“Very few ingredients...delicious as is or add your own touches. You can also prepare this on the stovetop, but I enjoy using the crockpot, keeping things on warm all day so I can just eat it when I feel like it.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can low-fat cream of celery soup (I use Kroger brand)
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen broccoli (I use Kroger brand)
  • 1 34 cups skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 12 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
  • 2 -3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (mild or sharp)
  • Optional
  • 14 cup grated carrot (I use this when I have them on hand)


  1. Open frozen broccoli, put into microwave safe bowl, and cover. Microwave on high 4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, turn your crockpot on low - put in your soup, milk, and seasonings.
  3. Once thawed, remove broccoli stems, put in food processor - consistency should be finely chopped to pureeed. Put broccoli stems and whole broccoli florets into crockpot. If you buy a frozen bag of only florets, use half in food processor (since you don't have the stems). I prefer florets, but usually I can't find a bag of only florets.
  4. **Optional:. Add some shredded carrot when you add in the broccoli, if you want. I would microwave it 3-4 minutes first with 2 T of water.
  5. Stir all ingredients and cook on high in crockpot 1 hour on low. Add cheese and cook another 30 minutes.
  6. Serve with deli bread or in bread bowl.
