To lighten the soup up a bit, use half cream and half chicken broth, or use milk and add it just before the soup is done.  Garnish the soup with some shredded cheddar cheese or croutons.

Expert Tips

  • When blending hot liquids, never fill the blender above the halfway mark. To blend hot soup, fill the blender about one-third full. Loosen the cup in the lid, place a folded kitchen towel over it, and hold the lid down firmly. Pulse until smooth. See Also:  How to Puree Soup in a Blender
  • Cut cooking time by steaming the broccoli before adding it to the slow cooker.
