Growing up, it was tradition for my family to have soup for lunch on Sundays. It was an easy, make ahead meal that could simmer in the crock-pot while we were in church, and if we had guests – which we usually did – simply adding more water to the pot and another loaf of bread on the table ensured there was enough food for all.
My favorite of all the soups my Mom served was Cream of Broccoli. My sisters and I took turns preparing the soup each Sunday, and when it was my turn, I usually chose Cream of Broccoli Soup. I still make it regularly for our own family.
It’s a natural Trim Healthy Mama-friendly S, made with no special ingredients that’s delicious on its own, but incredible when topped with crumbled bacon bits, cheese, and sour cream.
A word about the mineral salt: this recipe was created without the addition of bacon bits or cheese. If you’re adding these in (and I highly recommend you do!), you’ll want to decrease the amount of salt as bacon and cheese have significant levels of sodium. You can always add more salt later, but you can’t take it out!
A thick and creamy THM S Broccoli Soup that hits the spot. No special ingredients. Top with crumbled bacon, cheese, and sour cream. You can substitute 3-4 cauliflower heads for the broccoli for an equally delicious white soup!

When you did this is the crockpot would you just throw everything in there except for the cream and cook on low? Or do you still need to saute? Im looking for easy recipes with little prep work for busy weeks.
I just threw everything in my crock pot without sautéing and it turned out great!
How long did you cook it in the crockpot?
We have made this recipe twice now, and everyone loves it! Including our semi-picky 2, and 4 year olds! My husband even said tonight, this is my new favorite soup. Thanks for the recipe!
why is there sooooo much onion and celery?
If I were to substitute frozen broccoli for the crowns, how much would I use?
This soup is amazing!!
I like to make cream of broccoli soup with broccoli, a tub of veggie dip and milk to thin.
