Instructions
  1. On a medium/high heat, saute the 3 Tablespoons of butter, diced onion and garlic until onion is soft and translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Place in crockpot.
  2. Next out in frozen broccoli, carrots, broth, water, salt and pepper. Cook on LOW for 6 hours. After cooking time is up, add in milk, cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Stir , recover and cook for 30 more minutes.
  3. Working in batches, process the soup in a blender or with an emulsion blender. Blend as much as you like to get the texture you desire. The girls and I love some broccoli chunks in our soup, so I only blended half of the soup. Add all of the blended soup back to the crockpot until you are ready to serve.
