Broccoli Cheese Soup

I wanted to make a broccoli soup that tasted like broccoli but had tons of other healthy veggies in it too. :) I also increased the protein by adding greek yogurt and milk instead of ALL milk. 

6 c chopped broccoli
2 c chopped cauliflower
2 c spinach
1 c grated carrot
1 package baby bella mushrooms (8-9 oz)
1 c diced onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash chicken flavor
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt substitute
1 can reduced sodium chicken broth
1 can water
5.3 oz container plain greek yogurt
1 c 2% milk
1 c shredded colby jack cheese 


1) Mix all veggies and garlic together in a bowl and put in crockpot.

2) Mix all spices, broth, water, yogurt, and milk together until smooth, and pour over veggies.

3) Cook on low for 8 hours.

4) Stir in cheese and let sit for 30 mins.

5) Carefully (it's hot!) use immersion blender until  the soup reaches your desired consistency.

Portion into plastic containers and put into the fridge if you're going to eat soon, or you can put them in the freezer. Mine made 6 servings, just under 2 cups each. :) So yummy!
