Creamy Garlic Broccoli Soup
This full of flavor and aroma, crockpot recipe, is also full of veggies. Onions and potatoes have been added, and the blended potatoes, are what gives this hearty soup, it’s supreme creaminess. Started stove top, and finished in th slow cooker, this simple recipe is simply divine.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 90 mins

1 1/2 pounds broccoli flowerets
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large Onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 to 2 large potatoes
1 quart chicken broth, or beef broth
salt and pepper, to taste
dash red pepper, crushed
1 cup half and half
dash ground nutmeg
bacon bits


Step 1:

Saute onion and garlic in butter until the onions become transparent. Add chopped potatoes, broccoli, broth, salt, pepper and red pepper. Heat to boiling and simmer for about a half hour.
Step 2:

Pour the mixture (about 1/3rd at a time) into the blender and pulse six or seven times for each batch. Place blended soup in crockpot and add half and half and nutmeg. Heat on low for another half hour and then let sit until dinner. Taste for seasoning; garnish and serve warm, not hot.
