Frugal Recipe: Broccoli Cauliflower Soup

This soup is delicious anytime of the year, but might be best during the summer because so many of the ingredients are in season and more favorable and fresh because you can buy them locally or grow them yourself. Cooking it in a slow cooker also cuts down on the heat generated in your house.


Head of cauliflower – cut up

Head of broccoli – cut up

One medium onion – diced

A couple stalks of celery – sliced

A pinch of garlic, salt and pepper

2 cans chicken broth – or make your own

1 can cream of chicken soup

2 cups of cheddar cheese soup

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup of milk

½ stick of butter


Add the first six ingredients to your slow cooker, top with water and cook on medium for around six hours. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until blended and melted. Being a carnivore I usually add some diced ham or smoked sausage to this soup, but it’s good without the meat, too.
