Cheesy Broccoli & Rice Soup Recipe
This soup can be done in a crockpot or on the stovetop. When my men are away I always make a meatless meal for myself. I don’t care if I have meat so easy one pot food is what I normally concoct. Most of the soup recipes I make can be doubled and one batch can be frozen. This recipe is great for that, it freezes well and makes for a hearty meal on days you don’t feel like cooking. I put the extra batch in a ziplock and lay it flat on the shelf to freeze, it takes up less space this way and once it’s frozen I can stack it with my other soup meals.

    Hi Dawn,
    I have had the broccoli rice casserole but never tried the soup. I think with all the snow we are going to get tomorrow I may have to try this for a nice warm dinner. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds really yummy.

      Kris, we are gearing up for the snow tomorrow too. I’m going to make chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles.

    This soup sounds so good. I think that I will be making it in the next couple of days . We are going through a deep freeze right now so at -42 C it will be welcomed.
