Sunday Supper, Slow Cooker Broccoli Asiago Soup

It has been unseasonably cold here this past week,

as it has been in many places in the US,

perfect weather for a steaming bowl of hearty soup!

After making Easy Cheesy Pulled Pork Enchiladas with leftover pulled pork

there was still a little pulled pork left,

Perfect for making little pork buns to pair with

this slow cooker Broccoli and Asiago Soup

With a bag of broccoli florets, jarred minced garlic,

grated Asiago cheese and diced onion

This soup comes together in minutes

{this recipe also calls for chicken broth, not pictured}

Spray or line your slow cooker

and add the broccoli, onions and garlic

Stir it around to mix

and then add the cream cheese, sprinkle with Italian seasoning

and pour in the broth

Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 -4 hours

Add the Velvetta and evaporated milk

Replace cover and continue to cook for 30 minutes to melt Velveeta

then use an immersion blender to puree the soup

Add the Asiago cheese, replace the cover

and cook for 15-30 more minutes to melt cheese

Garnish with grated cheddar cheese and serve

I made little BBQ pork buns to go with the soup

I cut the baked Cornbread Swirls in half,

filled them with pulled pork drizzled with BBQ sauce

and wrapped them in foil heated them in the oven

    Oh, that soup looks so good Jenna! I love soup and cheese is my favorite food, bar none. And you can make it in the slow cooker too which is a bonus. I haven’t had Velveeta cheese in ages – does it still taste the same? Guess I’ll have to try the recipe and find out for myself lol! We’ve had a cold snap here and way more snow that usual – hope your temps warm up down there. Happy Monday to you!

    • Thank you Kim! I know a lot of .people aren’t fans of Velveeta, but it melts like a dream and adds such lovely creaminess…you could always sub grated cheddar and a dash of cream, but I love to use Velveeta!

  12. Asiago cheese lover – must make this one!
