Broccoli soup


Princess loves broccoli and loves soup. She is always asking me to make soup. This was a great recipe and super easy. I loved it and it freezes really well. Taken from Crock'in Girls and tweaked.
3 ½ lbs potatoes, peeled and cut into ¾ in pcs
1 small sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped broccoli
4 cups chicken broth
1/3 cup half-n-half
1/3 low fat sour cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 ¼ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
4 scallions thinly sliced
4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled (optional or can use the pieces found in salad dressing aisle)
Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
any other frozen veggie (I used corn, carrots and peas)
Directions:Combine potatoes, red peppers, veggies and broccoli in slow cooker. Pour broth over top; cover and cook 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low.In a small bowl, stir together half-n-half, sour cream, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Remove cover and mash potatoes slightly. Stir in half-n-half mixture and scallions. Spoon soup into bowls when thickened.Garnish with bacon, cheese, and additional sour cream if desired
