipe as Creamy Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup and it is made on the stove.  If you want a quicker version with the same ingredients, you can pop over and find that one too. 

If you need a crock pot version that you can start in the morning and come home to almost ready then this is what you want.

This recipe has been shared in Meal Plan Monday and Weekend Potluck. Head on over to these great sites for LOTS of new recipes each week!

This recipe is adaptable:

I usually make this soup with frozen vegetables. It can also be made with fresh or leftover vegetables. Just use about the same amount of broccoli and cauliflower and it will be good. I even used a mix of leftover roasted broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts once and it was great!

My original recipe called for two 16 ounce bags of vegetables but that size bag is getting harder and harder to find (in my stores, anyway). I can usually only find the 12 oz bags. I have lately been making the recipe with three 12 oz bags and it is totally fine so I modified the recipe when I gave it a facelift 6/10/19.

It can be made with either 32 oz or 36 oz of vegetables. Either is fine! It is only a difference of 4 oz and it doesn’t matter. It also doesn’t matter if you use more broccoli or more cauliflower or all of one or the other.

Ingredients:

ingredients for Crock Pot Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup

 broccoli 

 cauliflower 

 chopped onions

 chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian)

 heavy whipping cream

 shredded cheddar cheese

 Neufchatel cheese

Instructions:

Gather your ingredients. You can use fresh or frozen (thaw it for faster cooking but you don’t have to) broccoli and cauliflower. You could even use all broccoli or all cauliflower. I love the pre-cut onions in the frozen section of the store for things like this.

Add the vegetables and broth to your sprayed crock pot. Set it to cook on high about 5 hours or low about 8; until vegetables are soft.

I like to puree it very smooth with my hand blender but if you do that, BE CAREFUL! It splatters easily. This is my hand blender. I have used it for years and it works great!

You can also mash it a little or a lot with a potato masher so it is chunky or smooth, whatever you like. The more you mash it, the creamier it will be.

Add the cheeses and cream and stir it until it melts. You can also use a whisk to smooth it in. When the cheese is melted, it is ready to serve

Hi, most vegetarians don’t eat chicken broth so I guess I’m confused on why you would use chicken broth and call it vegetarian? Just a curious vegetarian asking?

Hi Jessica, Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention! When I wrote this, I meant to add the option for vegetarians to use vegetable broth and just forgot that! I'm sorry! It is added now! It should be a delicious vegetarian soup option now. :)

Won't the frozen cauliflower and broccoli be pretty mushy after cooking 5 hours?

Joy

Yes, it does get very soft. That is good when it is going to be pureed or mashed and used as a creamy soup. I also have this recipe (http://myproductivebackyard.com/recipe/creamy-broccoli-cauliflower-cheese-soup/) that is the same ingredients and you cook it on the stove top. You could do it that way if you want firmer vegetables and just not cook it as long. :)

can this be canned? how long if so?

Hi Becky, I have canned tomato or broth based soups but not cream based. All I can find about that is that dairy products are low acid foods and should not be canned (per Penn State Extension). I do see however, some blogs saying that they do can it. I would not recommend it although I love the idea. I have frozen cream based things and they will separate when thawed but given a good stir and warmed up tasted just fine.
