It’s soup season, y’all! You’re excited about football and soccer season and I’m over here like, I’m just here for the soup! Haha.
I have a classic recipe for you today. Is there anything more yummy and comforting than a big bowl of broccoli cheese soup? My version is made in the slow cooker and is so easy, you are going to want to make it all season long. I hope you love this Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup!
Ingredients for Broccoli Cheese Soup
Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup of course is full of broccoli and cheese, but also fragrant garlic and heavy cream for a flavorful and yummy soup.
- fresh broccoli florets (you could use frozen, but the texture turns out better if they are fresh– the frozen ones get really mushy in the slow cooker)
- yellow onion
- minced garlic
- salt and pepper
- cornstarch (for thickening!)
- vegetable broth
- sharp cheddar cheese (use your favorite brand)
- heavy cream (the recipe says 1-2 cups so if you like things really creamy add 2!)
How to Make Cheesy Broccoli Soup
Making this Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup really couldn’t be any easier. All you have to do is chop your first few ingredients, measure it all out, and throw them in your slow cooker. You’ll want to reserve the cheese and heavy cream to add in at the end.
Make a corstarch slurry with the broth and the cornstarch (this will help thicken your soup and give you that nice and hearty texture that you’re craving!).
Once everything is all cooked, add in your cheese and cream and let that cook until everything is heated up and the cheese is melted.
Ladel into bowls, top with more cheese if you want, and enjoy! This soup would go great with some dinner rolls or some homemade sourdough!

Cheeseburger Soup in the Slow Cooker
This soup was amazing, and so easy to put together. Thanks for another great slow cooker recipe!
Made the slow cooker broccoli cheese soup and, oh boy it was so good! I did a quick sauté of the onions and carrots to soften them up before adding them to the slow cooker but I followed the recipe exactly on everything else. My husband and sister both raved about it. I also made the 1 hour dinner rolls and they were easy to make and delicious
Wow and wow again. Whole family loved this and already talking about when we will have it again. Changes I will make, will be more broccoli, less broth and less heavy cream. Thanks for sharing such a tantalizing recipe
