What’s in Broccoli Cheese Soup?

This crockpot broccoli cheese soup is just so delicious! Here’s a quick look at the ingredients list:

  • Chicken Broth

  • Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • Shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
  • Diced Onions

I like to garnish this soup with sour cream, cilantro, and more cheese, so make sure you have some of that on hand too.

What goes well with Broccoli Cheddar Soup?

I could eat a huge bowl of this soup for dinner and not need anything else, although a bit of hearty bread for dipping is a must! Crockpot broccoli cheese soup goes with so many other things though, so it works as an appetizer or side dish too. I love doing the classic soup and salad or soup and sandwich combo when I make this stuff.

Here are some of my favorite recipes to pair with this soup:

How do you thicken Broccoli Cheddar Soup?

Adding a bit of flour or cornstarch helps to thicken up soups. In this crockpot broccoli cheese soup recipe, we add in the flour with the butter, milk, onions, celery, and garlic to make the “sauce” before adding it in with the rest of the soup. I used whole wheat flour for this recipe, but you can use other types of flour too. This is what helps to give the soup its thick and creamy consistency.

Can you freeze Broccoli Cheese Soup?

Yes, you can easily freeze any leftover soup to save for later. Let the soup cool and then store it in airtight containers. You can then freeze the soup for up to 2 months. I recommend storing it in individual portion sizes so that you can thaw and reheat just as much as you need each time, rather than having to thaw the whole batch when you only need a couple of portions.

To reheat broccoli cheddar soup: let it thaw in the refrigerator, and then heat it on the stove top over low-medium heat. Stir consistently to so it heats up evenly. You could also reheat it in the slow cooker on low heat.
